Welby‘s Visit to Atiku Generates Debate – Thisday reports:
The age-long friend and admirer of President Muhammadu Buhari, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, saturday paid an incredible visit to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in his Abuja home.
The visit which took many by surprise was interpreted by many to imply that the former vice-president who emerged as the PDP presidential flag bearer in Port Harcourt last Saturday might be securing international support for his ambition.
Welby who was in Nigeria saturday for an inter-faith dialogue, was accompanied to the house of Atiku by the outgoing British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Paul Arkwright.
Both Welby and Arkwright, were received by Atiku and the National Chairman of PDP, Uche Secondus as well as the Director-General of Atiku Campaign Organisation, Gbenga Daniel.
Later in the night, Welby along with the Sultan of Sokoto and other religious leaders were hosted to a dinner by Buhari in the Presidential Villa.
Welby’s visit to Atiku, Buhari’s main challenger at the forthcoming presidential poll, however, generated interest in view of his relationship with latter which spanned decades, beginning from the time the archbishop lived and served in Nigeria as an Executive Director of the French oil corporation, Elf Aquitaine, in the 1970s when the Buhari was Nigeria’s Minister of Petroleum.
