I have met many different people right from the time I began as a journalist. But meeting Ahmed Abubakar was the best thing that ever happened to me since the beginning of my journey in the pen profession. I have learned priceless lessons just by being at his side for the few years I have met him.

When I first joined the correspondent chapel in Jigawa, Ahmed Abubakar being the chairman of the chapel was the first person that accepted me to the group and since then, I have enjoyed zero discrimination being the latest person to be part of a people that some have been together for over twenty years.

My natural stubbornness has seen me and him fell into terminal conflicts. But irrespective of that I still managed to become one of the closest people to him. Well, many will claim they are close to him as well, and that is very true. That’s Ahmed for you.

I have never known his permanent enemy. In the little time, I have been with him, I know of some.
