“I am done with contest at state level, but will hopefully contest for president. Already some political elite and some Mallams are working to bring the idea into fruition.
“Even last night, one of the Mallams called me and swore that I appeared in his dreams as a president, chauffeur-driven in a black presidential car.
“Then I told the Mallam a related story my secondary school friend who was a former commissioner during Mahmuda Shinkafi administration told me”.
Quoting the friend, Mr Yerima said: “A chalky white aboriginal Arab man suddenly appeared near Harem, greeted my friend and declared ‘you must be from Zamfara’.
“He then asked ‘where is our father Senator Ahmad Sani Yeriman Bakura? And my friend responded that I was fine.
“He asked my friend to extend his high regards to me, and then told them that God willing, I will rule Nigeria, except if I died.
“The man then bade them goodbye and as they turned to leave the point, my friend’s wife suggested that they should ask for his name so it could be easy to relate the message.
“To their utmost surprise, the man disappeared, and was nowhere to be found.
“When my friend told one of his Mallams [marabouts] about the incident, the Mallam declared it was a revelation conveyed by God [through the mystery Arab man].”
