Nigeria went to polls on February 23 to pick a new president. Currently, President Muhammadu Buhari and former vice president Atiku Abubakar are the frontrunners in the 2019 race for the presidency. Atiku is a familiar foe for the ruling All Progressives Congress having been a member until last December when he decamped and returned to Peoples Democratic Party. It is Atiku's fourth run for the presidency after failed attempts in 2007, 2011 and 2015.
