The emergence of the former Senate President, Iyorchia Ayu as the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP may have brightened the chance of Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal to clinch the Presidential ticket of the Party, in 2023.
It should be recalled that following the zoning system of the Party, that the Position of National Chairman of the Party should be zoned to the North, the Leaders of the Party, micro-zoned the National Chairman to the North Central and Ayu emerged as Chairman of the Party, through Consensus.
However, Ayu's emergence as National chairman of the Party help Governor Tambuwal of Sokoto State to become the Presidential Candidate of the Party. Ayu emerged as the National Chairman of the Party, with the support of the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom.
Meanwhile, there is good rapport between Governor Samuel Ortom, Tambuwal and the Governor of Rivers State, Governor Nyesom Wike. Though, Governor Nysom Wike and Samuel Ortom are more cordial and Ayu was able to emerge as consensus Chairman because Governor Wike and other PDP Governors supported him.
Meanwhile, it was gathered that Governor Wike might be working for Tambuwal to clinch the Presidential ticket of the Party because of their relationship. As a result of this, Governor Tambuwal may emerge as Presidential Candidate of the Party.
It should be recalled that Tambuwal is the Chairman of PDP Governor's forum and he may use his Position to influence PDP Presidential ticket in 2023. Meanwhile, the Committee led by Governor Ugwuanyi and PDP Governors deliberated on the zoning system of the Party and made Presidency open to all Presidential aspirants of the Party but Tambuwal may emerge as Presidential Candidate of the Party.
Meanwhile, Micro-zoning will favour both Atiku and Tambuwal but Tambuwal stands a better chance of clinching the Presidential Ticket, due to the kind of relationship he has with Governor Wike and Ortom, because Ayu is Ortom's Candidate and he will work for the emergence of Tambuwal as Presidential Candidate of the Party.
