Former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan can endorse two members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the presidential and vice-presidential candidates of the party ahead of the forthcoming presidential election in the year 2023. For the past six years, the opposition party has been trying to challenge the power of the All Progressive Congress (APC) but things have not been going through for the party as planned. As a former president of the country, Jonathan can use his experience and knowledge to endorse two politicians for the party.
Goodluck Ebele Jonathan served as the president of the country for some years before he was defeated by the incumbent government. Jonathan can still contest as the president of the country if he wishes to, but he can just serve as an adviser to the party. He has been in the party for a very long time, and he must have known those politicians who are capable of representing the interest of the party in the upcoming presidential election without slowing down the progress of the party. Jonathan can endorse the following politicians as president and vice president.
- Peter Obi
The first member of the opposition party that former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan should endorse is Peter Obi from Anambra State. There has been a debate on the region that will produce the next presidential candidate of the opposition party for a very long time. The southerners are demanding the post while the northerners are also showing multiple interests in the position.
Goodluck Ebele Jonathan can show his position by endorsing Peter Obi as the main flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the upcoming presidential election. Peter Obi ran alongside Atiku Abubakar in the previous presidential election as his running mate, and he did well throughout the electioneering processes. He can use the experience that he gathered during the election to lead the opposition party in the year 2023. Jonathan can endorse Peter Obi from Anambra State.
- Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso
After endorsing Peter Obi, Jonathan should consider a northern politician as his running mate because of fairness and equity. If the presidential candidate of the party comes from the south, his running mate should come from the northern part of the country. Jonathan can endorse Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso as the running mate of Peter Obi in the upcoming general election.
Kwankwanso is a politician who knows the political atmosphere of northern states very well. He ruled Kano State for eight years before becoming the senator representing the interest of the state at the national level. The power of the ruling party must be challenged in the northern part of the country, and Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso is the person that can help the opposition party in the northern part of the country.
