2023 Presidency: Any Northern Candidate That Contest Will Lose – Chekwas Okorie


The National Chairman of the United Progressive Party (UPP), Chief Chekwas Okorie, has said the idea of a northern president in 2023 will not fly.

According to him, the arrangement for the rotational presidency in Nigerian politics had become conventional even though qualified citizens from all parts of the country were entitled to run for the nation’s top job each election circle.

We recall that Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai had suggested that zoning of political offices based on the region should be de-emphasized because Nigeria could not continue on that path.

Reacting in a press statement on Monday, Okorie said: “I have always had the position that Nigeria does not have a constitution that has provided for rotation of power. But, at the same time, the rotational arrangement has become conventional.

It is that rotational convention that made it easier for President Buhari to defeat a sitting president in 2015 because 2015 was widely perceived as the turn of a northerner to become president. Since President Buhari towered above every other person from the North, he won.

“In the build-up to 2019, the UPP as a party – the party I lead – we knew that any person running for president from the South would be swimming against the tide. So, we decided to allow the North to complete its eight years, by not fielding a candidate for the presidential election, and that was what happened.

“It is that same convention that Nigeria would observe by 2023. Nevertheless, that doesn’t stop any person from the North wishing to run, but the person will never be able to win the presidential election.

Such persons will be like those southerners who ran in 2019 and never stood any chance of winning.
