This foreign envoy had completed his stint in this country and called on the former strongman to say goodbye.  


While recalling the landmark events he had occasion to witness during his three-year sojourn here, the envoy suddenly digressed to the subject of the upcoming big poll here.  


Thereafter, their attention turned to the candidates likely to enter the fray at the big poll. At this stage, the envoy asked the former strongman who would be his party’s candidate at this poll. The former strongman replied that they were yet to decide on their candidate. He then asked the envoy who would be the Green party’s candidate at the poll, according to his information. The envoy who greeted this question with a guffaw said: “Who could be their horse other than the obvious one!” He added: “He apprised me of his readiness to enter the race. In fact, I told him that he had our blessings too.”  


The envoy also expressed his opinion on the chances each candidate stood of winning the race. We are sorry that we have no permission to reveal anything more of what transpired during this intimate conversation.
