Opinion: Why PDP May Zone The Presidential Ticket To The North In 2023 Presidential Polls

The 2018 Presidential Polls favoured the Northern Part of the country. The two known Political Parties in the country, Picked the Presidential candidate from the north. It should be recalled that the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakr was from the north and the All Progressives Congress APC, President Muhammadu Buhari was also from the north. President Muhammadu Buhari who was the Presidential candidate of the APC won the Presidential Polls.

Meanwhile, The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Atiku Abubakr has enjoyed the total support from the south. Atiku won the last Presidential election in all the States from the Southsouth, Southwest and southeast except Osun state. The Electorates from the southern Part of the country, embraced the emergence of Atiku Abubakr as the Presidential candidate of the Party and they all voted for him, wholeheartedly. Atiku still maintains his Popularity in the south, up till today.

Atiku Abubakr has made the Peoples Democratic Party PDP Popular in the South. Though, the PDP has a very good Political structure in the South. Anyother Political Party has not ruled the Southsouth and the southeast since the inception of Democracy in 1999. But Atiku made the Party more Popular in the south. Atiku Abubakr will continue maintains his Popularity in the South, even if the Party refuse to give him the Presidential ticket in 2023.

Recently, The Party made it known to the Public that, the Party may likely pick Atiku Abubakr or the former Senate President, Bukola Saraki. If any of these candidates is given the Presidential ticket, it means that the Party is returning the Presidential ticket to the north ahead the 2023 Presidential Polls. Though the Presidential ticket will be thrown open to every Members of the Party ahead the 2023 Presidential Polls, but the Party may favour the north and give the Presidential ticket to the zone.

The last Presidential Polls was keenly between the All Progressives Congress APC and the Peoples Democratic Party PDP in the country. The PDP is having huge edge in the Southern Part of the country ahead the All Progressives Congress APC. Though, Things might change before the 2023 Presidential Polls but presently, the PDP is having edge in Southsouth and the southeast.

Why PDP May Return The Presidential Ticket To The North In 2023 Presidential Polls

The Peoples Democratic Party PDP May Return The Presidential Ticket to the North in 2023 Presidential Polls. The reason is that the Party has already gained the ground in the south. The Party may want to focus the North to win the 2023 Presidential Polls. Some States in the north used to determine the faith of any Presidential candidate. They always determine the Party that is going to win the Presidential Election in the country.

The states like Kano, Kaduna, Borno, Kastina and Sokoto States will determine the Party that will win the Presidential Election. But the Peoples Democratic Party PDP didn't win Presidential Election in these States. The Peoples Democratic Party PDP controls all the States in the Southsouth and southeast. The PDP Presidential candidate won all the States in the south. It is only the Osun state from the southwest the Party lost to the All Progressives Congress APC during the Presidential Polls. All other States were won by the PDP in the south.

The reason why the PDP will need to focus on the north is that, the Party will be able to win Most Mega states in the north in the forthcoming Presidential Polls. It doesn't matter if the PDP could not get much votes from the south, this time around. President Muhammadu Buhari was able to win the last Presidential election because he was able to win those Mega States in the north in the last Presidential Polls. Therefore, the PDP May win the next Presidential Polls, if the Party returns the Presidential ticket to the North.

This may be the reason, why the Party want to return the Presidential ticket to the north. What the Party needs to do, is to look for a credible Presidential candidate between Atiku Abubakr or Bukola Saraki and give the Presidential ticket to one of them ahead the 2023 Presidential Polls. Atiku or Saraki will make good and credible Presidential candidate ahead 2023 Presidential Polls.
