The frenzy about the presidential bid of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, especially following his December 2017 return to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), seems to be waning with time.
For some political analysts, the outcome of the National Convention of the former ruling party didn’t go the way of the perennial presidential aspirant and hence the political equation on his table, when he left the All Progressives Congress (APC), fell flat on his face.
Since then, the former VP has at best been on the social media and issuing statements to push for daily relevance and of course, pockets of support groups are in their usual manners endorsing and holding symposiums for him. But in the real sense of consultations and relevance in the party machinery, Atiku is nowhere to be found.
Is it that he is aware of the game plan to use his name to rev up the party and dump him? Is he making underground incursions and strategizing without the knowledge of the public or has he given up his ambition considering his age and the intrigues in the PDP? Isn’t it a case of jumping from frying pan to fire for the former number two man?
