Makinde Releases Names Of Some Of The Top People Interested In PDP Presidency


Former Vice- President Atiku Abubakar and Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, according to Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, have expressed interest in running for president of Nigeria in the 2023 presidential election.

Makinde Release Names Of People Interested In Presidential Seat In the Party

In recent weeks, there have been rumors about who may run for president in the upcoming general election, particularly in light of the difficulties created by the zoning controversy. Makinde, in an interview broadcast on Channels Television on Thursday, boasted that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is comprised of ” eminently qualified” individuals who are capable of guiding Nigeria forward.

He further stated that the only way for the PDP to be defeated is for the party to become internally divided.

” I believe there is hope for our nation if the PDP governors can unite in one direction and agree on the majority of the issues and challenges that we are facing. ” ” Our party is comprised of individuals with exceptional qualifications who are capable of leading this country to victory. ”


” Some people have expressed an interest, like as former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, governors Tambuwal and Bala Mohammed, and others have not.

When We Get To The Bridge We Will Cross It

We’ ll surely cross the bridge if we get to that point, ” says the leader. Please assist us in having a successful national convention, which I shall request the support of PDP members and Nigerians in general for at this juncture, by supporting us in having a successful national convention.


” There is no way you can become anything, be it president, vice president, governor, or anything else if we don’ t have a political party, ” ” The first thing we want to do is make sure that everything is running smoothly within our party, ” Makinde explained.

The issue of whether Makinde believes the PDP will usurp the APC as the country’ s ruling party in 2023 was met with a resounding ” Yes. ” ” Well, it is a question that I know Nigerians will answer, and they will answer decisively, ” Makinde responded.


Emeka Kalu Campaigns Atiku for Presidency

Before the general election scheduled for 2023, Dr. Emeka Kalu, the National Coordinator of the People’ s Democratic Party Coalition (PDPCo), has campaigned support for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, a former Vice President of Nigeria, in order to win the election. In addition, Dr. Iyorcha Ayu’ s appointment as Senate President in the third republic by a segment of the North was hailed by Kalu as a positive move in the correct path.


Despite the fact that the PDP faces a mammoth battle to retake power in 2023, Kalu asserted that Atiku was the best candidate for the political party in a press conference.

” This may appear strange in the eyes of fellow party leaders, particularly those who have expressed an interest in running for the nation’ s highest office. To be sure, thinking about being President of one’ s country is a pleasant thought, but having the ability, charisma, and tenacity to enter the ring and take power away from those who currently wield it is an entirely different animal altogether.


Emeka Claims Atiku Is The Best Bet

There is a call among other things for the PDP management to be proactive and eagle sighted by looking beyond their noses and to allow Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to retain the 2019 presidential flag in 2023. ” The All Progressives Congress (APC) and its cabal are always mentioned in the context of dethroning them and enthroning another refined government committed to reforming Nigeria. ”


” Atiku Abubakar is the best bet for this deal so that our party can ride on the horse of celebration at the end of the day, and it calls for ensuring that the same measure that the PDP used to choose Dr. Ayu for the presidential ticket be applied in the selection of Atiku for the presidential ticket instead of preparing to come out for the noisy fight against one another, ” he said. According to the alliance, the PDP organs and Atiku’ s family members should back his candidacy for president in the 2023 elections.


If Atiku Abubakar is successful in securing the ticket of the party ahead of the upcoming general election, he may wish to run for president in the year 2023. In order to promote fairness and equity within the opposition party, the party’ s leaders have decided to open up the presidential election ticket to any and all presidential hopefuls who may be interested, without taking the zoning system into consideration. Atiku Abubakar will want to be one of the people who will carry the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) flag in the year 2023, and he will work hard to achieve this goal.


Atiku’ s Possible Hurdles In The PDP

In the opposition party’ s primary election, there are a number of factors that could conspire against Atiku Abubakar receiving the party’ s presidential nomination. Atiku Abubakar was the party’ s presidential candidate in the last presidential election, which took place in the year 2019, and he was defeated alongside Peter Obi, who also happened to be his running partner throughout the electoral process at the time. Before Atiku Abubakar was defeated in the election, a number of situations occurred during the electioneering process that he was able to go around.


Members of the opposition party may not want Atiku Abubakar to be the party’ s flag bearer again this time around because he was the one who was selected by the party to be its presidential candidate in the previous election. Because he was defeated in the previous presidential election several years ago, it is possible that people will not vote for the same candidate twice for the same position. Even if Atiku Abubakar does not secure the ticket of the opposition party before the 2023 elections, there is a course of action he can take after losing the ticket.


Atiku Should Rally Behind Any Candidate Giving The Presidential Ticket

The most important step that Atiku Abubakar can take is to rally behind the candidate who has been selected to be the party’ s presidential candidate in the upcoming election. Atiku Abubakar is a well- liked politician in Nigeria who has the ability to persuade people to a certain extent. During the electioneering process, he should lend his support to the party’ s presidential candidate, both financially and economically. Atiku should be a staunch supporter of the candidate who will be chosen as the party’ s flag bearer in the coming weeks and months.

The fact that Atiku Abubakar has endorsed the politician will increase the likelihood of that candidate winning the upcoming presidential election. If Atiku does not receive the Democratic Party’ s nomination for president in 2023, he should remain in the opposition party. He should simply support the candidate who will be chosen to replace him in the presidential election in the year 2023, rather than himself.
