2023 Presidential Election: Why PDP Should Consider An Igbo Politican

There are several indications that the All Progressive Congress (APC) will make use of a Southwestern Politician as its candidate in the year 2023 as the pioneer of the party, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has been showing interest continuously on being the presidential candidate of the party in the year 2023.

The All Progressive Congress Party dominate all the Southwestern states except for Oyo which is controlled by Engineer Seyi Makinde of the People's Democratic Party. The rest: Lagos, Ogun, Ekiti, Ondo, and Osun are controlled by the APC.

Besides, the party was formed by coming together of some Southwestern ( ACN) and Northern Political Parties ( APP, ANPP and CPC) in the year 2015. President Muhammadu Buhari has been ruling for the Northern People which necessarily implies that the APC will consider a Southwestern Politician as its candidate. 

Since there is no chance in the APC, the Igbos will only look us to the PDP as they did in the year 2019. There are indications that Igbos will support those candidates powerfully to make their dream an achieved one.

Mr Peter Obi was the former Governor of the Anambra State. He simultaneously ran with Atiku Abubakar in the year 2019 as the Vice President of the country. He was supported massively by the Igbos then in the year 2019.

It is apparently clear that the Igbos will support him also if is chosen by the PDP. He is also the leader of the PDP members in the Southeastern states. He will be supported in the Southeastern states.

Southwestern states are nominated by the APC members which are loyalists to Tinubu. It would be a nice idea to pick a candidate from eastern part of the country.
