Interestingly, as some group of individuals call for the zoning of the next presidential slots of the major political parties in Nigeria to the South, their counterparts in the North are also showing interest for the same position. In this article, we will look at about four states where, possibly, the next presidential candidates of the two major political parties in Nigeria, All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), may emerge from.

Firstly, Lagos State is one of the states in Nigeria that may produce the next presidential candidate of the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC).

Considering the fact that the former governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is being rumoured to be interested in becoming the successor of the incumbent President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, in 2023 Lagos State is, certainly, at a higher chances of producing the next presidential candidate of the ruling party, APC.

Secondly, with the looks of things and the recent political events that have taken place in the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sokoto State could be considered as another state that may produce the 2023 presidential candidate of the opposition party.

The rumoured interest of the incumbent Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Wasiri Tambuwal, to pick the presidential ticket of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may, considerably, place Sokoto State at a better position in the list of states that may produce the 2023 presidential candidate of PDP.

Thirdly, the chances of Ogun State to produce the next presidential candidate of the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC), may not be underrated.

There are media reports that some pressure groups are calling on the vice president, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, to vie for the presidential ticket of the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC), in 2023. Considering the dynamism of politics, the chances of Professor Yemi Osinbajo to pick the presidential ticket of APC may not be, totally, ignored.

Fourth, Adamawa State is surely at a better position to produce the next presidential candidate of the main opposition party in Nigeria, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Considerably, with the media reports that link former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, to be nursing ambition to pick the presidential ticket of PDP in 2023, Adamawa State could be rated above many states in the list of states that may produce the 2023 presidential candidate of the opposition party.
