Before the general elections in 2023, the All Progressives Congress (APC) may decide to zone its presidential ticket to the south. In the spirit of justice and equity, there has been a push for a rotating presidency between the north and south. President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that no single person will choose his successor in 2023.
Following the movement for the presidency to be moved to the south when President Muhammadu Buhari’s term ends in 2023, the main opposition is said to be having difficulties after losing some of its governors to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Political kingmakers in the governing party have allegedly agreed to award former president Goodluck Jonathan the party’s presidential ticket in 2023, according to several highranking members of the ruling party who requested anonymity.
According to the reports, the party’s acting national chairman and governor of Yobe state, Mai Mala Buni, the minister of justice, Abubakar Malami, and the governor of Jigawa state, Badaru Abubakar, are all vying for the position of presidential running mate. The current gameplan against the PDP, according to insiders, has already reached the ‘advanced level,’ with plans to provide a resounding welcome to Jonathan’s formal defection into the APC any time in August 2021.
They went on to say that President Buhari will return to Abuja shortly to celebrate the “capturing of another big fish” from the opposition camp, which will help the 2023 agenda have a more strategic base. Buni, Malami, and Badaru are said to have leapt into action, quietly conferring with stakeholders such as the church and monarchs across the country’s northern and southern regions.
