At some point or another, all political parties suffer difficulties. The downfall of a political party could be attributed to flaws among its members or leaders. Due to a number of issues, the opposition party did not win the presidential election in 2019. These characteristics marked a party’ s collapse, particularly when the leader fails to see the flaws among the members.
The failure of the People’ s Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2019 presidential election is due to the choosing of the wrong politicians from the wrong regions. Any candidate running for president must possess certain leadership characteristics. The party made the mistake of choosing the wrong politicians from the wrong parts of the country, which influenced the votes.
Choosing the proper candidate to be the party’ s flag bearer, on the other hand, is critical since it determines the political parties’ faith throughout the election. The opposition party chose the appropriate politicians who were popular with the people and were elected to the presidency.
The populace will not support a coalition of politicians from the north and south since both regions will want to exert authority over one another as much as possible. Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar was picked and endorsed as the PDP’ s presidential candidate, with Chief Peter Obi as his running partner.
Atiku Abubakar received the support of the people in the north and south, and he worked his hardest during the campaign to deliver his best. Chief Peter Obi was not present when Atiku needed him the most, so the triumph was more or less one- sided.
Furthermore, the majority of the votes did not come from the south of the country, as the people of Anambra are not known for voting in large numbers for their candidates. Although Chief Peter Obi’ s assistance was not visible during the elections, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) should not repeat the mistake of selecting proper politicians from the wrong regions, as was the case with Peter Obi.
