What Bola Tinubu Can Do As The Northern Elders Forum Boasts Of Their Voting Strength Ahead 2023

Bola Tinubu happens to be one of the strongest politicians that has higher possibility of contesting for presidency ahead 2023 election as rumor has it. Although, he is yet to make any public declaration to make the claim affirmative, and it is not something that can be discarded as he has also been doing some things to justify the action. However, a report from Punch News made it known that the Northern Elders Forum claims that the North has the highest votes and they won't accept second position in 2023. This was disclosed by the director of publicity and advocacy of the forum, Dr Hakeem Baba - Ahmad, he further proclaims that the North is on the process of rebuilding itself and it's not prepared to play second fiddle in a nation where it clearly enjoys numerical strength. 

Meanwhile, the director made the above statement while delivering a keynote address at the maiden Maitama Sule lecture series organized by the students wing of the coalition of Northern groups held at Ahamdu Bello university, Zaria on saturday, this is in accordance with the report from Punch News cited above. He also said that the North will lead Nigeria the way they had been leading before whether they are contesting for President or Vice President, he proceeded and said that they will lead Nigeria and they have the majority of the voters. Although, one cannot dispute the fact that the North truly has voting strength due to their number, and this is part of the reason why Bola Tinubu should be swift in his action to see how he can have the Northern support on his side.

What Bola Tinubu can do;

You will agree with me that the game of politics is a game of number, and victory of every elections usually favours those who have the majority vote, hence this is something that Bola Tinubu should capitalize on and see how he can use it to add to his existing capacity. The forum also said they will not accept second position, this might be due to their numerical capacity. Bola Tinubu can make himself their anointed candidate by being loyal to the elders of the forum, if he gets successful in being in the Northern circle, it is such that will help him to fly his candidature better ahead the upcoming general election.

If Bola Tinubu does not want things to fall apart for him politically, it is expected of him to see how he can have the North on his side especially now that the region said that they won't accept second position in the year 2023, the fact that Bola Tinubu happens to be a politician from the South western part of the country is such that cannot be discarded, it will also be a plus to him of he can have the support of the North, and this can be achieved with consideration to the above stated point.
