What Bola Tinubu Can Do As Yakasi Says APC Potential Candidate Is In Southwest Not Southeast

Salihu Tanko Yakasi, a former special adviser on media to Kano state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje reportedly criticized governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi state over his posture that the All Progressives Congress, APC will zone 2023 presidency to the Southeast geopolitical zones of the country. However, according to a report from Punch News, Yakasi further said that Umahi would be missing it if the reason for his decamping from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to the APC in November 2020 was for the ruling party to zone the 2023 presidential ticket to the Southeast.

Yakasi in his opinion reportedly made it known that the potential candidate of the APC is in the Southwest and not in the Southeast, he claimed that the Southeast is a zone that have no political number or weight to pull votes across the country in the forthcoming elections. Meanwhile, in this article, I will be discussing what Bola Tinubu as one of the top presidential aspirants in APC can do in regards to the recent statement from Yakasi so as to aid the sustainability of his aspiration ahead 2023. You will agree with me that Bola Tinubu will not be the only politician to bid for the party's ticket, and that is part of the reasons why he must be swift and diplomatic in his moves politically.

What Bola Tinubu can do;

Firstly, there have been speculations that APC will zone their candidate for presidency to the Southwest come 2023, although this is not yet affirmative, and in politics there is a popular saying that in every rumor, there exists some iota of truth, hence Bola Tinubu as a politician from the Southwest can capitalize on this and see how he can market himself well to the members of APC, he can achieve this by unveiling loyalty to the politicians across all the zones in the party, this is something that will make him get their loyalty in return which will further help him in his aspiration.

Secondly, Bola Tinubu can ensure that his candidacy is well grounded in Southwest which happens to be his home region. You will further agree with me that his stake in the Southwest is not something he should joke with as it happens to be a key determinant in his agenda and slating, if Bola Tinubu ensures that he has high ovation in his region and most politicians affiliated to the region have his agenda adopted, it will in return ease his marketability in APC because public opinion is also a considerable factor, and if Bola Tinubu readily have this fulfiled, it is something that will make his aspiration well grounded.

For things not to fall apart for Bola Tinubu come 2023 in APC, he is expected to utilize his affiliation to the Southwestern part of the country effectively by making himself strong politically so that other regions will be deactivated from competing with him for presidency in APC. Meanwhile, consideration to the above stated points is such that can aid his aspiration in the ruling party.
