5 Southerners That The Northern Politicians Can Endorse As President in 2023

Amidst uncertainty over the zone of the Peoples Democratic Party 2023 presidential ticket, some governors elected on the platform of the party, former Vice-president Atiku Abubakar, former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Aminu Tambuwal ( Sokoto State Governor) and Bala Mohammed ( Bauchi State Governor) are all politicians who are interested in the 2023 PDP presidential ticket.

In the aftermath of the zoning of chairmanship to the north and the emergence of Dr. Nyorchia Ayu, former Senate President as the National Chairman of the PDP, Atiku and others are awaiting the decision of the National Executive Council in the forthcoming national convention of the party come October 30 and 31, 2021 whether the Presidential ticket will be zoned to the South or thrown open the presidential primary to all interested aspirants.

Already, the ruling All Progressives Congress has made its position known to Nigerians that it has zoned the presidential ticket of the party to the South.

However, if it happens that the ticket is finally zoned to the Southern Nigeria by the two leading political parties in Nigeria, these are the candidates that can be endorsed by politicians from the North.

1. Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu

The majority of people from Northern Nigeria believe that when the Presidency is zoned to the southern part of the country, there is this single person that has the capability, capability and charisma to take Nigeria to the promise land.

They believe that Tinubu has national appeal and technical know- how, management skills to lead and united Nigeria based on his landmark achievement as Lagos State Governor and as the national leader of APC with voluminous contribution to success of the Buhari's administration.

2. Professor Yemi Osinbajo

The second politician that the northerners can support is the current Vice-president of Nigeria, Proff.Yemi Osinbajo.

Osinbajo has been ruling the country with President Muhammadu Buhari since six years. Osinbajo may enjoy the support of the northern politicians because of the support he has been given to President Buhari for six years. They believe he has learnt from him and because he is a professor who knows what he's doing.

Dr. Goodluck Jonathan

Another person is Dr. Goodluck Jonathan. The northern politicians will gladly endorse his candidacy for 2023 presidential ticket because he is an experienced person, he had ruled Nigeria before and he has served under former late president, Umar Musa Yar'Adua.

The northern politicians are also aware that he had only one term of four years to spend in office according to the Constitution as the president. The Northeners will want Jonathan because power will go back to the north in 2027 when he completes his 4 years.

4. Peter Gregory Obi

Northeners can also endorse Peter Obi as the main flag bearer of the PDP in the oncoming presidential election.

Peter Obi is the vice presidential candidate in the 2019 Nigerian general election along side Atiku Abubakar.

Besides, he will use the experience he gathered as the former governor of Anambra State if he's endorsed by the northern politicians.
