The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) can make use of two northern politicians in the upcoming presidential election instead of using Peter Obi as the flag bearer of the party. The party is seriously looking for ways to reclaim the lost mantle of leadership in the Aso Rock Villa by using a presidential candidate that can outsmart others. In regard to this outcry, members of the party have started projecting Mr Peter Obi from Anambra State to be the next flag bearer of the party.

Peter Obi is an experienced politician who is capable of leading the party to victory in the year 2023 presidential election, but it will be an unwise decision from the leadership of the party to make use of Peter Obi as the next flag bearer of the party. The logic behind the fact that northern politicians will be preferable for the members of the party to use than southerners is that northerners are capable of producing more votes in every general election than in the southern part of the country.

The voting strength of the people in the northern part of the country is what should be driving the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). The ruling party has gone many miles ahead of the opposition party, and it will be difficult for a southern politician to defeat a northerner in the upcoming presidential election. In regard to this, the party can make use of two northern politicians that can serve as the flag bearer of the party in the upcoming presidential election instead of Peter Obi.

1. Atiku Abubakar

The first northern politician that the opposition party can consider as the presidential candidate of the party in the next presidential election is Atiku Abubakar. Atiku Abubakar is one of the popular faces in the northern part of the party when it comes to politics and electioneering processes. He has been appearing in political posters for a very long time. In the previous presidential election, he was the flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) alongside Peter Obi.

Due to some unavoidable factors, Atiku Abubakar lost the year 2019 presidential election alongside Peter Obi. In this coming general election, it will be of help for the leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to consider Atiku Abubakar as the flag bearer of the party because he is a northerner. He will be able to gather most of the votes in the region than anybody else.

2. Alhaji Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso

Kwankwaso is a top northern politician in Kano State. He is capable of leading the opposition party to victory in the upcoming presidential election that has been scheduled to hold in the year 2023. Kwankwaso has a political movement that he controls, and he can make use of the group to dwindle the power of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Kano State and other neighbouring states in the northern part of the country. PDP should field either Atiku or Peter Obi in the next presidential election.
