There have been several speculations that the Former Governor of Lagos State and the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu might be contesting 2023 Presidential race. Tinubu's loyalists have been reaching out to the Leaders of the Party over his Presidential Ambition. It should be recalled that Tinubu is on medical vacation to London over his health challenges.
Countless Number of APC Leaders had visited Tinubu in London to know his status. It was President Muhammadu and the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwolu that first visited Tinubu in London. Some Northern APC Leaders had also visited Tinubu and it was also gathered that one Honourable Member of the Federal House of Assembly, addressed Tinubu as Mr President when he visited him. This is an indication that Tinubu is strategizing to achieve his Presidential Ambition, despite the fact that he is not in Nigeria.
However, Tinubu needs capable Leader from the North that will be Paired with him to contest Presidential race in 2023, If he decides to contest Presidential race. One of the APC Leaders that best fit to be Paired with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as Vice Presidential Candidate is the former Honourable Speaker of the Federal House of Assembly, Rt. Honourable Yakubu Dogara. Tinubu and Dogara will be a credible Presidential Candidate in 2023, if the Party Leaders could give the Presidential ticket to them.
There was a time Tinubu and Dogara's Posters was spotted in the North. It should be recalled that Dogara dumped the Peoples Democratic Party PDP for APC. if Tinubu could be given the Presidential Ticket, Dogara is best fit as his running mate in 2023 Presidential race. Therefore, the Leaders of the Party should not make mistakes to Pick wrong Presidential Candidate and Vice President in 2023.
Another APC Leader that best fits as Running mate to Tinubu is the Secretary to the Federal Government, Boss Mustapha. Boss Mustapha will also be a credible Vice President to Tinubu, if the Party Leaders can give Presidential Ticket to him. It should be recalled that Tinubu is a Southern Muslim while while Boss Mustapha is Northern Christian. The reason is that If Northern Muslim should be Picked as Tinubu's running mate, APC might not be able to win Presidential race in 2023. But if the Presidential Candidate should be Muslim and the Vice Presidential Candidate is Christian, Electorates will be able to vote for APC especially in the North.
