Between 1993 and this year, that’s thirty years, Atiku Abubakar, former vice president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, would have contested the presidential election eight times. Twice – in 2007 and 2019 – he was a candidate on the platform of two different parties, and thrice – in 1993, 2011 and 2015 – he was stopped at the primaries level. He won twice – in 1999 and 2003 – as a vice president. This year will be his eighth. He has earned the honour of being addressed as a veteran. ‘Veteranship’ comes with the knowledge and wisdom of the person who strode that path.

 After reading the address, it was time for questions and answers that would enable the editors have an insight into the mind and thinking of the man but his handlers told shocked editors that he had another appointment somewhere and he won’t be able to entertain questions. He left immediately and Fashola was the one that provided answers to most of the questions meant for the retired general.
