The tension of patriotic Nigerians has risen to, nearly, uncontrollable degree. The question of who will be the mega hit come 2023 presidential election has been the talk of the street. The seers, prophets, soothsayers et all whom Nigerians are also looking up to for revelation of who will be winner also keep grave mum.

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the All Progressives Congress, APC, if reality be divulged without trepidation, are the two political parties in the front line of the race. Some political analysts have allegedly tagged Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of Labour Party, LP, as a social media president, who is only supported by the youths who have no Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).

In Oyo state, the banner of the Labour Party’s flag was well raised when a political panjandrum, late Chief Adebayo Alao Akala (the erstwhile governor of Oyo state) decamped to the party during 2015 gubernatorial election. This implies the party lacks political recognition in some states. This piece is not to antagonise Peter Obi but to unmask a crystal analysis.

Since 1999, the power is accordingly rotated. General Olusegun Obasanjo gained power after a year’s stint of General Abdulsalam Abubukar on May 29, 1999, after eight years in office, Umaru Musa Yar’adua in 2007 but was unable to complete his term because of his sudden transition to glory.

Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan filled the vacuum and fortuitously, he was re-elected in 2011. After his four-year term, the incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari clinched power and this is his seventh year in the revered office. It remains less than a summer for him to vacate Aso Rock.

With the above analysis, one needs not to rack one’s brain that ‘emi lokan’ should (if he’s destined) be given the 2023 golden diadem. As at now, I am not a member of any political party but a conscious Nigerian who is primely concerned about the rapid upliftment of the country. When it is the turn of another tribe, I will never desist to call a spade a spade.
