Opinion: Why Northern Leaders May Likely Produce Chairman And Presidential Candidate For PDP In 2023

The leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the northern part of the country will likely produce the next presidential candidate and chairman for the opposition party in the year twenty twenty-three presidential election. It is a popular opinion for a political party to have its chairman and presidential candidate from different regions because of equal representation in government.

Contrary to this popular opinion, the leaders of the opposition party in the northern part of the country may likely break this convention by producing both the presidential candidate of the party and the chairman of the opposition party in the next election. The opposition party has been desperately looking for ways to get back the lost mantle of leadership in the country, and the visible way to get it back is through a norther candidate.

The strength of the people in the northern part of the country should be the first thing that will motivate the leaders of the party to choose its flag bearer from the northern part of the country. It will be difficult for a southern politician to lead the opposition party to victory because of the voting strength in the north. Most of the members of the party will prefer a northerner to be the flag bearer of the party in the year 2023 presidential election.

Recently, the leaders of the party have zoned the chairmanship position of the party to the northern part of the country after the suspension of Prince Uche Secondus. Uche Secondus was suspended due to the fact that he engaged in many anti-party activities. With that, the next chairman of the party will come directly from the northern part of the country.

The flag bearer of the party may also come from the northern part of the country because of the voting strength of the region. The leaders of the party will not want to consider a southerner as the flag bearer of the party because of the fact that a southern politician cannot pull the crowd as a northerner will do. The leaders of the party will consider using a northern politician as both the presidential candidate and the chairman of the party.
