How Bola Tinubu’s Rumoured 2023 Presidential Ambition Could Become a Reality

For a while now, rumours have continued to make rounds about an alleged presidential ambition of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu. Recall that the 2023 presidential election is coming up in less than two years from now. This has seen rumours continue to make rounds about some top politicians in the country, nursing the dreams of contesting the election, and subsequently emerging as Nigeria’s next President.

Although Bola Tinubu has not officially declared any intention to run for President in 2023, his presidential ambition is no longer a secret, and many people believe that he would make a formal declaration at the appropriate time. However, while Bola Tinubu is yet to make any official statement about his 2023 presidential ambition, it can be argued that his rumoured ambition could eventually become a reality.

This is due to the fact that the APC National Leader, is undoubtedly one of the strong pillars of the party, and has a network of followers in the party from the two regions of Nigeria. Arguably, Bola Tinubu’s influence, and financial power, would be an edge to him if the APC decides to make the race for its 2023 presidential ticket open to candidates from both regions of Nigeria.

Aside from this, the rising demands for zoning of the 2023 Presidency to the Southern region, could also favour Bola Tinubu. Recall that for a while now, the Southern region has continued to insist on producing the next President. In my view, should the APC decide to give in to the calls for a Southern Presidency in 2023, or allow politicians from the two regions to contest in its primaries, the party’s National Leader can be argued to be the favourite to secure its ticket ahead of the 2023 election.

With the APC as the ruling party, coupled with the likelihood that it could retain power beyond 2023, Bola Tinubu’s chances of emerging as APC’s flag-bearer in the forthcoming 2023 presidential election, could see his rumoured presidential ambition become a reality.
