The intrigues characterising the political landscape in the country, is a big concern for political actors. Politicians in the two leading political parties in the country, have returned to the drawing board. They are now strategising on how to gain political advantage over the other. Many political analysts have asserted that, whatever plays out in the APC will go a long in determining how 2023 electioneering will go.
The national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is among the political few that, make things happen both in APC and the entire political domain in the country. Recently, series of news have been going round about the persecution of Tinubu’s political godsons in the party, across the country. Some have even been advising Tinubu to move to other party, to actualise his presidential ambition, come 2023. Well, I believe Tinubu is a highly tactical politician. He knows when and how to move. Tinubu is a confirmed progressive, who has rejected all temptations to go off the track. He would rather resign from active politics than joining forces with the PDP, to wrestle power from the APC in 2023. PDP is a party he has dealt with politically and ruthlessly. So, going into the PDP is like commuting political suicide.
The candid advice to Tinubu is to remain in the APC and slog it out with his opponents in the party. In other way, he may as well form another party, he and his supporters will be able to control without interference. He will be in the party and continue maintaining his political relevance. For sure, majority of his foot soldiers will definitely follow him to build the party with him. The outstanding thing about Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is that, he has successfully empowered many politicians like Rep Gbajabiamila, Senator Adeola Solomon (Yayi), Babatunde Raji Fashola, Engnr Rauf Aregbesola and a host of others. These politicians will not hesitate to move into the new party with him.
What the APC leadership should be contemplating about is, what will happen to the APC in the Southwest, if Tinubu eventually leaves the party. Lastly, Tinubu will find it more pleasing to float a new party and continue his political dominance of southwest political landscape. Conveniently, Tinubu will be able to secure the decamping of three APC governors in the southwest. Automatically, his exit from the APC will definitely reduce the rank of APC in the National Assembly and state Houses of Assembly across the country.
Do you think Tinubu can achieve his presidential aspiration, contesting on another political platform?
