Ahead of the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria, the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is working to reclaim Nigeria's seat of power.

PDP who had been ruling Nigeria since the return of democracy in 1999 lost the presidential election to the ruling All Progressives, APC, in 2015.
In less than two years to the presidential election, the most discussed issue within the main opposition party is the zone that will fly the flag of the party.

Members of the party from the South-East had argued that the PDP presidential ticket should be zoned to the south for them to produce Nigeria's President for the first time after the return of democracy in 1999.
However, available indicators have shown that the main opposition party may not zone its presidential ticket to the South-East.
One Reason Why Tambuwal And Wike Joint Presidential Ticket May Be Possible In 2023
A report by Daily Trust showed that PDP is set to zone its 2023 presidential ticket to northern Nigeria.
One of the northern influential politicians tipped to fly the flag of PDP in the 2023 presidential ticket, Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, may likely achieve his aim.
This move by PDP to zone its presidential ticket to the north may likely make the dream of the joint presidential ticket of Governor Aminu Tambuwal and Governor Nyesom Wike a reality in 2023.

The move by the Peoples Democratic Party to zone its presidential ticket to the north is now an opportunity for Governor Tambuwal to achieve his presidential ambition.
Recall that Tambuwal contested the 2019 PDP presidential primaries but lost to former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar.

As PDP set to zone its ticket to the north, Tambuwal may likely declare his ambition for the 2023 presidential election in the country.
Tambuwal and Wike have a good relationship, this may likely influence the Tambuwal and Wike joint presidential ticket to fly the flag of the main opposition party in the 2023 presidential election.

Wike is an influential politician in the south who has been able to win the love and acceptance of the people in the south because of his developmental projects in Rivers State.
This may likely help to influence the joint presidential ticket in 2022 because Governor Wike has the political strength to win the south for PDP.
