3 Southern Politicians Tambuwal May Consider As His Running Mate If He Runs For President


One strategy that can work for Aminu Tambuwal is to quickly consider three southern politicians, who will be his running mate for the 2023 elections. Since he himself is from Sokoto State, he may need to go for a southern politician for the other slot. That has always been the norm.

And since he is a northern Muslim, Tambuwal would be expected to pick a southern Christian just like the current combination of Muhammadu Buhari and Yemi Osinbajo. The Sokoto State governor should consider the three subregions in south (southeast, southwest and south- south).

Definitely, Mr. Nyesom Wike would be the first person Tambuwal would want to consider. The Rivers State governor is quite a strong politician who can shake ground and make the PDP win the presidential election. Tambuwal is a close ally of the Rivers State governor and they can build a highly formidable force in the party.


The south- south geopolitical zone is a strong region considering the presence of top political stalwarts. Meanwhile, Wike is acceptable there to a very large extent and his influence will be of great advantage to Mr. Aminu Tambuwal, the Sokoto State governor, who has expressed interest in the PDP ticket.

The southwest region is a stronghold of the All Progressives Congress. The party has spread its wings and tentacles to every nook and cranny. The APC dominates and leads PDP in five key states in the southwest. Mr. Tambuwal may want to clip APC wings and end the dominance. The way out is to consider a candidate there.


It would have been Mr. Seyi Makinde, but the Oyo State governor may want to go for another governorship term in Oyo State. As a result of this, Tambuwal may opt for Ayodele Fayose, who has been a very faithful party member. Fayose himself is capable of helping Aminu Tambuwal for the race.

Lastly, Tambuwal can’ t afford to overlook the Igbo people. The southeastern people deserve more than what they get from the PDP. Hence, Tambuwal should consider picking a politician there. However, he should go for one who is politically relevant or who is in power now.

Former deputy president of the House of Senate Ike Ekweremadu would be an appropriate person for the job. He is vastly experienced and he can connect with former and present echelons with ease. He worked under David Mark, Bukola Saraki and he is close to Goodluck Jonathan.
