On your marks, get set, …GO, that was how we grew up when partaking in a competition. This countdown signifies the beginning of a contest.
It is a three-command start when racing: on your mark (get on your lane/spot): get set (get to starting position): then go! (MOVE AHEAD)
The great race to 2023 has already begun; as we speak all competitors have positioned themselves on their lane awaiting the final word…GO.
Tinubu this, Tinubu that, Jagaban this and Jagaban that. What is the issue with Tinubu that we no longer can’t hear a word anymore? If Tinubu is not featured in the discussion then the subject of discussion is not related to Nigerian politics.
So why always Tinubu?
Truth be told when it comes to presidential elections it is not a tea party and it requires not only the most experienced hands it also involves one with deep pockets who is widely accepted across the six Geo-political zones.
Forget all this new development of a youthful candidate for the 2023 presidency, demographics is what determines the winner, not sentiment and social media bravado. Abi, when you witnessed the just concluded United States presidential elections, was your mate featured as a contestant? (lol for those below 60)
The North is not keen about your youthful representation or too young to rule mantra for the PRESIDENCY their interest is what matters to them, abi did you see them protesting in the North during the last #EndSARS uprising that almost swallowed the Nation?
Or is the 40-year-old candidate going to be president without votes coming from Kano?
Moreover, there is a conspiracy theory that when money is thrown around for these youthful agitators they would come for each other’s jugular and tear themselves apart.
Please do not twist my narrative as the new mantra of power must change hands to the youths can work for every other elective position even up to the Governorship race, but mark my words the presidency is way beyond just wishful thinking.
The youth capable of uprooting the ELDERS from Aso Rock is not yet available; if you critically look inwards we do not have the right YOUTH presently with the charisma, the charm, the money, the clout and the international backing to be president of the greatest black nation on Earth.
The word Jagaban is a traditional title meaning “Leader of warriors” and today in politics if you mention JAGABAN it depicts one with deft political manoeuvres.
This is courtesy of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu the Jagaban of Borgu.
As political pundits are busy brandishing Tinubu upadan like he is the founder and originator of the problems in Nigerian they have forgotten to take a critical look at the likely implosion of the PDP ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
Like earlier stated the Presidency is not for learners. Today the PDP has three major interests in the party or power blocs rather as the 2023 presidency draws close.
The Atiku frontiers, the Saraki warriors and the loyal armed forces with allegiance to Nyesom Wike.
The South-East, unfortunately, are still not in the picture of the whole plot and herein lies the first major problem. Already the Ebonyi State Governor Dave Umahi has joined the APC ahead of the 2023 presidential elections, according to Umahi he’s done with the PDP and has ported!
Umahi is preparing to carry along a large chunk of supporters along to the APC thereby depleting the PDP in the South-East.
Wike on the other hand is considered brutish and unsuitable for the top job, his recent stint with members of IPOB might be an albatross to him at a later date.
To become the President is not only about ordering traditional Rulers upadan or issuing threats at will, but it also involves having a strong CONNECT in all 36 States of the Federation. Wike is seen as an enemy of the Igbos as we speak presently.
The worse issue is that Wike might not even be considered as a Vice-Presidential candidate because of his alleged brute character, he’s considered as a FOE already if even granted the privilege.
Can Wike be vice-president and yet still be humble like GEJ was to Yar’Adua or an Osinbajo to Buhari?
Saraki on the other hand is cool and well calculated but seems to lack home support like before.
Imagine the Former Senate President since his last electoral loss has not stepped his feet in Ilorin till last weekend when he visited home to attend his late dad’s 8-year Fidau Prayer.
A serious contender for the office of the president would not neglect his people just because he failed to return to the Senate after all his family seems to be the highest political beneficiary in Kwara State thus far.
Atiku, on the other hand, looks good to carry the day in PDP but may ruffle feathers.

Suffice it to say that the PDP faces a likely implosion that may question the foundation of the party as it approaches the 2023 Presidency.
As the naysayers go about distorting the narratives around Bola Ahmed Tinubu they should also look inwards and pray that the PDP remains united and pose a strong threat to the ruling APC as the umpire finally screams the final word GO.
