1. He is Nursing a 2023 Presidential Ambition
Atiku's reaction reveal that he is warming up to run for President in 2023. Thus, he knew that if the PDP should resort to zoning, The outcome might not favour the North, which means his 2023 Presidential Ambition may also suffer a setback in return.
2. He believes the PDP may not win the 2023 Presidential Election by presenting a Southern Candidate
Atiku might have believed that for the PDP to win the next Presidential Election, the party have to field a Northern due to the huge voting strength of the North. Also, the PDP already has a strong political structure in the South-South, South-East and some parts of the South-West.
Thus, the party needs a larger percentage of the Votes from the North to win the 2023 Presidential Poll and this can only be achieveable by fielding a Candidate of Northern Origin.
