The former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, may encounter a problem with the members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) ahead of the upcoming presidential election that has been scheduled to hold in the year 2023. Some people of the party have started endorsing Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the flag bearer of the party, and it seems he has no clear opponent from the southern and northern parts of the country currently.

Despite the fact that Tinubu has no clear opponent in the party currently, he may also face a problem concerning his presidential ambitions. Northerners are trying to produce the next president of the country during the upcoming general election. When southern governors held a meeting in Lagos State concerning the issue of the upcoming general election, they unanimously agreed to produce the next president of the country, but northern leaders rejected it.

The Northern Governors' Forum (NGF) rejected this request and claimed that they were also entitled to produce the next president of the country. The leaders of the All Progressive Congress (APC) may conclude to throw the position of the flag bearer of the party to both the southern and northern parts of the country at the same time to promote equity and fairness in the party.

Tinubu may face a problem if the northern politicians refuse to go by the zoning system as it happened in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday. The caretaker committee of the party, Mai Mala Buni has already stated that the party may use a consensus candidate in the upcoming presidential election. The northern politicians may stand against Tinubu in the upcoming presidential election because they also want to produce the flag bearer of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the year 2023 presidential election.
