Lai said the federal government has the account mandate, cheque and account statement showing Atiku as the signatory to the account that received part of the slush fund.

“We want him to stay in the US for as long as he wants but he has to explain to Nigerians when he returns.

“ We are not perturbed about his trip. He can go ahead and get a US green card. That will not save him from imminent defeat in the forthcoming election, ” he said.
