OPINION: Two Possible Reasons Why Saraki May Consider Support For Abdulrahman As Kwara Gov In 2023

It's quite obvious to all that Bukola Saraki and Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq are not presently on the same page politically, and this is traceable to the political occurrence that happened between the duo in Kwara state gubernatorial struggle during 2019 election. However, you will agree with me that there is no permanent friend or enemy in politics, the only thing that always remains permanent is interest. We all know that Bukola Saraki is a very strong politician in Kwara state since the inception of democracy, but political tragedy befell him in the last election which was championed by Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq and APC members.

As promising politicians, both Bukola Saraki and Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq still have many reasons to work together due to the fact the duo are from the same state, which is Kwara. You will recall that Bukola Saraki was in control of the state for almost 16 years, he always ensures the sustenance of his party which is PDP until the year 2019. Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq on the other hand changed the narrative in the last election and the duo had a drag in power tussle. Meanwhile, with regards to the upcoming general election, it's quite logical that the two of them still needs each other in terms of sustainability both at local and national level. 

Here are the two reasons why Bukola Saraki may consider support for Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq as Kwara governor in 2023;

- State capacity: the fact that Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq remains the incumbent governor of Kwara state is indisputable. This is to say that he still have the control of the state authority and resources within his capacity. Bukola Saraki on the other hand as a promising politician will also needs the back up of his state governor in his subsequent dealings. Hence, he may choose to consider Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq as Kwara governor in 2023 to aid his return, this will in return enable him to be loyal to Bukola Saraki's submission and they will be able to work together at the national level to achieve a common interest.

- Support from APC: We all know that Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq is a very strong stakeholder in APC which happens to be the ruling party in Nigeria as at today. His capacity is such that Bukola Saraki might benefit from, and the best way he can do that is to consider his aspiration as Kwara governor in 2023. This will further make Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq gather believers for him at APC, and also get them activated for national dealings ahead 2023 election.

Kwara state gubernatorial election in the year 2019 happens to be one of the most interesting elections for that particular year. It was a battle between Bukola Saraki and Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq. However, 2023 election is another opportunity for the narrative to be changed. This is to say the fact that the duo were not on the same page in the year 2019 doesn't mean that they can't be on the same page ahead 2023 election. The support of Bukola Saraki to Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq will in return be a mutual benefit for the two politicians, and there are much possibilities that Bukola Saraki firstly extends the hands of friendship to Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq by considering support for him as Kwara governor in 2023.
