2023: What PDP Should Consider Before Giving The Presidential Ticket To A Southerner.

It is no more news that the Peoples Democratic Party PDP has zoned the Position of National Chairman of the Party, to the North and the Former Senate President, Iyorchia Ayu has been Picked as National Chairman of the Party, through consensus.

However, the Leaders of the Party has made the Presidential ticket, open to all Presidential Aspirants of the Party, irrespective of the region or geopolitical zones, they might belong to.

This implies that the Southern Presidential Aspirant of the Party, may succeed, to get the Presidential ticket of the Party in 2023, because the northern region may both the National Chairman and at the same time Presidential ticket of the Party.

However, there are some things that Leaders of the Party, need to consider before giving Presidential ticket of the Party to Candidate from the South.

One of the things that Leaders of the Party should put into consideration, is the Voting strength of the Northerners. The voting strength of the Northerners should be Prioritise first, before anyother things.

It should be recalled that Northern votes determine the faith of any Presidential Candidate of the Party, in the country. President Muhammadu Buhari won 2019 Presidential Election, because of the large number of votes, he got in the north.

Meanwhile, The Presidential Candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar lost 2019 Presidential election, because he could not win some states, like Kano, Kaduna, Kastina Borno among others, in the North.

Therefore, PDP should think twice before giving Presidential ticket to the Southerners. No one is saying PDP should not give Presidential ticket to southerner but any Presidential Candidate, from the south that would clinch Presidential ticket of the party, must be popular in the north, so that Party will win 2023 Presidential race, without stress.

Another thing that PDP should Put into consideration is the fair sharing of the executives Members of the Party. Though, Leaders of the Party, has zoned the National Chairman of the party, to the North.

Meanwhile, The Leaders of the Party have done a wonderful job by Picking National Chairman of the party, Senator Iyorchia Ayu through consensus. However, The Leaders of the Party should intervene, into the crisis rocking the Party in some geopolitical zones, over the sharing of executives members of the Party.

Southwest happens to be one of the geopolitical zones, in the country facing such challenges. The issue of National Vice Chairman of the Party and Publicity secretary of the Party, is causing serious Problem in the zone.

If the PDP Leaders in the South could not maintain their internal crisis, the Southern Presidential Candidate that emerged may not win the 2023 Presidential election.

The PDP Leaders should look into the matter, so that it won't affect the chance of the Party, to win the forthcoming Presidential Election. These are two things that need to be considered by the Party, ahead of the 2023 Presidential election.
