Olusegun Obasanjo is a prominent member of the opposition party who will want to do anything to help the party to move forward progressively. The party has been talking about the choice of a candidate that will lead the party to victory in the year twenty twenty-three presidential election, but there has been not been a good outcome. Obasanjo can use his knowledge and experience about national elections to elect and endorse any of these three politicians in the year twenty twenty-three presidential election.

The first person that Obasanjo will like to recommend if he wants to recommend is Atiku Abubakar. The fact that both Olusegun Obasanjo and Atiku Abubakar worked together for eight years at the beginning of the fourth republic will prompt Olusegun Obasanjo to recommend and endorse him. They worked together, and Obasanjo will have known his ability and capacity when it comes to national elections.

Apart from that, Atiku Abubakar also ran against President Muhammadu Buhari in the last presidential election. He was the flag bearer of the party, but he couldn't find it easy to defeat the ruling party because of some factors that are really beyond his power. The opposition party will need Atiku Abubakar again in the subsequent election, and Obasanjo should recommend him.

2. Peter Obi

The second politician that Olusegun Obasanjo should recommend is Peter Obi from the southern part of the country. Obasanjo is a tactical politician who knows how things are going at the party, and they should go. The southern governors have demanded that the next president of the country should come from the southern part of Nigeria. For them not to be offended, Olusegun Obasanjo should respect their interest by endorsing Peter Obi in the next presidential election.

Peter Obi is not a novice whenever it comes to national elections. He ran alongside Atiku Abubakar in the last presidential election. Although they were defeated by the stronger faction of the All Progressive Congress (APC). Obasanjo should also consider endorsing Peter Obi.

3. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso

Kwankwanso is the key politician that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has in the northern part of the country. Kwankwanso is a politician with strategies, and he will use his knowledge about northern politics to help the opposition party. He ruled Kano State for eight years before he stepped aside from state politics. He knows how things are being done in the region. The party will need a northerner that is conversant with the ways things are done in the north. Obasanjo should recommend him.
