WHO DOES THE CAP FIT??? Osinbajo, Tinubu, Bakare, To Battle For The APC 2023 Presidential Ticket

An analysis by The Africa Report, suggests that Nigeria’s 2023 Presidential race, especially within the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, will be down to the trio of Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, Pastor Tunde Bakare, and the APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu.
According to the analysis, Tinubu is already picking up endorsements from Nigerians in the corridors of power, who want a bite of the proverbial national cake.
The comment of Babachir Lawal, the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, who recently described Tinubu as someone who is fit to lead modern Nigeria, was referred.

Atiku’s defeat reportedly caused uncertainty in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as the Leaders commence plans ahead of 2023. The report also mentioned the recent tactic endorsement of Celebrity Journalist and Columnist, Dele Momodu, who seems to have bought into the Tinubu Presidential project.
Last month, a Campaign Office purportedly for the 2023 Presidential ambition of Tinubu, was opened in Osun State.
The Campaign Office has pictures of Tinubu, as well as his name written all over the place with a massive banner with the inscription: “Tinubu 2023 Non-Negotiable”.
Recently, Pastor Bakare threw a brickbat at Tinubu, complaining about the gargantuan levels of corruption since he was Governor of Lagos State, and installed his protégés.

Bakare is said to see himself as a rival to Tinubu. In a 2015 interview, the fiery Preacher said that he had been pressured in the run-up to the elections in 2011, by unnamed Politicians, to sign a dated resignation letter. The deal was designed to make Bakare go quietly, should that prove necessary for Buhari’s handlers.
Osinbajo is also believed to be the victim of a concerted effort to reduce his goodwill and sellability, ahead of 2023.
“Some whisper that Osinbajo’s erstwhile political benefactor, Tinubu, is at the centre of that campaign”, the report noted.

Osinbajo told the Press, at the latter’s birthday Colloquium, earlier this year, that Tinubu’s political trajectory has just begun.
“The Vice President, Osinbajo, will have the last laugh – they think I am stupid – except he has violated his oath”, Pastor Bakare said while speaking of the Vice President’s political ordeal, recently.
“The dynamics among the Lagos trio – Osinbajo, Tinubu, and Bakare, point to a deal to pass the Presidency on to the South-West, after Buhari leaves.
“That may cause resentment in the South-South and South-East geopolitical zones, which have produced one President each, and are less favoured than the other geopolitical zones.
“The bottom line: In 2023, good governance may take second place to the politics of patronage and personality, as more wealthy contenders vie for the Presidency”, the report concluded.
