A Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Board of Trustee, BoT, member, Chief Ebenezer Babatope, has stated that the All Progressives Congress, APC, will field another Northern presidential candidate to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

Babatope claimed that Southerners in the APC were deceiving themselves that Buhari will handover to them in 2023.

Speaking with Independent on Sunday, he claimed that the North would find it difficult to relinquish power after Buhari’s second tenure.

As stated by Babatope: Whatever happens inside the APC is their headache. Some of our brothers in the South-West have been deceiving themselves that somebody from the South-West will be nominated by their party for the 2023 presidential election.

But they are merely deceiving themselves because the North will not let go easily and, as such, they will not allow the South-West to field a candidate.

So, if our South-West brothers in the APC think the North will hand over to them in 2023, they are only deceiving themselves.

They will never hand over power to them or allow them to contest election. After Buhari, they will field another Northerner. All I can do is to wish them well.
