2023 Presidential Election: 2 Southern Politicians Northerners Might Vote As President (Photos)

As we all know that the 2023 general election is fast approaching and the northern politicians in Nigeria can endorse two southern politicians as president in the upcoming presidential election.

Even though every region in Nigeria has the right to produce the next president of Nigeria, there are some certainty that the next president might be coming from the southern region. This is because the northern region has ruled for two consecutive terms and for there to be equity and fairness, it would be nice if the south also rule for some years.

However, as we know that any candidate who wants to be elected as the president of Nigeria must have more votes in the northern part of the country because they are the most populous and their decision matters in the affair of the Nigerian politics. Politicians in the northern part of the country need to endorse a politician if they will not be contesting again, and there are two politicians that northern politicians can endorse in the south.

1. Vice President Yemi Osinbajo

The first of the list is the incumbent vice president of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo. And if the vice president would be willing to contest for the next presidential election, the north will drastically cast their votes for him because he has been for some time put to test to act as the president of Nigeria. During that time, the vice president took a lot of positive decisions while President Muhammadu Buhari was away and the hardwork of Osinbajo won the heart of so many northerners.

Also, based on the experience he has had with the current administration, he might be the best candidate to continue from where President Muhammadu Buhari stops and that's why he is the first politician that the north might endorse.

2. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan

The next southern politician that the northerners can gladly support as the president in the year 2023 is Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. The northerners might be considering him because they would want to endorse someone that would return the power back to the north when his time is over. And just as we all know what happened in 2015 when he was defeated by President Muhammadu Buhari, Goodluck Jonathan calmly handed over the power to the north. And this is the reason why he might be considered again in the coming election since he can still contest for another four years.
