“If that union had taken place, the election of Nigeria on February 25, 2023 would have ended by 12pm. In fact, some of us would have been in Dubai or Paris dining when we would be told that we have won the election.
“But you know, ego would be what I considered to be part of the issues. And people think that what we say in the press is what happens in actual life.
“I don’t want to go into it because there could still be another chance for us to talk to each other.”
