2023: Buhari Needs To Endorse His Successor

The debate about who should succeed president Muhammadu Buhari in 2023 has been dominating the front pages of major news outlets in the country. As the nation prepares to usher in a new administration in 2023, the debate about the region that should produce a suitable replacement after Buhari leaves in 2023, continues to gather momentum.

While some individuals and groups are clamoring to get the president to endorse their candidates, Buhari has remained mum about whom he will support to replace him. The president's silence about his potential successor have been creating numerous speculations within the Nigerian political space.

Why Buhari needs to endorse a candidate as soon as possible 

The debate about which region should take over from the north has been heating the polity in recent months. These issue has been deepening the polarity between the north and south, with the latter still maintaining its position that the rotation policy have come to stay. President Muhammadu Buhari is, perhaps, the most influential figure in the country today. He has what can be described in Hollywood terms as a “cult” following. If the president comes out to endorse a candidate, it will surely cool down the already heated debate. Evidently, the president's neutral stance at the moment might be connected to the fact that he does not want to anger a certain region or groups. But, as an incumbent president, he is surely going to endorse a candidate in the long run.

The unwritten rule that gives the incumbent the liberty to endorse the candidate who will take over from them, will definitely prevail on the president in the coming months. Such move will ensure proper planning on how power will be transferred smoothly to the next president. Whatever the decision of the president may be, it will help in cooling down the already tense situation.
