As the the 2023 Presidential race is approaching, Candidates from different Parties have showing interest to contest for the Position of President. It should be recalled that The Present Administration under President Muhammadu Buhari won the last Presidential election with all hands on desk but the Southwest Played a very important roles in the Polls. Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been a major Pivotal to President Muhammadu Buhari success both in 2015 and in 2019 Presidential Polls.
Tinubu has played a vital roles in bringing President Muhammadu Buhari to the limelight Politics in the Southwest. This the payback time for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to assume the Position of President. Though the All Progressives Congress APC Leaders has made it known that the Party will zoned her Presidential ticket to the south which may likely be Southwest. All the Three Geopolitical zones in the south is entitled to the Presidency if zoned to the south but the Southwest may likely get the Presidential ticket due to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his Position in the Party.
Though, not all Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has shown the interest bro contest the 2023 Presidential Polls, the Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi has also been reported to show the interest making both Tinubu and Fayemi contesting the Presidential Polls but Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is having more Edge over Kayode Fayemi some other candidates that will still show interest in the nearest future. The reason is that Tinubu has paid his dues long ago. Tinubu having more edges over other candidates within and outside the Party.
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will be considered first among other Presidential candidates in the Party. The likes of Fayemi and other candidates that still show up the interest may not have the chance Tinubu will have during the Primary Election to pick the Presidential candidate for the Party. Tinubu has done well in the party by supporting President Muhammadu Buhari to become the President of the country.
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will continue relevant in the Party in as much he still maintain his stands in the Party. Though some of the Party Leaders in the north may be interested in Tinubu but the truth of the matter is that Tinubu will have more edge than other candidates in the Party. The Party Leaders in the north and some of the Party leaders in the south may not want Tinubu to emerge as the Presidential candidate in the Party while some will want him.
See The Two Northern States Tinubu May Have More Edges Ahead 2023 Presidential Polls.
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu may not have more edge in the entire north but it's very sure that Tinubu will get bulk votes in some of the Northern States most especially where his (Tinubu) Loyalists are. Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is an ordained candidate among the Presidential candidates in the All Progressives Congress APC. Though some of the All Progressives Congress APC Leaders may not support Tinubu but it's very obvious that Tinubu will get more votes in some of the northern States. Tinubu will have more edge over other Presidential candidates both within and outside the Party.
The first state in the north where Tinubu will have edge over other candidates is the Bauchi state. There are several indications that Tinubu's running mate may come from the Bauchi state. Bauchi state is the state of the Former National House of Assembly Speaker, Rt. Hon. Yakub Dogara. Yakub Dogara may likely be the running mate to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the forthcoming election.
Infact, it was reliably gathered that this was the main reason Dogara defected back to the Rulling All Progressives Congress APC from the Peoples Democratic party PDP. It should be recalled that Yakub Dogara defected from the All Progressives Congress APC to the Peoples Democratic party few months to the 2019 Presidential Polls but he returned back to the Party, APC few months ago. People are of the opinions that the main reason he returned back to the party was as a result of his Ambition as vice to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Therefore, Tinubu won't have any problem in Bauchi state if Dogara should be given the position of running mate with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The second state that will embrace Tinubu in the North, is Yobe state. Yobe state is where the Present Senate President, Senator Ahmed Lawan hailed from. Ahmed Lawan and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu are very close friends. Ahmed Lawan has been a faithful follower to Tinubu and has also been a good leader to Ahmed Lawan. Tinubu's contributions to how he became the Senate President can't be overemphasized and can't be compared to anyother Party members and Leaders. Therefore, Tinubu won't have any problem in Yobe state too. These are the two nothern States, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu Won't have problems if given the Presidential mandate in 2023 Presidential Polls.
