Atiku Abubakar wins PDP primary.
The former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has won the 2023 PDP Presidential ticket.
He got 373 votes beating Wike’s 224. He led him with 149 votes
Aminu Tambuwal stepped down for Atiku for him to gather the core North votes. Unfortunately the southern votes were splitted by Pius Anyim’s, Udom Emmanuel’s and Nwachukwu’s
With the emergence of Atiku as PDP standard candidate, take it to the bank, APC will not field Tinubu, Osinbajo or Amaechi so that it won’t make the Goodluck Jonathan’s mistake of 2015.
Rabiu Kwankwaso, another northerner has put more pressure on the southerners once he emerges as the presidential candidate of his NNPP party and i can’t see anyone stopping him
The southern candidates are technically out of the equation.
Presidency is going to the North and if it ends that way, this is end of rotational presidency in Nigeria
Make nobody come dey tell me say na British be our problems in Nigeria
As it happened in 1960 when Nnamdi Azikwe could not form a coalition partnership with Awolowo to form the national government, history is repeating itself again because the southern politicians cannot look at the big picture and work together.
This is a self inflicted wound by the south because the children of Awolowo and Nnamdi Azikwe have not learnt from the mistakes of their fathers. While blowing gramnar, making noise all over the media that power must come to the South , the North were politically and silently working towards knocking out this gentleman agreement
Nigerian south, north is your boss when it comes to politics.
The crowning of Atiku as the next President may have begun because the southern politicians in APC may undermine their party just like the northerners worked against Goodluck Jonathan in PDP because of the jettisoning of the gentleman rotational agreement in 2015.
So the serial loser Atiku may repeat the “Buhari effect” in 2023
