There are three politicians from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that can challenge Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the next presidential election. Although the members of the ruling party have extended their political strengths over the years, there are still political leaders in the opposition party that can still penetrate the capacity of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in many ramifications.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members have been weakened politically due to the fact that the party has not been functioning the way it used to function since the year 2015 when it was unseated by the newly formed All Progressive Congress (APC). Internal crises are the major stronghold problems that are facing the progress of the opposition party nationally. Currently, the party has no standby national chairman because Prince Uche Secondus has been suspended over the fact he engaged in anti-party activities in his political ward.

Despite all these shortcomings happening to the opposition party, there are still some members of the party that can stand boldly and challenge the power of the ruling party in the forthcoming presidential election that has been scheduled to hold in the year 2023. In this article, I shall be highlighting three potential politicians that can challenge Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the next presidential election.

1. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso

The former Governor of Kano State is the first potential politician in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who is capable of challenging Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the next presidential election. It is a known fact the majority of the votes in the Nigerian election comes from the northern part of the country and there are high tendencies for northerners to win in any national election in Nigeria. Apart from the fact that Kwankwanso is a former governor in Kano State, he is also the Senator representing Kano Central Senatorial District.

He has influences with most of the people in the northern part of the country. He is the founder and establisher of Kwankwassiya political movement in Kano State. The movement can serve as a better campaign ground for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the northern part of the country if Kwankwanso is chosen as the flag bearer of the party.

Some weeks ago, all governors in the southern part of the met in Lagos State with a view to producing the next president of the country from the south. After the deliberations at the meeting, the governors unanimously agreed to support a southern politician for the presidency. Peter Obi is a southern politician from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who has the capabilities to challenge Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the ruling party.

Peter Obi ran alongside Atiku Abubakar in the last presidential election, and he contributed to the performance of the party. Although the opposition party lost the election due to some unavoidable circumstances that happened to the party. Peter Obi got the support of the Igbos massively in the election, and the same thing can still repeat itself this time around.

3. Atiku Abubakar

The last person on this list that can challenge Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is Atiku Abubakar. He was chosen as the flag bearer of the opposition party in the last general election and lost eventually to the All Progressive Congress (APC). One of those factors that affected Atiku Abubakar is that his opponent is also a northerner. The votes from the northern part of the country were shared by both Atiku Abubakar and President Muhammadu Buhari. Now that Atiku Abubakar may be the northerner in the game, it will be easy for him to emerge.
