* Says APC Will Field A Northerner After Buhari's Tenure

By Temidayo Akinsuyi

Chief Ebenezer Babatope, a former Minister of Transport, said on Sunday that the South-West zone of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) would be fooling itself if it thought the national leadership of the party would zone the presidency to the region in the 2023 general elections.

It has been rumoured that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, former governor of Lagos State, and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo are both nursing the ambition to succeed Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

Speaking on the raging debate on whether the Northern region would agree to rotation of the presidency after the completion of President Buhari’s tenure in 2023, Babatope, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s Board of Trustees (BoT), said it was certain that the APC would field another northerner as its presidential candidate in 2023.

Babatope, in a chat with Daily Independent, said the North would find it difficult to relinquish power after the end of the Buhari presidency in 2023.

“Whatever happens inside the APC is their headache. Some of our brothers in the South-West have been deceiving themselves that somebody from the South-West will be nominated by their party for the 2023 presidential election.

“But they are merely deceiving themselves because the North will not let go easily and, as such, they will not allow the South-West to field a candidate”.

“So, if our South-West brothers in the APC think the North will hand over to them in 2023, they are only deceiving themselves”.

“They will never hand over power to them or allow them to contest election. After Buhari, they will field another Northerner. All I can do is to wish them well.”

On whether the PDP will zone the presidency to the South in 2023, Babatope said: “We of the PDP will contest the election by the grace of God and what we do in our own party will be determined by what happens within the political system in Nigeria.”

“But we want the APC in the South-West to continue to fool themselves that the national leadership will allow them to contest the election. They will never allow that to happen.”

Hmmmmmm wahala dey oooo....From every indication if APC zones presdiency to the SW, PDP will lauch all out attack and nominate a northerner as a candidate..

To solve this issue, APC and PDP should have SE candidates...

I see Atiku contesting again in 2023. He is the most popular and acceptable politician in Nigeria after Buhari. Tinubu didn't come close at all

You see, even Yoruba christians are not in support of Tinubu. They would prefer PDP to zone the ticket to the North to cut the seize of their overbearing moslem brothers.

Osibanjo is a better prospect than Tinubu. I am sure Tinubu knows this.

Yes...Osinbajo is more level headed but he can't be the next President except Buhari dies or impeached

stupid analysis from an old fool like Babatope. Somebody that didn't have stake in PDP will be saying trash to seek relevance. Who's APC if not Tinubu. It's obvious a lot of people will commit suicide on Tinubu matter soon. As far as I know, Tinubu has the whole of APC in his pocket. 2023 is just around the corner.

You are right though. Osinbajo is a nice guy but he can't win a general election with that pastor tag particularly in the north where the votes are. Fashaola is a more realistic choice for APC in 2023.

The truth of the matter is that Mr Babatope's opinion is just as useless as the APC chiefs already scheming for 2023.

Government needs to start functioning for the betterment of Nigerians, I am tired of debating 2023 in 2019.
