What Tinubu Can Do As NGF Says It's Unconstitutional For The South To Insist On Producing Presidency

The Northern Governors Forum (NGF) reportedly made it known that the South insistence on producing the next President of Nigeria contradicts the provision of the Nigerian constitution, this was stated by the NGF after their meeting in Kaduna on Monday. However, a report from Daily Post News further unveils that a communique signed by the governor of Plateau state, Simon Lalong unveils that the position of their colleagues in the South is condemnable as the Southern governors have consistently insisted that power must shift to the region. 

Lalong continued in his statement and said that the Forum observed that some Northern state governors had earlier expressed views for a power shift to three geopolitical zones in the South with a view to promoting unity and peace in the nation, hence notwithstanding their comments, the NGF unanimously condemns the statement by the Southern governors forum which says that presidency must go to the South, NGF also made it known that the statement of the Southern governors forum is equally contradictory with the provision of the constitution of the Federal republic of Nigeria. Meanwhile, this article will be discussing what Bola Tinubu can do so as to aid his ambition as he happens to be a politician from the South and also a potential presidential aspirant come 2023 should he eventually contest. You will agree with me that the recent statement from the Northern Governors Forum above is an unfavourable one to the stake of Bola Tinubu as his region will be affected with their decision.

What Bola Tinubu can do;

Firstly, the game of politics is all about planning and strategies, although Bola Tinubu is yet to make any public declaration regarding his aspiration, and it's not a rumor that can be neglected because his actions has been justifying the course to some extent, hence Bola Tinubu should see how he can have most of the Southern politicians on his side so that his personality can be considered during slating in case he later decides to contest. You will agree with me that the game of politics is also about number, and if Bola Tinubu can ensure that he has reasonable percentage of the Southern politicians on his side, it is such that will help his agenda in return and also make him stand tall during slating.

Secondly, Bola Tinubu should not only limit his believers to the South alone, it will be wise of him to spread his capacity to the Northern politicians also, this will enable him to break their force to some extent and in return have the agenda of the Northern Governors Forum's frustrated. Bola Tinubu can have this adopted should he later decides to contest come 2023, as it is such that will equally aid his ambition during that time.

For things not to fall apart for Bola Tinubu ahead 2023, he is expected to be swift and diplomatic in his actions if at all he eventually choose to contest for presidency. However, the upcoming general election is also an opportunity for him to test the capacity that he had built overtime, and consideration to the above stated points is such that can aid him in capacity building and also give him an edge in the southern and northern region respectively, this will in return help him in his marketability when he eventually make up his mind to fly his agenda come 2023.
