2023 Presidency: New Permutation Shows States Atiku May Lose, and Why

2023 Presidency: New Permutation Shows States Atiku May Lose, and Why

  • The 2023 general elections may end up woeful for the PDP going by a number of factors outlined by Ayo Fayose
  • Fayose had stated that the opposition party has a slim chance (if any at all) of winning the southwest and southeast states in 2023
  • The former Ekiti governor also opined that his party may be floored in the northeast since that is where Kashim Shettima, the APC's vice presidential candidate, comes from

There are pointers that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stands to lose quite a lot of states in the coming general elections due to the internal tussle and unrest heated up by the rift between Atiku Abubakar and the PDP G-5 (Governors Nyesom Wike, Seyi Makinde, Samuel Ortom, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, and Okezie Ikpeazu).

These PDP governors are championing the call for the resignation of Iyorchia Ayu (PDP national chairman).

Meanwhile, there is a growing romance between Wike and Peter Obi, the Labour Party (LP)'s presidential flagbearer, and between him and some chieftains of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Resultantly, Atiku may lose states where the political romance is prominent in the coming presidential election.

Speaking categorically about the PDP's chances in the coming polls, Ayodele Fayose, a former Ekiti governor, on Thursday, November 17, noted that the possibility of the opposition party winning states in the southeast and southwest regions is very slim, according to reports by Sahara Reporters.

These states are:

  1. Lagos
  2. Ogun
  3. Oyo
  4. Ekiti
  5. Imo
  6. Anambra
  7. Ebonyi
  8. Abia

Fayose was quoted saying:

"Let me give you an analysis. In the southwest, people might not like to hear that, I don’t see how PDP will win. Anybody deceiving us can continue to deceive us.

“I don’t see how PDP will win in the South-East. South-South will be a combination of all interests."

Concerning the northcentral and the northeast, the former governor noted that the PDP has not done much work in the former apart from the threatening fact that the latter is where the APC's vice presidential candidate, Kashim Shettima, hails from.

States in the northcentral and the northeast include:

  1. Benue
  2. Kogi
  3. Kwara
  4. Nasarawa
  5. Niger
  6. Plateau
  7. Federal Capital Territory
  8. Adamawa
  9. Bauchi
  10. Borno
  11. Gombe
  12. Taraba
  13. Yobe

Fayose said:

“Without deceiving ourselves, there is so much work to do in the north-central. PDP and APC did not pick any candidate, either presidential or vice-presidential, from the north-central. The northeast is where the vice-presidential candidate of APC comes from."

I won’t insult Tinubu to show I don’t support him, says Fayose

Fayose had declared that he won’t insult the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, even though they are in different camps ahead of the 2023 general elections.
