2023 PRESIDENCY: 'Tinubu May Emerge The Sole Candidate From Southwest'

Share This

The battle for the 2023 presidential elections is getting more and more intriguing, from close observations it seems the battle to return the presidency to the Southwest is at the front burner of the Southwest agenda.

The All Progressive Party, APC which happens to be the ruling party seems to have tactically zoned the presidential ticket to the South, many attribute the choice to a gentleman's agreement that power should return to the South after Buhari serves an uninterrupted eight years.

Now the South which is comprised of the South-West, South-South and South-East is now the battleground. Which region would pick the ticket is now the bone of contention.

The South-West has five serving governors under the platform of APC, while the South-South has no serving Governor and the South-East has 2 serving governors.

Let me start from the South-South which unfortunately has no APC governors amongst its fold. In the South-South only one man is seen to have the clout to match other contenders from the South-West and South-East, the presidency is not a tea party and big funds are involved here, with no sitting Governor it would be a herculean task to get the endorsement of delegates.

Of course, former President Goodluck Jonathan is the man in question, it is expected that his candidacy may secure the South-South votes en-bloc for the APC.

Take note any aspirant that can not guarantee a clean sweep of his region would be relegated and considered a Lilliputian.

Jonathan has the clout and resources, his chances however is a subject for another day's discussion.

For the South-East we have two serving Governors on the APC platform, Hope Uzodinma in Imo State and David Umahi of Ebonyi State.

The chances of both candidates are very minimal in that the South-East is not an APC friendly party.

If the South-East produces the president and even the vice president as flagbearers at the same time the Igbos may still reject the APC at the general polls.

According to privilege information, the South-West is actively concerned about the return to power to the region. The region has practically kicked started its own race towards the 2023  presidential elections.

No day passes by without the South-West monarch's not holding one politically inclined meeting or the other towards the 2023 presidential elections.

If you take a precise trajectory of events ongoing in the South-West you would notice the grave silence from other potential aspirants aside from Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Top Yoruba leaders are openly voicing out their support for Tinubu and reaching out to the Yoruba traditional rulers for their support as well.

Now don't get me wrong on this, some would ask if it is only Tinubu that is capable from the South-West? Of course not, the issue is this... Tinubu is the rallying point.

It was the same case that played out in the 2015 residential elections where Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was the rallying factor that produced Prof Osinbajo as vice-president to Buhari, Tinubu personally did the introduction.

Again this point raised is another factor that is going on well for Tinubu's presidential bid, his judgment has always been acknowledged to be profound and full of wisdom.

Today Professor Osinbajo is regarded as a blessing to the Buhari's administration.

In a nutshell, Tinubu would have the last say on where the South-West would sail. And again this has nothing to do with Godfatherism, instead, the South-West who are known for their high political sophistry has decided to bring in their best for the presidency.

Give and take Tinubu would play the last joker and may emerge as the sole candidate of the South-West for the All Progressive Party, APC.

I clearly see the five APC governors in the South-West aligning with Tinubu's vision.
