The leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) can consider two northern politicians from the party as the flag bearer of the opposition party in the forthcoming presidential election. Although there are demands from the southern governors concerning the issue of the zoning system of the country, the northerners are still pushing presidency in the year twenty twenty-three presidential election. In order to return to power in the year 2023, the opposition party can also consider using northerners as the flag bearer of the party.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members have been looking for a way to get back the lost mantle of leadership for a very long time, and it will be an unwise decision for the party to consider anybody apart from northerners as the flag bearer of the party. The northern part of the country produces most of the votes in every general election in Nigeria, and northerners usually vote massively for their kind. Now that the members of the ruling party have been projecting a southern politician in the person of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the flag bearer of the party, the opposition party can consider using a northern politician as the flag bearer of the party.

1. Atiku Abubakar

The first northern politician that the opposition party can consider as the flag bearer of the party is Atiku Abubakar. Atiku Abubakar is one of the strongest politicians currently in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). The members of the opposition party entrusted him with the party's ticket in the previous general election, but he lost the election due to some unavoidable circumstances that are also beyond his power.

Atiku Abubakar and his opponent, President Muhammadu Buhari, are from the northern part of the country. Because of that, it was so difficult for him to secure all the votes in the region. The two politicians shared most of the votes in the region. The members of the party should consider using Atiku Abubakar as the flag bearer of the party in the incoming presidential election.

2. Alhaji Rabiu Musa Kwankwanso

Apart from Atiku Abubakar, Kwankwanso is another powerful politician in the opposition party that should be considered for the presidency by the members of the party. Kwanzas has been part of northern politics for a very long time, and he would be able to deliver the northern part of the country for the opposition party. He also has a political movement called Kwankwassiya in Kano. The political movement will be useful for the party. It will serve as the root of the party's campaign rallies.
