Family, close aides storm airport as Atiku returns to Nigeria
Former Vice President and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party during the 2019 general elections, Atiku Abubakar, has returned back to the country from his Dubai home after his nine-month stay outside the country.
Atiku arrived in Nigeria on Saturday night through the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport after being away from the country since February this year.
He was received upon his return by close aides, few family members and political associates in adherence to Covid-19 protocols.
Atiku’s return could be connected to the upcoming wedding of his son, Aliyu Abubakar, who holds the title of Turaki Adamawa, a position the former Vice President previously occupied before his being crowed as Wazirin Adamawa, the second highest title in the Fombina Emirate.
