Two APC Presidential Aspirants Who Might Get Atiku's Support In 2023 Presidential Race

As the 2023 Presidential Race is fast approaching, Different Presidential Candidates have been showing interest to contest Presidential election in their various Political Parties. However, Some Presidential Aspirants might not be able to realise their Presidential ambition in 2023. It is no more news that the Presidential Candidate of Peoples Democratic Party PDP in 2019, Atiku Abubakar might be contesting for 2023 Presidential Race. The reason is that Atiku has been reaching out to his loyalists in the Party ahead 2023 Presidential race.

However, Atiku might not be given the Presidential ticket in the Party due to some reasons. One of the reasons is that the Party Leaders challenged Atiku that he abandoned the Party, immediately after the 2019 Presidential race but he may support another Presidential Candidate in 2023. Also, There are some APC Presidential Aspirants that have cordial relationship with Atiku and they may get his support, if Atiku decide not to contest 2023 Presidential race.

One of the PDP Presidential Aspirants that may get the support of Atiku in 2023 Presidential race is the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress APC and the former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Tinubu and Atiku had been together during Late Chief MKO Abiola's Struggle. Tinubu and Atiku worked for Chief MKO Abiola to become President.

It should be recalled that Atiku contested for Presidential race in 2007 under the Platform of Action Congress AC against Late President Umar Yar'adua of the PDP and Tinubu supported him with every resources in his Capacity. Though Atiku failed but the cordial relationship between them can't be compared to that of anyone. Therefore, Atiku may likely support Tinubu, If he decides not to contest Presidential race in 2023. Aside Politics, Both Atiku and Tinubu are bosom friends and it won't cost Atiku anything to support Tinubu's Presidential Ambition.Another PDP Presidential Aspirant that may likely get the support of Atiku in 2023 Presidential race is Gbenga Daniel. It should be recalled that Gbenga Daniel was the former Governor of Ogun State and the Director General of Atiku's Presidential Campaign Organization in 2019 Presidential race. Gbenga Daniel recently dumped the Peoples Democratic Party PDP for the All Progressives Congress APC.

The Little time Gbenga Daniel spent together with Atiku is enough for him to get Atiku's support, if Daniel Decides to contest Presidential race. Though, Gbenga Daniel has not declared his intention known to contest Presidential race but if he decides to contest Presidential race, Atiku may likely support his Presidential Ambition. The memory that Atiku shared together with both Tinubu and Otunba Gbenga Daniel will give them edge over others to get Atiku's support if they contest Presidential race.
