The 2023 general elections are around the corner and parties have started laying out strategies and gathering political heavyweights who would help push their parties to the front line and ensure that they get into vital political offices.
Just as we know, the office of the President is the highest political office, and every political party would love to have one of their candidates sit at the office of power.
In Nigeria, they are numerous political parties that help build the political system of the country, however, just two political parties are considered the heavyweights as they have their numerous members in different political positions and have also had their fair share of holding the highest political position.
These two parties are the All Progressive Congress and the People's Democratic Party, these two parties are considered the biggest political parties in Nigeria, and with the 2023 elections in view, both parties are up against each other as they fight to retain or take over the Presidential power.
However, I believe that the APC would still retain power in 2023, and below are my reasons:
1. Power of incumbency: The APC is the ruling party and as such, they have the power of incumbency, it is much easier for a political party or candidate to win if they have the power of incumbency.
This makes the party much stronger than their opponent, with what President Buhari has achieved bearing the flag for the APC, it would be much easier for the party to retain power come 2023.
Aside from this, the APC has more advantages such as popularity, political charisma, and access to political funds. Retaining power come 2023 would be an easy task.
2. Presence Of Bigger Political Figure: it is very clear that the APC has big political figures who many have tipped to run for President come 2023.
Political figures such as President Buhari, Vice President Osibanjo, Tinubu, and Adams Oshiomhole are all members of the APC.
Rumor has it that Bola Tinubu might contest for President come 2023 and that only is a very big threat to other political parties.
