PDP May Win These 4 States Before 2023 General Election

Some few days ago, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) won the Edo State gubernatorial election with a landslide. Just like some pundits rightly affirmed, the victory was not because Godwin Obaseki had a sterling performance in office but because the citizens are generally not comfortable with the All Progressives Congress (APC) led federal government.

I believe that this resentment is a nationwide one and it will probably reflect in the coming elections across the country. Specifically, there are four governorship elections billed to hold between now and 2023 elections and APC should not expect to win any of them in a free and fair poll. Of course, with the Nigerian configuration, if APC doesn't win, it means the PDP will have the day.

Here are some of the reasons I believe PDP will own the day those states:

Ondo State

Rotimi Akeredolu, the incumbent Governor, performed far below expectations. Former Governor Olusegun Mimiko had raised the bar of governance in the state before the emergence of Akeredolu. Unfortunately, the latter didn't mention up to standard.

Also, there are internal issues in the APC at present. It is certain that there are enemies from within who will work against the victory of the party. The PDP also suffered the same fate in 2016.

More so, Eyitayo Jegede, the gubernatorial candidate of the PDP is really loved by the people. An average Ondo citizen is excited about his candidacy. I understand the zoning formula may work against him but many people are not even thinking about zoning; they just want someone who will reduce the school fees of higher institutions, develop the state fairly and change their fortunes.

Agboola Ajayi might have been a force to reckon with had it been that he was vying under a party with a formidable structure across the state.

Anambra State

In 2021, Anambra will conduct its own election. Well, the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) should not thinking of retaining the seat with its weak structures. The people are impatient to get rid of the incumbent.

The Peter Obi factor will play a huge role in the emergence of the next Governor of the state. Peter Obi has a political agenda at the federal level come 2023 and it will not be palatable if his state is under another political party. So, the time has come for him to win!

More so, people from the South-East believe more in the PDP than the APC. So, this is an advantage that Peter Obi will build on.

Ekiti State

The greatest mistake Governor Kayode Fayemi made was to push Segun Oni out of the APC. As of today, Segun Oni is the most popular aspiring candidate for the 2022 gubernatorial election.

In addition to the national resentment towards the APC, the party at the state level is currently neck-deeped in crisis. I understand the PDP is also is in crisis but one can't compare both cases. They are clearly different. If the APC doesn't get its house together before the polls, they will lose the South-West state. The APC is becoming unpopular daily.

Osun State

Osun State citizens are simply fed up of the present dispensation despite all the effort of Governor Oyetola. They want to try the PDP once more! The people are resolute about this resolve. It seems the people want to have a new taste of governance after almost a decade of being under the leadership of the APC.

Also, the innovative governance by Seyi Makinde in the neighboring Oyo State will have an effect on the outcome of the election.

Well, this is Nigeria where remote can be used to control elections from Aso Rock. Let's hope we get it right as a nation someday.
