One Mistake Atiku Should Avoid Making If He Becomes The Presidential Candidate Of The PDP

General elections will be held in Nigeria on 18 February 2023 to elect the President, Vice President, House of Representatives, and Senate. The winners of the election will be inaugurated on 29 May 2023, the former date of Democracy Day.

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari won a second and final term in office in 2019 courtesy of deep support from the northern part of the country, where he got 77% of the 15m votes he polled.

Like Buhari, Atiku – a multimillionaire entrepreneur – is a northern Muslim and has had a long-time presidential ambition which dates back to 1992. Since then, he has contested for president on four more occasions. Although he is yet to declare his intention to run again in 2023, his close associates – and his gestures – say his eyes remain on Aso Rock, Nigeria’s seat of power.

As a politician who has ambitions, it is advisable for Atiku to avoid choosing an unqualified running mate. Atiku should assure the members of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) that he is for one Nigeria and not with those that want to break away from Nigeria.

Picking the right running mate is usually important for any presidential candidate. Mr Atiku should choose a running mate with impeccable integrity and excellent background.
