The current presidential candidates in Nigeria for 2023.
As such, l would like to advise readers to discountenance the polls which have been putting Osinbajo and Peter Obi (ex two times Anambra state governor also Vice Presidential candidate to Atiku Abubakar) ahead of the pack of all the presidential aspirants in 2023. Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress party (APC) started voting early Wednesday in primaries to choose a candidate for the 2023 presidential race.
Peter Obi is our next president come 2023! The Nigerian youth has spoken ABOUT 18 months to the 2023 presidential elections, a number of Nigerian politicians are being touted as messiahs that would take the country to the promised land after the tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari. Remarkably, the PDP and APC which have been playing alternating roles as ruling and main opposition parties in the leadership of our great country since 1999 till date, appear ready to engage in another tug of war to outwit each other for the hearts and souls of Nigerians, hence two northerners may be fielded to become president of Nigeria in 2023.
Nigeria ruling All Progressives Congress party (APC) started voting early Wednesday in primaries to choose a candidate for the 2023 presidential race.\n The questions observers have been asking since the emergence of the presidential candidates are: Do we have the president Nigeria needs at this critical time from among the materials on offer? Have they demonstrated the capacity to heal the country and put it on the path of real growth and development? What are their antecedents? What are their areas of strength? What are their weaknesses?
Hence it is not surprising to me that becoming president of Nigeria in 2023, has assumed the dimension of a bazaar whereby Nigerians of all characters- including those challenged intellectually, morally and integrity wise are now staking their claim to becoming the next president of Nigeria which has practically debased the exalted office of president of Nigeria.
The observation above is derived from the fact that both parties have been equivocating and prevaricating about the zoning of the presidency or throwing it open, a process that has made becoming president of Nigeria in 2023, a very risky gamble as never witnessed before. And it may also be recalled that l had also observed in four chapters of my twelve chapters book titled: “Becoming President of Nigeria. A Citizen’s Guide”, launched in Abuja on 10th May, that the Igbos should be given the chance to produce the president of Nigeria in 2023. In the book l had also expressed heartbreak that the southeast does not have any presidential ‘materials’, that can step up to the plate. So the prospect of an Igbo presidency in 2023, may just be a mirage.
Like Tinubu, it also appears that a former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has long ago commenced campaigning for the 2023 presidential election. More than 2,300 delegates from Nigeria’s ruling party are meeting in Abuja on Tuesday, where the All Progressives Congress (APC) is holding its primaries to choose its candidate for the 2023 presidential election.
Before, anyone makes the decision to start ‘beating up on me’ literarily, let us keep in mind that, it is not me, but the leaders of both the main opposition political party, PDP, Iyorcha Ayu (in concert with the 37 wise men) and APC’s Abdulahi Adamu, who irrespective of the mood of the nation which originally is to give the Igbos a chance to be president of Nigeria, that decided to throw the 2023 presidential contest open to both northern and southern aspirants.

Ahead of the official campaign period, major candidates are to release their policy documents: Abubakar did so in late May but Obi and Tinubu have yet to unveil their policy documents.

The election process begins with primary elections and caucuses. These are two methods that states use to select a potential presidential nominee Nominee: the final candidate chosen by a party to represent them in an election.. In general, primaries use secret ballots for voting. Caucuses are local gatherings of voters who vote at the end of the meeting for a particular candidate. Then it moves to nominating conventions, during which political parties each select a nominee to unite behind. During a political party convention, each presidential nominee also announces a vice presidential running mate. The candidates then campaign across the country to explain their views and plans to voters. They may also participate in debates with candidates from other parties.

Many elections have been postponed, while others have been held with adaptation. One key aspect of the democratic process that has been thought to be affected by the pandemic is electoral campaigning. Campaigns are opportunities for political parties and candidates to spread their ideas about how public policies should change—or remain the same—in the future. Campaigns allow public conversations and deliberation about the future of the country. They allow citizens to weigh up their options when they arrive at the ballot box in a more informed way. Campaigns also play a critical performative role in democracy. They are rituals that signal that the democratic process is underway.
