He had been advertised as one of those to grace the event, but former Head of State Muhammadu Buhari was nowhere near Ribadu Square in Jimeta-Yola as the All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday held a Grand Rally in the Adamawa State capital in North-East Nigeria to receive former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.

Both Atiku and Buhari are believed to be nursing presidential ambition and some analysts have predicted that the influx of “strange bed fellows” into APC may soon ignite crisis in the party.

Curiously, rather than join APC chieftains from across the country at the Grand Rally, retired Gen. Buhari, the joint National Leader of the party with former Lagos State Governor Bola Tinubu, chose to stay back in his Kaduna base in the country’s North-West, where he featured as guest at a personality programme at Liberty Radio based n the state capital.

Both Buhari and Atiku have tried in the past to become president but to no avail.
