2023: Tinubu, Kwankwaso, Ekweremadu may lead regional parties



AHEAD of the presidential primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC) indications have emerged that a former governor of Lagos State and national leader of APC, Bola Tinubu; former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi; and national leader of New Nigeria Peoples Party, Rabiu Kwankwaso, may spearhead regional parties pending outcome of primaries that would take place this weekend.

  Meanwhile, reports are awash in media that Obi has been discussing with the NNPP but has not joined the party.

A source close to Kwankwaso confirmed the reports.

  “It is not official, but that rumour is going on. I’m not sure if he (Obi) has reached out to us. You know his resignation was just today (Wednesday). But I know they have been discussing it with Kwankwaso even before now. What might happen is that the politics of 2023 might turn to regional politics.

  The NNPP is already strong in the North. There is a possibility that Ike Ekweremadu, Enyinnaya Abaribe and Peter Obi might form an alliance under another party in the South East. If Asiwaju Bola Tinubu doesn’t get the APC ticket, he might also go back to South-West with the Social Democratic Party. So, these three parties might become the big parties representing the regions in 2023,” he said.
