Several factors determine the chance of a candidate winning an election and the choice of running mate a politician choose plays a vital role in determining his/her chance of winning the election.
After failing to achieve his dream in 2019 Kogi governorship election, available indicators have shown that Prince Muhammed Audu, the son of late Governor, Prince Abubakar Audu will make a return to win Kogi governorship election in 2023.
Muhammed Audu earned the love and supports of the people of Kogi State after he was unjustifiable disqualified from contesting the 2019 APC governorship primaries in the state. This will definitely help the son of the late Kogi Governor to poll sympathy votes but it may not sail him through to win the seat of power of Kogi State.
Muhammed Audu needs to choose a running mate that has political network, loved and accepted by the people of the state to poll supports for him to actualize his dream of ruling Kogi State.
The politician that can help Muhammed Audu actualize his dream of ruling Kogi State is the present Commissioner for Information and Communication in Kogi State, Kingsley Fanwo.
Kingsley Fanwo has been able to establish a strong political network in Kogi State especially in Kogi West which he used to deliver for APC in the last Kogi governorship election and Kogi West senatorial rerun election.
Fanwo is not only popular in Kogi West, he is popular in the three senatorial districts of Kogi State because of his several youth empowerment programmes.
Kingsley Fanwo is the man that can help Muhammed Audu achieve his aim of ruling Kogi State and fulfil his late father's dream of ruling Kogi for the second time. Fanwo will definitely poll supports and deliver Kogi West for Muhammed Audu.
There may be issues after the fallout from the APC governorship primaries for November 16, 2019 governorship election in Kogi State, realignment is key in politics and Muhammed Audu needs to start the negotiation to seal a deal with Kingsley Fanwo ahead of 2023 governorship election in the state.
The people of Kogi State will definitely love the combination of Muhammed Audu and Kingsley Fanwo governorship ticket.
