For the ruling party to be successful in the upcoming presidential election that has been scheduled to hold in the next two years, the party needs the support of some politicians who are extraordinarily significant in the country. Although some people claim that the All Progressive Congress (APC) does not need to involve some politicians in the plans for the forthcoming presidential election.
If the ruling party under the leadership of Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State needs to consider any third-party politician in the party’s plan for the 2023 election, the party needs to think of former President Olusegun Obasanjo was once a two-term president of the country. He was one of the people that formed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in its early stage.
The All Progressive Congress (APC) needs him. The potential aspirant of the ruling party, Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu, needs to find a way to get in touch with Former President Olusegun Obasanjo to discuss his twenty twenty-three future ambitions with him. Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu needs to consider the following reasons in order to bed now for Obasanjo’s support.
Firstly, Obasanjo and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu belong to the sane geopolitical zone and it won’t be proper for someone to lose his area in politics. The only politician that can pose problems for Tinubu in the Southwestern part of Nigeria is Chief Olusegun Obasanjo. If the two impregnable politicians can be convinced to work together for the sake of Yoruba land, Obasanjo will definitely support Tinubu.
Similarly, Obasanjo is a logical politician that reasons before taking steps. In the year 2015 when former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan was doing some things that Obasanjo did not like, he tried to caution him but he didn’t listen to Obasanjo. Obasanjo logically reasoned that it is good for him the party temporarily. If APC begs for Obasanjo’s support, he would be of help to APC in Ogun State and all Southwestern states at large.
The All Progressive Congress (APC) needs to win this particular election and the party members should do everything they have to do to secure the love of their political enemies before the commencement of the electioneering processes. If APC considers begging Obasanjo now, the party has higher chances of winning the forthcoming election than any other party.
