It had been alleged that the former vice president was banned from the country after allegedly demanding a bribe of $500,000 to facilitate the award of contracts to two American telecommunication firms in Nigeria.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole had earlier in the year alleged that the former vice president is unable to travel anywhere except Dubai.
