As Vice President Atiku Abubakar's media adviser from June 2003 to April 2005, I had the tedious task of going through a steady flow of unsolicited proposals for a biography on him. Some of these proposals, mostly from people who hardly knew him, were written by adoring fans or worshipful political supporters who genuinely wanted to market his inspiring life story and leadership qualities to the literate public.

A South- South author who had written on many public office holders in Nigeria, wanted to be commissioned to write "the definitive Atiku biography". Someone wrote from Abuja for permission to ...
