August 18, 1973, the date Vice President Atiku Abubakar claimed to have signed an affidavit in court claiming to be the same person as Sadiq Abubakar has turned out to be a Saturday.
From time immemorial, courts in Nigeria do not open for business on Saturdays and Sundays, being work-free days in the country.
