Why Tinubu May Get South-West Endorsement Ahead Of 2023 Presidency By Omo-Ikirodah

Why Tinubu May Get South-West Endorsement Ahead Of 2023 Presidency By Omo-Ikirodah

The rate at which the political pendulum is swinging it is just as if the 2023 presidential election is barely a year away from now.

Intrigues and hire wired politicking is presently the order of the day,the battle to outwit one another is in full throttle and one who is not careful would sustain injuries from the fireworks.

In politics, we call it collateral damages. the weak and feeble-minded always gets bruised while the strong and clever pushes on till the final lap.

Let me start by making it clear that Buhari himself is a god with a SMALL g, a demi-god.

No matter where he goes wrong he has the strong fanatical backing that can never make him go “wrong.”

In 2015 Buhari defeated the then-sitting president Goodluck Jonathan with 15.4 M votes to PDP’s  12,8M votes.

Then in 2019 with ballots from all 36 states counted, Buhari’s All Progressives Congress (APC) garnered 15.2m votes compared with 11.3 m for Atiku Abubakar’s People’s Democratic Party.

What does that tell you? Buhari never dropped his fan base.

The man is simply loved by his people.

From the look of things, Nigeria might not have such a national selling candidate anymore like in the MODEL of Buhari.

So it brings it to the natural equation of each region presenting their acceptable candidate to succeed Buhari.

The era of imposing a candidate on a region like 1999 is long gone, more like JUNE 12.

So let us take a look at the likely permutations for each region and its acceptable candidate by CONSENSUS.

Una now wetin be CONSENSUS so for politics? Na the decision by the elders which are called CABAL that matter,  it is not FACEBOOK consensus or even party consensus.

Soro Soke generation is not even reading the handwriting on the wall, all those that are currently ruling the country from Councillors to the Presidency are against this same social media THING.

LOl, and yet it is the social media these people are conducting who would fly PDP and APC ticket, how absurd.

They should form their party so they can decide who would fly their ticket if it is going to be Sowore, Aisha, Davido or even me.

Fact is none of them can influence the choice of PDP and APC so they should go hit the ground running and get their own party and stop disturbing us with who would fly these two major party’s ticket that they are not even card-carrying members of the parties.

Maybe they think the youth that is an SSA to a Governor would leave the Governor’s interest and jump with their Soro Soke bandwagon.

Back to the gist jare, for the North, Atiku would defeat anybody anytime, any day.

I got politically scared of Atiku when ahead of the 2011 presidential elections he came tops amongst the PDP consensus candidacy for the north.

This oga defeated IBB, Gusau and Saraki to emerge as the Northern Candidate after a careful selection by 17 wise Northern leaders led by the late sage Mallam Adamu Ciroma.

Go and take a look at the composition of the selection committee then you would understand the use of my word CABAL hereafter.

Atiku no get mate for Northern candidacy in 2023, El Rufai is no match for him, mind you the North would come up with a single candidate nothing like North-West, North-East, North-South.

It is just a single candidate the north would support irrespective of the political party he belongs.

Then for the South, it is unfortunate that each region would produce their choice candidate.

Nyesom Wike would emerge as the South-South presidential candidate undisputed. I won’t even waste a second debating on his choice.

Then like I keep saying the South-East is unfortunately not in contention for the presidency if not by now they should have projected someone to groom.

The only contenders right now are Orji Kalu and Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi and unfortunately, the APC they belong to is not a South-East party, their candidacy would not fly even above the ceiling.

We are now left with the South-West region to analyze.

So when people keep saying Tinubu has no chance I keep wondering where they are coming from and driving to.

Fayemi is a political orphan in the South-West…Fayose although a strong soldier in the game is no longer in power and can not muster the required muscle to get the slot.

So those making mouths ask yourself who South-West would present that can match the clout and political sagacity of Tinubu?

If you can name one Yoruba man that would defeat Tinubu like it was in the battle between the Late Sage Uncle Bola Ige and Chief Olu Falae then I would doff my hat for you.

Funny enough the only person that can come to one’s mind is the current Vice-President, Prof Osinbajo.

So which people would adjudicate on the South-West decision like it was done @ the D’Rovans Hotel in Ibadan where the TECHNOCRAT, Chief Olu Falae won the Cicero, Late Uncle Bola Ige?

So when we say Tinubu can not fly I just shake my head in disbelief.

As it stands the only two viable candidates that can be presented from the South West is Professor Osinbajo and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and take it to the bank the elders would decide and it would be a final decision that would be accepted by the duo without single rancour.

So if it favours Tinubu which the odds presently seems to romance then so be it.

Finally, aside Tinubu and Atiku who do you suggest have the national reach and financial muscle to take off from where Buhari stopped?

Well, I don’t think Buhari’s factor would play so much in 2023 as it is evident that the strongest group in the APC and PDP would get their respective party tickets.

In a nutshell disregard all these stories that Buhari endorses this and that, the real battle is within the cabal handling the negotiations on a successor come 2023.
