Blame Vice President Osinbajo, Tinubu If Another Northerner Becomes Nigerian President In 2023—Adeyanju


 

Human rights activist, Deji Adeyanju has asked Nigerians to blame Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu if the North retains power in 2023.
Both Osinbajo and Tinubu are jostling to get the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC). 





Since 1999, Tinubu and Osinbajo have enjoyed a cordial political relationship. The latter served as the attorney-general of Lagos from 1999 to 2007 when the former was the governor of the state.
It is widely believed in some quarters that Tinubu nominated Osinbajo as President Muhammadu Buhari’s running mate in 2015 as part of the political bargaining that led to the formation of APC.

Reacting to the emergence of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar as the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in a series of tweets on Sunday, Adeyanju said the North may retain power in 2023.

Some political analysts have been saying that for the APC to counter Atiku’s popularity in the North and win the presidential election, it will have to also present a northerner as its candidate. 

Adeyanju accused Tinubu and Osinbajo of being selfish and not putting the interest of others into consideration.

This will however anger many southerners who have argued that for the sake of fairness, a southerner should succeed President Muhammadu Buhari, a northerner, who would have spent eight years in office at the end of his second tenure in 2023.
