The crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party PDP in the state could only be managed and cannot be totally solved. Arguably, As the 2023 Polls is approaching, the Presidential Primary election may deepen the crisis in the Party. The Political Permutations will be adopted by the Party Leaders, of which it will favour Some Presidential candidates while it will not favour some Candidates.
It should be recalled that the Party zoned the Presidential ticket to the North in 2019. The former vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakr happened to be the Presidential candidate of the Party in 2019 Presidential Polls. Abubakr contested the 2019 Presidential election against President Muhammadu Buhari who happened to be the Presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress APC. But Buhari won the 2019 Presidential election. He defeated Atiku Abubakr in 2019 Presidential Polls.
However, the 2023 Presidential Polls is approaching and the Peoples Democratic Party PDP may likely zone the Presidential ticket to the north again. The Party Leaders have made it known to the Public, that the Party may likely Pick the Former vice President, who was also the Presidential candidate of the Party in 2019 Presidential Polls, Alhaji Atiku Abubakr or the former Senate President, Bukola Saraki in the forthcoming Presidential Polls.
Though, it was reliably gathered that the Presidential ticket will be zoned to the north nevertheless, the Ticket will still be thrown open to all the Presidential candidates in all the geopolitical zones in the Country. Therefore, the Presidential candidates that best fit from the south south are two incumbent Governors from the region. They have been doing well in the country as Governor elected under the Platform of the PDP.
The first PDP Governor is the Governor of Rivers state, Governor Nyesome Wike. The Governor has what it to contest the Presidential election under the Platform of the Party. Governor Wike is a vibrant PDP Governor. He is one of the of Pillar of the Party in southsouth. Though, Governor Wike has not shown interest to contest the Presidential Polls because the Presidential ticket may not zoned to the South. Governor Wike has performed wonderfully well in the state among the south south PDP Governors and he deserves the Presidential ticket, if the PDP could zone the Presidential ticket to the South.
Another Governor that deserves the Presidential ticket from south south among the PDP Governors is the Governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki. Governor Godwin Obaseki deserves the Presidential ticket in 2023 Presidential Polls, if he's interested to contest the Polls. Obaseki won the Governorship election for second term under the Platform of the PDP in contrary to what People were expecting in the state. People believed that Obaseki will loose the Governorship election, when his Godfather, Adams Oshiomole refused to support him.
The two Governors have what it takes to contest the 2023 Presidential Polls among the PDP Governors from the South. Though, these two Governors have not shown their interest to contest the 2023 Presidential Polls but if they show interest to contest, they really deserve it from the PDP in southsouth.
