In anticipation of President Muhammadu Buhari’ s tenure coming to an end in 2023, there is much speculation about who will be the most qualified candidate for the seat. However, the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) has not yet announced its candidates for the presidency in 2023.
The People’ s Democracy Party (PDP) has likewise yet to make a public announcement about its presidential candidates for the year 2023.
Nigerians are looking forward to electing a leader who is capable of rescuing the country from the mess it is in under the APC government. I have proposed five current governors who I believe are capable of bringing about change in Nigeria if given the opportunity to rule as President in the 2023 general election, which will take place in April.
These governors were selected for inclusion on this list based on their performance as governors in their respective states.
Here are the names of the 4 popular governors that can handle Nigeria as president
The Current Governor of Kogi state (Yahaya Bello)
In recent months, there have been rumors that the governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, has aspirations to become the president of Nigeria in 2023, Governor Yahaya Bello has already won the hearts of many Nigerians for his participation in the Covid- 19 crisis, even before he announced his intention to run for president in the 2023 general election.
Yahaya Bello was the sole governor who refused to comply with the federal government’ s order to place the country under lockdown during the Covid- 19 era, despite intense pressure from the federal government, the National Coordination Committee, and other governors.
The governor did his best in terms of security; we are all aware of the challenges confronting the country’ s security situation; Yahaya Bello was able to address issues such as kidnappings, bandits, and even the Fulani herdsmen, who were not allowed to operate freely in Kogi state, If the governor is elected as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), I feel he will be a fantastic candidate for Nigerians to support.
The Current Governor of Kaduna State (Mallam Nasir El- Rufai)
The Kaduna state governor, Mallam Nasir El- Rufai, has declared that he will run for president in the 2023 election. The declaration was made by a group known as the ‘ Nassiriya Organization’ in order to compel him to run for president in the 2023 election. The group has received mixed reactions from supporters, In my opinion, the governor will make an excellent leader for Nigeria.
El Rufai is the type of leader that Nigeria is in desperate need of right now in order to move the country forward. The governor has attempted to transform Kaduna state into a Nigerian London by creating several highways, upgrading markets, and other initiatives.
Also in Kaduna state, he has given his all in the areas of security and agricultural development, In Nigeria under the leadership of El Rufai, we have seen significant progress in the areas of the economy and national security.
The current Governor of Borno State (Babagana Umara Zulum)
Babagana Umara Zulum is another another governor whom I admire greatly, He is a well- known academic governor who also happens to be a politician, President Mohammed Buhari recently awarded Professor Zulum the title of ” de Grand Officer dans l’ Ardre, ” which is similar to the GCON award in Nigeria.
The award, which was presented to him by President Buhari, was given to Zulum in recognition of the governor’ s honest efforts in the fight against Boko Haram, Despite the fact that he has only been in office for a short period of time, his efforts to promote growth and development in Borno state and throughout Nigeria are evident, his efforts to maintain peace and security in Borno state have been significant. Zulum will be the type of leader that Nigeria needs as its president in the 2023 general election.
The Current Governor of Sokoto State (Aminu Waziri Tambuwal)
Sokoto State Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has Waziri Tambuwal is a politician in Nigeria, as well as a well- known lawyer in the country, He is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Nigerians expect him to be the party’ s presidential candidate in 2023, thanks to his excellent record as governor of Sokoto state.
