The next presidential election of the country is in 2023 and by then, the current President Muhammadu Buhari would have ended his tenure. As such, politicians who have the intention of occupying the apex political position of the country have started now to make smart and strategic moves ahead of the election in 2023.
One such politician is Bola Tinubu who is currently in London receiving treatment for an undisclosed ailment. It has been speculated that the former governor of Lagos State is nursing the intention of becoming the next president of the country and this is even made more obvious by the comments of his strong loyalists and supporters.
That being said, one of such comments that make the presidential intentions of Tinubu more expressive is the recent comment of Alhaji Abdulsalam Abdulkadir Zaura, a governorship aspirant in Kano State under the platform of the ruling All Progressive Congress.
Alhaji Abdulsalam Abdulkadir Zaura
According to the Daily Post media platform, Alhaji Abdulsalam Abdulkadir Zaura has affirmed that he will fight like a lion to ensure that Bola Tinubu becomes President of the country. The Kano State-born politician made this statement while speaking to Newsmen in Kano.
However, while going through the report critically, I discovered that Alhaji Abdulsalam Abdulkadir Zaura gave a very vital condition for him to support Bola Tinubu. In the report, Alhaji Abdulsalam Abdulkadir Zaura stated clearly that he will support Tinubu's presidential ambition if power is shifted to the south.
Recall that this condition given by Alhaji Abdulsalam Abdulkadir Zaura is one of the heated debates in the political arena of the country which falls on the issue of power rotation. This is because the northern political bigwigs are currently insisting that power rotation is not constitutional while their southern counterparts are insisting that the next president of the country should come from the south.
Therefore, Alhaji Abdulsalam Abdulkadir Zaura has made it clear that if APC zones their 2023 presidential ticket to the south, then he will support Tinubu. This clearly indicates that Alhaji Abdulsalam Abdulkadir Zaura stands with his fellow northern counterparts and he is not ready to give up the northern 2023 presidential agenda at the expense of supporting Bola Tinubu.
