As we may know, the 2023 Presidency is gradually gathering a lot of steam following the spate of political activities going on in the country, in recent times. However, some weeks back the former Governor of Kwara State declared his presidential ambitions in Benue State when he visited Governor Samuel Ortom of the state. After which the Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki has continued to receive endorsements from different chapters of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, following his public declaration of interests to run for the 2023 presidency.
Recall that, the leader of the Lagos4Lagos movement, Dr Jide Adediran, gathered in Lagos State to defect into the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). But in these articles I will mention one reason why PDP might decide to pick Saraki as there presidential candidate.
Agitation for North Central 2023 presidency.
Since the stakeholders in the North Central are demanding that the 2023 presidency should be rotate to the North Central, based on the fact that the zone have never produce an elected president since the return of democracy, actually, it may influence the power Brokers of the peoples Democratic party to consider picking Bukola Saraki as the Presidential candidate of the party in 2023, just to ensure that North Central support the party in order to achieve their interest of producing a democratic president in 2023.
In my own opinion, we all know that The current ruling party All Progressives Congress (APC), will be looking to retain power, while the major opposition party the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), will want to ensure they get back to controlling the helm of affairs in the country, thought There is no doubt that the North Central Zone is serious about lobbying, persuading, and influencing the rest of the country to make 2023 a year for electing a North Central president and, the former Senate President may likely win the primary owing to his political astuteness and popularity which cut across the major political zones in the country when compared to other potential aspirants. My question is will Saraki Be the Solution to Nigeria Problem?
