With less than two years to the highly anticipated 2023 Presidential election, politicians in the country have undoubtedly start to work underground in a bit to achieve their political ambition. Although many Southerners are of the view that power should be shifted to the south based on the alleged unofficial power rotation agreement between the North and South, it is important to note that power is never given on a platter of gold. As such, the North may also filed a candidate for the 2023 Presidential election.
Based on the belief that Atiku Abubakar, a former President of Nigeria who is from the North, may be contesting for the 2023 Presidential election, and the South’s determination to produce the next president of Nigeria, I have taken it upon myself to President three politicians who may be contesting the election, for us to discuss on who we think will make a better candidate and president for the country.
First on this article is Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a former Governor of Lagos State, and National Leader of the APC. Bola Tinubu’s determination to become the next president of Nigeria is no longer a news to many. However, looking at his political career and personality, there are some who are of the view that he is not good for the position, while others believe that the former Governor is the kind of person the country need at this point in time.
The former Governor of Anambra State was the running mate of Atiku Abubakar under the PDP during the 2019 general election. However, they lost to President Buhari and APC. Since then, there have been calls in some quarters that the Anambra born Billionaire should run for the number one seat in the country, particularly in the face of the rising demand that the Southeast should produce the next president of Nigeria.
The former Vice President of Nigeria has been a regular contender for the number one seat in the country, and is equally expected to contest again come 2023. However, there are some who are of the view that the Adamawa Born Politician should not be allowed to contest due to the belief that it is the turn of the south to produce the next president of Nigeria.
While the objective of this article is not to discuss the personalities of those mentioned above, it has become imperative that we weigh our options properly before voting in anyone into office in order to avoid regrets. Therefore, I would like to hear from you, who you think that Nigerians should support to become the next president of the country come 2023. Feel free to drop your comments below. Thank you.
