Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has jetted out to France for medical care.
The trip, it was gathered, took place on Monday shortly after his campaign rally in Kaduna.
It would be recalled that a now estranged wife of Atiku, Jennifer Jemila Atiku, recently revealed that her ex-husband was admitted in a German hospital for undisclosed medical condition.
It was learnt that the former vice president left for France from Abuja to attend to urgent medical appointment with his doctors.
A source told Westernpost: “Former Vice President travelled yesterday night to France where his doctors are waiting for him. He had to go immediately after rally in Kaduna because of the urgent need to attend to his health.
“He has health challenge he is managing and he needs to be in good shape as we go deeper into the campaign season. His handlers feel that he should attend to pending and routine medical issues as the campaign season gets more demanding and take further toll on him.”
