A private meeting which held between Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubaka and United States Chamber of Commerce has been confirmed by the body.
According to a mail sent to newsmen, Katharine Cooksey, senior manager, media and external communications, US Chamber of Commerce said no media was on attendance.
Atiku, who recently arrived from USA for the first time after almost 13 years, had a business roundtable with the USCC.
Shortly after the meeting, the presidential hopeful took to his Facebook page to reveal the outcome of the meeting.
During the meeting, Atiku said he shared his plan to get Nigeria working again.
He wrote, “At the U.S. Chamber of Commerce business roundtable, I shared my plan to get Nigeria working again. I also reiterated my commitment to devolution of powers at the centre thereby allowing for a smaller, and more effective federal government.
The chamber is the largest lobbying group in the US, spending more money than any other lobbying organization on a yearly basis.
Atiku has built his campaign around job creation, running with the tagline: “Atiku means jobs”. It is, however, unclear how Atiku’s meetings will further facilitate his quest to create jobs in Nigeria.
