What is the way to make PDP lose?
Makinde revealed that the only way to stop PDP from winning the 2023 presidential election is by causing division in the party. According to a report by Sahara Reporters, Makinde disclosed that Governors and other leaders of the PDP understand the importance of party unity which can help them win the 2023 presidential election. To this end, they are doing everything within their power to ensure that they remain united and not divided. This is because if they head to the 2023 presidential election as a united family, they are hopeful of winning it.

Well, Makinde said this openly to encourage his party leaders and other members of the PDP on the need to be united. But, he made this revelation openly. Unknowingly, Makinde has just revealed what the opponents of PDP can use against the party. Currently, PDP is still battling with leadership crisis as the embattled National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus, is fighting to return to his office. Secondus refused to withdraw his case in court against the PDP. He is also praying the court to stop the PDP's national convention scheduled to hold on October 30th and 31st, 2021. This convention is important to PDP's unity and survival as a party. Secondus and his loyalists are fighting back after alleging that some forces within PDP removed him illegally to hijack the party.

Since Makinde revealed that only division can stop PDP from winning, the political rivals of the party may use this to their own advantage. In politics, political opponents can go the extra miles to do things that will weaken their major rival. In Nigeria today, PDP is the only party that can challenge the ruling party. It is the only party that has the number, the people, the structures and what it takes to put up a strong fight against the ruling party with a view to winning the presidential election. Since there are cracks and other crisis in the PDP, Makinde should not have openly revealed the only way to stop PDP from winning as this may be used against them by their major rivals.
