Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has congratulated the main opposition, Peoples Democratic Party PDP for electing a North Easterner in the person of former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar as its presidential candidate ahead of 2023, stating that his has laid to rest permutations about a Southern President in APC, ABN TV reports.

He urged President Muhammadu Buhari to use his influence to pick a successor for himself from the North East.

He said, "Congratulations to the PDP for electing a North Easterner. Nigerians must have seen what I saw yesterday. For our party the APC , it is no longer feasible to talk about Southern candidate except the APC want to go on political retirement.

"I urge the National Chairman of the party and the entire NWC to stamp their feet and zone APC presidential ticket to the North East.

"President Muhammad Buhari has a right to choose his successor and I call on him to pick Senator Ahmad Lawan as his successor. In every democratic setting, presidents and Governors support and pick their successors. I call on President Buhari to pick a successor from North East and that will be the equity the South East need. With North East , the cycle will be closest to completion of regions producing a president of Nigeria.

"By now, all APC aspirants should drop their ambition and support a North Easterner. Senator Ahmad Lawan is the destination.

You can hate this man all you want but he said the obvious truth..

If APC gives their ticket to a southerner, APC is gone forever!

Thiefnubu should imbibe the spirit of sportsmanship and support whoever APC fields which is obviously not him, his personal and selfish interest is what brought this mess upon us, this time around he should put his selfish interest aside!

Clout chasing Igbo, no northerner in the north currently can beat Atiku, he is the most popular presidential candidate in the north, the only person that can face him is Jonathan or Tinubu with strong northern candidate

I'm rooting for Tinubu, he's just the only one that can match Atiku word for word..
Lawan cannot even win his state.

Let me make it straight now
As things stand now, I support Tinubu for the seat, I want a Christian northerner to be VP, preferable Boss mustapha

Alright boss. Lawan is a cool guy but I don’t see a realistic path to victory for him. They will divide north east and west while Atiku will win the entire south. Lawan will be an easy victory for Atiku.

Atiku will inevitably field a Christian southerner Vice Presidential candidate.
The Muslim/Muslim option for the APC is dead on arrival, the Muslim Southerner Presidential candidate/Christian (northerner) Vice Presidential candidate is also dead on arrival for APC
Tinubu is inevitably out of the equation and no longer an option for APC with the realities on ground based on his religion which is a very sensitive topic in Nigeria polity---Quote me anywhere.

The worst Tinubu can do next week is to defect to SDP to try and actualize his life long Presidential ambition.APC would not risk him as their Presidential candidate, cos religious sentiments will be whipped up from the South to the North, which is the unfortunate situation of Nigeria we find our selves today.
Christians cut across the entire south and North, will rather vote a Atiku that has picked Christian Vice President than Vote a Tinubu who is a Muslim and that picked a Muslim Vice President also .
Also Muslim Northerners will outrightly reject a Southern Muslim Presidential Candidate (Tinubu) if he picks a Christian Northern Vice President
APC Chieftains will have to crack their heads in the next 1 week to come up with permutations that favour them before their party primary cos Atiku emergence as PDP candidate has disrupted many permutations across the Nigeria political terrain

Remove Thiefnubu from there, Thiefnubu can only try to win southwest region in the south and can never beat atiku in the whole of North!
Should apc field Tinubu, they already lost even before the election started..

We warned them but they said they are sophisticated !!
APC is in deep shiit already, they have no candidate to match Atiku, they should have wooed Atiku back to the party immediately after the 2019 election. They were praying and wishing for Wike's victory yesterday, they never wanted Atiku on the ballot as PDP Presidential candidate.
Their best choice who has a national appeal like Atiku at the moment is is GEJ (Good luck) but I doubt Jonathan is interested in contesting.
Atiku will defeat Lawan before 1pm in the afternoon election day

He has obviously said the truth. No APC candidate right now can stand Atiku because he has covered North East which will produce most of the highest voting numbers in any election.
The major issue is that Ahmed Lawal is not strong enough for Atiku.
Tinubu/Osinbanjo/Ameachi v Atiku is a complete transfer of presidency to PDP because Atiku will get victory through Northern votes while the APC candidate will be left with divided votes from South, East and West.
PDP has played a very interesting move so now it is left for APC to deliver a strong North Easterner that can divide the Northern votes with Atiku.
