• Why the serial contender won’t quit on his ambition

He that strives to touch the stars, oft stumbles at a straw, goaded by desire. Apparently, desire manifests like rabies on a great man. Some have likened it to an innate madness, borne from the bite of unbridled yearning. Others have called it the grand enemy of all peace and the nemesis of patrician men. But Atiku Abubakar seems oblivious of these facts.

Driven by his ambition, he would do everything and anything to become Nigeria’s President, come 2023. Having failed in his previous attempts, the former Vice President and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, is leaving nothing to chance, this time around.

Perhaps someone among his team of aides and advisers would painstakingly interpret to his understanding, the recent memo issued by the former military dictator, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (IBB), concerning the calibre of men worthy of contending for Nigeria’s presidency at the 2023 general elections.

IBB ahead of his eightieth birthday anniversary this month, expressed his confidence in the country’s capacity to be great given its human and natural endowments.

He gave his opinion about who should emerge as Nigeria’s president from the 2023 presidential election, hinting at a few unnamed individuals, whom he said were in their 60s, and had the capacity to occupy the nation’s number one seat. According to him, these individuals could effectively run the country.

Visualising the country’s ideal presidential candidate, he said that such a person should be able to traverse the different parts of the country and make friends everywhere; he should also be able to listen to the people and communicate effectively with them at every level.

The former military President made this assertion during an interview with Arise Television, on Friday, focusing on the state of the Nation.

According to him, Nigeria has refused to progress and achieve the dreams of the founding fathers was because Nigerians no longer believed in the future of their own country, he opined.

The former leader accused Nigerians of creating and at the same time, destroying their own country, identifying bad leadership as a major cause of the country’s socio-economic challenges.

On leadership, IBB said, “If you get a good leadership that links with the people and tries to talk with the people; not talking on top of the people, then we would be okay.

“I have started visualising a good Nigerian leader. That is, a person, who travels across the country and has a friend virtually everywhere he travels to and he knows at least one person that he can communicate with.

“That is a person, who is very versed in economics and is also a good politician, who should be able to talk to Nigerians and so on. I have seen one, or two or three of such persons already in his sixties.”

The Minna-born ex-military president said that the fellow could emerge triumphant in the 2023 presidential election if Nigerians could get him.

He reiterated his staunch belief in the unity of the country lamenting that “Nigerians don’t believe in the future of their country. They created and they destroyed.”

Apparently, Atiku hasn’t gotten the memo from IBB; if he did, he would understand that men like him aren’t welcome in the 2023 presidential race.
