The presidential candidate of the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC), in the 2023 presidential elections may probably emerge from the Southern part of the country. In the light of this, the political chances of former Governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the party in Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and incumbent vice president, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, to be at the front-line of the choice of the party, in the course of picking the 2023 presidential candidate of the party could not be overemphasized.

Considerably, both Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Professor Yemi Osinbajo are politically versatile, agile and strong to lead the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC), toward retaining the presidential seat beyond 2023.
However, there are some reasons why some northern cabals who are members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) may, personally, choose to support Professor Yemi Osinbajo ahead of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in the course of picking the presidential candidate of the party for the 2023 presidential poll.
First, the fact that vice president, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, is a southern christian may convince the northern APC cabals to support him to be picked as the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), in the 2023 presidential poll.

The choice of vice president, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, as the next presidential candidate of APC by the northern APC cabals may allow them to easily push forth one of their appraised members to become the running mate to Professor Osinbajo, unlike if Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is supported by the cabals.
Considerably, it may seem tedious for the cabals to source for a competent christian northerner among them who can serve as running mate to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a southern muslim, if he is supported by the cabals.
Secondly,the fear and respect for the political doggedness of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu may discourage the northern cabals to avoid any attempt to support him to become the presidential candidate of the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC), in 2023.

Surely, one of the major fears that the northern APC cabals may be taking into consideration to choose who they may support between Professor Yemi Osinbajo and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the 2023 presidential poll is, surely, the proximity of having their says and ways if either of the two great men become the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Undoubtedly, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a political icon whose experience in the field of Nigerian politics can never be toyed with, by any members of the northern APC cabals.
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu may seem difficult, or not likely possible, to be controlled by the cabals than Professor Yemi Osinbajo whose political experience is, probably, not as rugged as that of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
