In the book “Atiku: The Story of Atiku Abubakar,” the former vice president talks about why he chose to marry more than one woman when he was young. Atiku said, “I wanted to grow the family of Abubakar. As a child, I felt very alone. I didn’t have any brothers or sisters. I didn’t want my kids to feel as isolated as I did. Because of this, I had more than one wife. My wives are my brothers, sisters, friends, and counselors, and they help each other out.
