Mr Abubakar in his message to Nigerians on Sunday in Abuja said that the office of the president, in particular, required that the holder of that office to have clarity of the mind on decision-making.

Mr Abubakar said that the decision of making a running mate and how it was made in countries that have acquired more experiences in democratic acculturation, provided a window of assessing their preparedness for the job that potentially waits ahead of them.

He said that in meeting up with the expectation, and more importantly to ensure that he make a pick of a running mate that Nigerians shall be proud of, it became necessary for him to be introspective about his choice.
