I'm not in your class, tell the world what prevents you from going to the US, rather than bandying unfounded stories, President Muhammadu Buhari, said on Saturday, as he took on former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar.

In a quick riposte, to the claim of Atiku, that he (Buhari), was a time barred from entering into the US on religious ground, the President said, the former VP could be speaking of another person, as he had always had the privilege of being welcomed in any part of the world of his choosing.

Buhari, however did not say if he actually travelled to the US during the period, but was quick to point out that Atiku’s comments were “fictive,” and did not represent the true picture of things regarding his standing with several countries and their leaders, who had always shown great eagerness to welcome him.

The President’s strong rebuttal, was conveyed by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, thus: “Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, claims in an interview published Saturday that "for about 15 years, Buhari could not enter America on account of religious considerations."

“This fictive concoction being passed off as truth is mind boggling, coming from a former Number Two man of Nigeria, who should know the truth. At no time was President Buhari, as a private person, ever forbidden from entering any country in the world. Rather, the rest of the world has always held Muhammadu Buhari as a man of sterling qualities, strong on integrity, transparency and accountability.

“The same testimony is still borne of the Nigerian President by many world leaders today. It is curious that former VP Abubakar had been asked why he had not visited America for over a decade, something that had been a stubborn fact dogging his footsteps. Instead of answering directly, he begged the question, saying Buhari also had been disallowed from entering the same country for 15 years, before becoming President.

“We hereby make it resoundingly clear that what the former Vice President said only exists in the realm of his imagination. If he has issues to settle with American authorities, he should do so, rather than clutch at a straw.”
