He got some, after a lot of efforts and persistence, but there were those who could not be persuaded to talk. Some of these are people who being interested in the throne of their fore fathers did not want to flout the instructions of elders who cautioned against undue publicity.

The cover story x-rays the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari and his relationship with the Nigerian populace, those for whom he holds the mandate to govern Nigeria till 2019.
