The 2023 general elections will take place in less than two years, and according to widespread conjecture, Bola Ahmed Tinubu may be one of the candidates competing for the Presidency in that election. As outlined in this post, I explain why he should run for president under the PDP banner and why he should choose Lai Mohammed as his running mate.
Bola Tinubu is currently the national chairman of the All Progressive Congress, and there is little doubt that if he decides to run for president, he will do so under the banner of the All Progressive Congress. The fact is that there are other candidates who would wish to run under the APC banner and who would have a better chance of winning than him makes this an unwise choice.
For Tinubu to stand a better chance of winning the upcoming presidential elections, he must defect to the opposition party, known as the PDP, and below are 2 strong reasons why defecting will help his presidential ambition come through
- You’d agree with me that the presence of Yemi Osinbajo and Yahaya Bello alone is sufficient to ensure Tinubu’s exclusion from the Presidential campaign, based on the foregoing. However, if Tinubu decides to move to the PDP, the opposition party, he will have a better chance of becoming the party’s presidential candidate than if he remained with the APC. This is one more reason why he should run for President under the People’s Democratic Party banner.
- Another reason is the fact that the APC has been in office since 2015, which means it has been in power for six years. I’ m not convinced that the majority of Nigerians would support another four years of APC rule, and as a result, I believe that Tinubu must defect to the PDP in order to win the support of the people.
