The 2023 presidential elections is going to be one of the most tightly contested polls in recent years.
Aside from the fact that the power of incumbency is not going to be in play, Nigerians are fed up with the two major political parties in the county.
As you know, the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) and the main opposition Peoples ‘ Democratic Party (PDP) have led Nigeria for the past 21 years with little or nothing to show for it.
For Nigerians to now have confidence in the system, there is an urgent need for the next president to be picked based on performance and not on party affiliation.
Looking closely at the current crop of politicians, two governors have performed credibly well and deserve to contest for the 2023 presidential elections.
The governor of Kaduna State has performed reasonably well when it comes to infrastructural development and health care provision. His urban renewal drive is regarded as the best among the 36 states of the federation. If the next president is to be picked based on performance then Mallam Nasir El-Rufai will top that list.
Another governor that has performed reasonably well since assuming office is Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state. The first-term state executive has performed beyond expectations in the area of urban renewal, health care, and human management, which made him one of the most popular governors in Nigeria today. If the opportunity arises, Gov. Makinde would be in the best position to replicate his achievements in Oyo state at the national level.
