One Decision PDP Can Make That May Affect Tinubu's Presidential Ambition In 2023

It is no more news 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. It should be recalled that APC may likely zone 2023 Presidential ticket to the South and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu might be the Leading Presidential Aspirant if he decides to contest Presidential race.

Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party PDP is the only opposition Party that can challenge Tinubu in 2023 Presidential race and the PDP can only achieve that, through restructuring of the Party. The PDP can only defeat Tinubu, if the Party zone the Presidential ticket to the north and give to the credible Presidential Aspirant. The Likes of Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar or any other Candidate from the North is best fit to compete with Tinubu, if the APC Leaders could Presidency to the South and give it to Tinubu in 2023.

It should be recalled that recently, PDP Governors deliberated on the zoning system of the Party and they decided to zone the Position of National Chairman of the Party to the North and this shows that the Presidency may not be zoned to the North again. If the Presidential ticket could not be zone to the North, It means the Northerners will Produce large number of votes the way they used to produce it. If Tinubu could be given the Presidential ticket under the Platform of APC and the PDP didn't Pick their Presidential Candidate from the North, Tinubu will gain ground in the North.

It should be recalled that the Governor of Kano State, Governor Abdullah Ganduje and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu are best of friend and there is every assurance that Governor Ganduje will support Tinubu's Presidential Ambition. Meanwhile, Kano State is one of the biggest State in the North that used to determine the faith of any Political Party whose its Presidential Candidate would win any Presidential Election.

Therefore, If the PDP Leaders Picks her Presidential Candidate from the North, it may affect Tinubu's Presidential ambition in 2023 but failure to Pick Presidential Candidate from the North will give him edge over other Presidential Candidates. Another Point is that the Presidential Candidate that will be given the Ticket should either be Aminu Tambuwal, Atiku Abubakar or Rabiu Kwankwaso. The reason is that these Presidential Aspirants are grassroot Politicians from the north and they are the Candidates who can challenge Tinubu's Presidential ambition.
