A former Youth Leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Tuesday predicted a win for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 presidential election, POLITICS NIGERIA reports.
According to Adeyanju, the PDP is not a serious opposition party.
“My prediction for 2023 is that the APC will win. The PDP is an unserious opposition. They are also not ready to change,” Adeyanju wrote on his known Twitter handle.
Two weeks to the nomination of presidential candidates for the 2023 General Election, 40 aspirants remain in the races for the tickets of the two dominant parties in Nigeria.
Twenty-five of the aspirants submitted the expression of interest and nomination forms they bought for N100 million from the APC at the close of the submission of the forms last Friday.
Some of the aspirants, who will slug it out for the APC flag at the two-day national convention of the party at the end of May, if they pass the screening and do not step down from the race, are Tunde Bakare; Cross River State Governor, Ben Ayade; his Ebonyi State counterpart, Dave Umahi; and Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi.
The opposition, PDP, concluded its screening of the aspirants who paid N40 million for its presidential nomination forms two weeks ago. Two of the aspirants were disqualified but the party is yet to officially disclose their identities.
The aspirants who stood for the screening includes: former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, a former Senate President, Bukola Saraki; Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal; and former Senate President Pius Anyim.
The 2023 presidential election will be held on 25 February.
