- This was hinted at by a tweet from El-rufai's son, Bashir on Sunday, January 17
Bashir, one of the sons of Mallam Nasir El-rufai has hinted at the possibility of his father contesting on a joint ticket with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
While Mallam El-rufai currently presides over Kaduna as the state's chief executive, Tinubu holds the distinct title of being the national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Bashir, a controversial figure on social media after his documented and constant disagreements with several people, tweeted a photo of his dad and Tinubu with the caption ''Southwest & Northwest. A sacrosanct alliance for the betterment of Nigeria!''
As of the time of this report, Bashir's tweet had gotten over 200 retweets and almost 1,000 likes from his followers.
Some of his followers also commented on his tweet and photo. While some agreed with the proposed alliance, others dismissed it as dead on arrival.

“Sorry, a Muslim-Muslim ticket in 2023 won’t fly. Nigeria is not Kaduna. Northeast is next. Osibanjo/Zulum is your next ticket otherwise APC will lose badly. Finally, sorry to be the bearer of bad news but of a truth: El-Rufai is a no-no in the south.”

“This will be a nightmare to many, experience + doggedness! However, El-rufai must have to adjust some of his principles in order to succeed at the top. Buhari had to do the same to get on track.”

“Do we have only northwest and southwest in Nigeria? Let's try another option. Why not Zulum and Rotimi Amaechi?”

“That's a Muslim-Muslim ticket. Not good for Nigerian Christians. I know how they think. Amaechi and El-rufai is the best combination for me.”

“God forbid! El-rufai is not controllable. He only believes in his opinion, others are secondary.”
Meanwhile, a former governor of Kano state and current chairman, Senate committee on Independent Electoral Commission, Senator Kabiru Gaya has expressed his desire for the southern region of the country to produce the next president of Nigeria.
The senator representing Kano south senatorial district in the National Assembly said that with the completion of President Muhammadu Buhari’s eight-year tenure in 2023, it would be unfair for the north to vie for the nation’s number one position again.
In a related development, the new leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo has said that its main priority is to produce a Nigerian president of Igbo extraction in 2023.
The newly elected spokesman of the foremost Igbo socio-cultural group, Alex Ogbonna, made this known during an interview with a national newspaper.
