2023: Best Presidential Candidate

As Nigerians know that election is at the door step in the country, every candidate is preparing for the 2023 general election by running campaign, mobilizing in one way or another and trying to convince the electorates to vote for them.

But with all these preparations from the presidential candidates, Nigerians should not forget their experience under APC/Buharis administration.

Many promises were made which never came to pass, Fulanis killings, rapping and kidnapping in every part of the country, harsh economy, unemployment and many evil act.

This is the right time to vote without sentiment, not to be tribalistic in choosing the right candidate as this is the only way to be liberated from the suffering, harsh economy and bad government for another four years.

Who is the best candidate?

Looking at the three most recognized or known presidential candidates, Asiwaju Bola Hammed Tinubu, Peter Obi and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

Asiwaju Bola Hammed Tinubu, he is well known in the Southwest, he is an indigene of Iragbiji in Osun State, but claiming Lagos State as his state of origin.

Many things about Asiwaju Bola Hammed Tinubu are questionable, from his real name, state of origin, his real age, educational history and with the last news from United State of America about his involvement in drugs.

Asiwaju Bola Hammed Tinubu was Lagos State governor for eight years, he is from the Southwest, but what has he contributed to the growth of Southwest where he came from? When the issue of Southwest security came, what was his contribution to the establishment of Amotekun, is their Amotekun Corps in Lagos State till today?

During the end SARS protest, who ordered those promising youths to be killed by the military men? Till date, the case is buried and nobody knows who ordered the killing of those supposed future leaders of tomorrow and Asiwaju Bola Hammed Tinubu was in Lagos State.

Asiwaju Bola Hammed Tinubu confronted a monarch in Osogbo the capital of Osun State that he is richer than the whole Osun State. What has he done to alleviate people of Osun State he needs their support now to come out of poverty?

From the pages of Newspapers, we read that all APC governors in Southwest he assisted to win governorship election pay him agreed percentages from the monthly allocation that comes to their various states.

There have been many fire outbreaks in South, tribal crises in South between Hausa and Southerners, and many birthdays celebrated by him, Asiwaju Bola Hammed Tinubu did not in any way share in our pain in Southwest or celebrated any of his birthdays to bring Southerners closer to himself but preferred to pitch his tent with Northerners and shared his money to buy Northerners because of his ambition.

The only time Asiwaju Bola Hammed Tinubu was seen assisting Southerners was when presidential primary for his party was at the door step and Fulanis attacked a church in Owo, Ondo State. Ordinarily, for that incident, Asiwaju Bola Hammed Tinubu supposed to call for the postponement of the exercise, but he gave the affected victims money.

If he becomes Nigeria president, Nigeria will become a very good market for him to trade and make more money. Lives of the youths will mean nothing as it happened at Lekki Toll-Gate in Lagos State under APC/Buhari government and every other part of the country. remember, this SARS started during PDP time, why and how did they become blood sucking officers/unit of the police force under APC/Buharis time? Topic for another day.

Today, Lagos-Ibadan express way has become another Kaduna-Abuja express way as kidnapping is now rampant on the road.

People are asking what is Tinubu doing to put to stop all these evil things in the South and as this is close to Lagos State where APC Presidential candidate comes from.

Next is Peter Obi. Peter Obi would have been the best candidate to become the next president of Nigeria if votes on social media can be used. Majority of his followers are youths and Igbos without PVC.

Peter Obi was Alhaji Atikus running mate in the year 2019 under People Democratic Party, he left the party to go for the president in year 2023 under Labour Party.

The question is what make him better than Alhaji Atiku Abubakar? He left PDP and join Labour Part in less than a year and started campaigning against PDP, what idea has he gotten outside People Democratic Party in less than a year to run the affairs of the country differently?

Another question is during his time as governor of his state, what did he achieve that he can use to campaign? If for good eight years he achieved nothing in his state, what will he offer Nigerians except to mismanage our resources.

Lastly, news has been going on and on about his bold step to send back northerners from his state to North during his time. Does he think that votes from his state or few states can make him emerge as Nigeria president without support from the North, will Northers not pay him back now?

Talking about Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, he was a vice president for eight years. During the time of People Democratic Party, things were better by far than in the time of APC as we are experiencing now.

Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is a business man who did not choose politics as profession, he has clean records both within and outside the country.

Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is a unifier, he has things to do with all the tribes and region which make him loved by all the tribe. People should remember that it was only PDP candidate as president that ever reduced fuel price in Nigeria.

Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is coming to make things better and make system work again. He is bringing experience from business world to put things straight, to restructure and to make Nigeria an envious nation among the developed nations.

In his campaign in year 2019, he said he would sell NNPC, Nigerians condemned him for suggesting what will make things work in the nation, but same NNPC has been turned to PLC by APC. Electricity in Nigeria is worse than how PDP left it.

If Alhaji Atiku Abubakar could be given opportunity now as the sincerest, objective and straight forward candidate who will not politicize everything but be sincere with the masses, to tell the nation what he has in store for them and carry it out if he wins 2023 presidential election, Nigeria will grow again.

Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is not like those who promised in year 2015 to equate dollar with naira and today, dollar is eight hundred plus to a naira. To build refineries and non is working till today.

Nigerians, let us join hands together and vote for Unifier, one better Nigeria. Vote for People Democratic Party, Vote for the best presidential candidate, Vote for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
