Kwankwaso beneath Pressure from Northern leaders to step down for Atiku

In the run-up to the general elections in 2023, well-known Northern leaders and forces are putting plans into motion to make certain that the region fields a single, unified candidate for the presidency.

Atiku Abubakar, candidate for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and a former vice president, has been revealed to be one of the most popular candidates among a number of North African leaders, according to separate interactions with insiders.

The statement that “our people have resolved to adopt a consensus candidate for 2023, and the person they have chosen is former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, the PDP candidate,” was reportedly made by a supply who spoke to newsmen.

The source, a senior member of the Northern Elders Forum, asserted that Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the previous vice president of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), and presidential candidate for the party, has been under pressure from Northern leaders to withdraw his candidature for president of Nigeria.

The supply stated, “I can tell you that our leaders in the North have begun taking steps to pressure Senator Kwankwaso to abandon his bid for the presidency in favour of Atiku Abubakar.” “I can tell you that our leaders in the North have begun taking steps,” the supply said.

Findings from within the Kwankwaso camp confirmed that the former governor of Kano State had withstood pressure and vowed to proceed with his campaign regardless of it. This was one of the conclusions drawn from the findings.

The previous governor of Kano, according to a supply distributed throughout the NNPP, “has been inundated with calls and visits from prominent leaders in the North to withdraw his bid for Waziri (Atiku’s traditional title), but he (the previous governor of Kano) has remained adamant.”

According to the source, Kwankwaso’s reluctance will not be unrelated to the events leading up to his departure from the PDP, which those who were close to him claimed was a fairly contentious decision.

According to the source, it will be challenging for Madugu (Kwankwaso) to support the PDP because of the way in which some of Alhaji Atiku’s supporters treated him while he was there.

When pressed to be more specific about the opportunities available to the former minister, an insider responded, “I think even if he drops his bid, the only person Madugu would back is Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.” This response came in response to the question of whether or not such a possibility is even possible. “Such a possibility is very remote.”
