Opinion: 2 Things That Are Likely To Happen If APC Denies Tinubu The Party's Ticket Ahead Of 2023

One cannot be sure of the future because it has not happened but can easily predict what will happen in the future with what are happening presently. In the year twenty twenty three, the Incumbent President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari will have to leave the presidential office because he has completed his tenure as the president of the country.

Knowing that it is important for potential politicians to replace him after he leaves the office, a lot of interested aspirants have been moving around the country in order to get the ticket for the upcoming presidential election in their respective political party. The members of the the opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are looking forward to using Peter Obi from Anambra State as the next presidential candidate for the party while the ruling party on the other hand has not got its bearing concerning the issue of the next presidential election.

Anyone who knows how politics should be played in Nigeria will know that Chief Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the right person to take the the party's ( All Progressive Congress APC) ticket in the year twenty twenty three without any hindrances and further delineations. He is one of the founders of the party and he gave up on his Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) for the success of the party.

There are some instances where we have seen other candidates showing interest in what Tinubu should do in the party. For example, Governor Yaya Bello of Kogi State has appeared in a campaign poster which is about him going for the post of Presidency in the year twenty twenty three presidential election. He is in the same party with Tinubu and he shouldn't have tried that having known that Tinubu is going.

Apart from Yaya Bello of Kogi State, Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State has also shown interest in becoming the next number one citizen of the country. He has not shown any sign of reluctancy since he gives out his intention. His people in Ekiti State are also solidly behind him to support his ambitions. With all these happening, we can see that Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu may not get the party's ticket again.

If APC denies him the presidential election ticket in the year twenty twenty three presidential election, these are the two main things that are likely to happen towards the year twenty twenty presidential election:

1) Tinubu's Defection To PDP

You will all think that this is an implausible and idea that will never work out for the Tinubu. Nothing is impossible when it comes to politics in Nigeria. Tinubu has no option than to find a way to get the presidential election ticket without thinking about anything about the party. If it happens in APC or PDP, it doesn't matter. What matters is getting the ticket.

If you think that it will not happen, think about the case of Governor Godwin Obaseki in Edo State. He crossed from the APC to win the election in PDP. PDP will never deny Tinubu the ticket.

2) Resuscitation of the Forgotten ACN

Before the advent of APC, Tinubu had his own party which was quite powerful then. He can just try and revive it and call on his past political gladiators to secure a ticket in the party and contest for the upcoming presidential election.
