Opinion: 2 Incumbent Governors In Nigeria That May Not Win Their Reelections

Some people measure the achievements of Nigerian politicians through what they have achieved so far during their duration in the power. That is nice but a politician's success should be measured using the number of tenures that the politician uses in power. A politician may be elected into a political office today and will be out of his office in the next few years.

If a politician has done well with his first term tenure, there would be higher chances for him to win his reelection in the following to that particular office. Governors in Nigeria have higher chances of winning their reelections with the way things are going in the country because each of the political parties in the country wants to protect the state they are dominating.

There are some governors in Nigeria that are likely not to win their second term election with what is happening in their respective states. The factors that would be responsible for their failures in the upcoming elections would be discussed below thereafter in this article. The first person that is likely not to retain his seat is Governor Hope Uzodinma from Imo State.

Recently, crises are emerging almost every day in the South-East part of the country. Killing, insurgency, and banditry are factors affecting the progress of the state. Governor Hope Uzodinma visited Governor Muhammadu Buhari to resolve the issue but his house was attacked the second day after his visitation to the president.

It is evident that there are some people that are desperately looking for his exit as the governor of the state. Hope Uzodinma is likely not to win his reelection in the next Imo State gubernatorial election. Engineer Seyi Makinde of Oyo State is another politician that is not likely to retain his governorship seat in the next election.

Issues with Sunday Igboho are part of those things that will work against Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State. He has internal problems with the top political stalwarts in the State. To prove this, Seyi Makinde has once the Peoples Democratic Party's WhatsApp group. It is not likely for Engineer Seyi Makinde to win the next Oyo State gubernatorial election.
