The former Vice President had during the week paid Sallah homage to the duo of former military rulers – Ibrahim Babangida and Abdulsalami Abubakar, at the homes in Minna, Niger State.

With more than three years before the 2027 election, the visits to the former Nigerian leaders could be a grand move by Atiku for another shot at the nation’s highest political office.

He was defeated in Nigeria’s last two presidential elections by Buhari and President Bola Tinubu respectively.
