Tinubu Amass 1 Million Supporters For 2023 Presidency - Can He Win?

Daily Trust reports that a political lobby calling on the All Progressives Congress (APC) statesman , Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to contest the 2023 presidential election has hit a million followers. 

The support group styled as Tinubu 2023 Not Negotiable (TNN) recently celebrated its first anniversary by inaugurating its leadership within the diaspora and also admitting more members. This support is coming amidst tons of ethnic undercurrents playing call at preparation for the 2023 presidency. 

Though Tinubu had last month said that he wasn't getting to run presidency in 2023 during the leadership crisis that quaked the APC, it's amazing that there are pressure groups still throwing their support for him. 

According to Daily Trust, the founding father of TNN Hon. Kunle Okunola said that the group has been launched in 13 countries, including France, the uk , and a few African countries all working to form the 2023 project of Asiwaju a reality.

Tinubu was the topic of mockery last month when president Buhari backed the chairmanship of Giadom in APC. That Adams Oshiomole's suspension wasn't reversed, to several people like Femi Fani Kayode, it meant that Tinubu was finished . It meant that Tinubu's purported presidential desire met a overtime .

But can Tinubu win in 2023 going by the 1 million people that have supposedly joined the TNN? If 1 million people supporting Tinubu three years to election is anything to travel by, one would assume that he does stand a really good chance at becoming president should he plan to run.

But then, people don't just become president in Nigeria solely on the support of a lobby . As a matter of fact, 2023 though seemingly distant promises to be arguably one among the foremost interesting elections within the history of Nigerian politics for several reasons.

First off, all three major tribes are jostling for presidency in 2023. Though power is currently within the north, northern politicians have made no pretensions on they eager to retain power in 2023. Igbo sociocultural groups like Ohaneaze also are saying that they need to produce subsequent president because they need been marginalised for much too long. The Yorubas also are not missing within the party. 

Given these undercurrents, what are the probabilities that the APC would field Tinubu which he would win the election in 2023? there's little question that Tinubu himself may be a political heavyweight, especially within the Southwest. However, which will be just his limitation. How influential is Tinubu in other regions? We guess Tinubu would need to decide first to contest before he finds out.
