While Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has deftly stayed away from the Sunday Igboho clash with the herdsmen in Yoruba speaking areas, many observers are curious about the implications of the actions of the self-acclaimed Yoruba activist as regards the 2023 presidential race.

Sunday Igboho, a man who had worked for many prominent politicians in the Southwest geopolitical zone, has suddenly become interested in flushing out the marauding herdsmen from the Yoruba nation.

 The farmer-herdsmen clash has grown over the years, with lives and properties lost.

Several cases of kidnapping carried out have been directed towards the herdsmen who have suddenly seen how more lucrative the sordid business is compared to raising a herd of cows.

Sunday Igboho has visited two states and the possibility of him extending his visit to other states in the Southwest geopolitical zone cannot be ruled out. Many prominent Nigerians have waded into the issue on the ground, but the silence of Asiwaju is quite obvious even to the deaf.

While it is not a must for him to speak on the clash between Sunday Igboho and the herdsmen, many will like to have his view about the ongoing saga.

Could the race to Aso Rock be the reason why Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has kept sealed lips? Only Jagaban can provide the correct answer to this.

The possibility of a southerner taking over the seat of the presidency from President Muhammad Buhari come 2023 is quite high, the rotation of the most powerful political office between the southern and the northern part of the country is likely to come into effect when political parties are handing out their ticket to the eligible candidate.

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu could be one of the leading contenders from the southern part of the country, should he decide to try his luck in occupying the Aso Rock.

He controls a massive number of political loyalists and has the needed financial capability to fund a successful presidential campaign.

However, the decision of Sunday Igboho to openly confront the herdsmen, thereby destroying lives and properties could be very detrimental to Tinubu's 2023 presidential bid.

For any candidate that desires to occupy the seat of the presidency in the country, the politician must get the support of the northerners. They have the highest numbers of eligible voters, the candidate backed by the majority of the northerners is likely to be the next occupant of the Aso Rock.

Many Nigerians still vote after putting their ethnicity into consideration, many northern leaders have been vocal about the ongoing event in the Southwest geopolitical zone, they insinuated that the northerners are being persecuted in the Southern part of the country. 

The clash between Sunday Igboho and the herdsmen could work against any Yoruba candidate that may be interested in the seat of presidency.

From the Yoruba's perspective, the majority are in support of leaders that will join the movement to put an end to the activities of the herdsmen that have cost lives and properties.

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will need all the strategies to skillfully navigate this period without doing great damage to his 2023 presidential race.

Dear Reader, Is Sunday Igboho indirectly working against Tinubu's presidential bid? Drop your comments!
