The aircraft conveying the former vice president touched down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja at about 3:00pm on Saturday.

He was received at the airport by leaders of the opposition party, including former Cross River State Governor Liyel Imoke and former Foreign Affairs Minister Tom Ikimi among others.
The PDP presidential candidate was accompanied to the US by the Director General of PDP Presidential Campaign Council and Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, as well as Senator Ben Murray-Bruce, among others.
While in Washington D.C., Atiku met with some Nigerians and participated in a business roundtable at the US Chamber of Commerce.
He also held discussions with some Nigerians living in D.C. metropolis where he revealed his plans and commitment to working with them to ensure the development of Nigeria if elected president.
He had reiterated his commitment to the devolution of powers at the centre, thereby “allowing for a smaller, and more effective Federal Government”.
