2023:Why Tinubu Remains The Only Force To Contend With As Apathy Hits Presidential Aspirants By Osigwe Omo-Ikirodah

“No matter how fantastic the seed is, the soil will determine its yield”…

I stormed on this aforementioned quote today and one thing struck my mind or rather one person came across my mind, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu the former Lagos State Governor.

You know whatever product you think you have to market the soil matters a lot on how it germinates. These few days one major topic dominant on the lips of Nigerians is Tinubu’s eligibility to contest the 2023 presidential elections.

It is quite funny that Tinubu tops all the headlines and permutations as regards the presidential election, political pundits like us who earn a living from forecasting political events are surprised that Nigerians have not started asking where are the other Candidates?

You see, the argument we have today is centred on if Tinubu is the best choice or not? If Tinubu deserves to succeed Buhari or not, these people involved in this arguments are not mentioning other possible candidates, why has no one bothered to ask where are your aspirants?

The elections are close you should be seen marketing your products but instead, you are bogged down with Tinubu’s fever, where are your candidates?

In every competition, the competitors dictate the pace of debates on who is better qualified for the job. For example, millions of Nigerians are qualified to contest the seat of the presidency by virtue of the laid down requirements.

Now the aspirants pedigree is what comes into play here to assess who is worthy of the trust of the electorates.

So if we agree that millions of Nigerians are qualified for the office of the President and the relevant authorities in charge of stamping their eligibility like the political parties and electoral bodies alongside the security agencies have given a clean bill on the aspirants then the only logical debate to be involved in is a comparison of the aspirants.

It would be hypocritical arguing DUMBLY with an ignoramus when the principal bodies like INEC, the Courts, EFCC and co have given the aspirants a clean bill of health.

So again show me your aspirant and lets us compare and contrast who is better?

Of course, there are thousands of choices out there that are very competitive to succeed Buhari but would their fantastic fruits yield a bountiful harvest? There is one thing to have a good product to sell for the presidential election then there is another thing for the soil to determine if the product would yield a bountiful harvest.

Competency and ability to Germinate are the keywords here. In a situation whereby the product is FANTABULOUS and the SOIL is Fertile then we technically have a MONOPOLISTIC product.

Since there is apathy amongst presidential aspirants I would go straight to the point and list why I say Tinubu remains the only force to contend with as we approach the 2023 presidential elections.

Like what Otunba Olatunji said, no aspirant would want to set fire on the tons of money he has somewhere, knowing fully well that the Jagaban may likely feature in the 2023 presidential election.

Isn’t it funny that as we speak all potential presidential aspirants are glued to the political activities of BAT to see how well they can read his body language?

Tinubu is the most competent amongst the crowd when it comes to leadership which makes the major fulcrum of governance, Tinubu has the diplomatic exposure, patriotism, acceptability, experience, influence, charisma and above all the resources to stage a world-class presidential campaign that would be the envy of every successful politician anywhere in the world.

Tinubu has watered the soil with his goodwill, his human capacity development is legendary, his connectivity across the 36 States is unimaginable, the Jagaban is way too big for a match and would remain the main force to contend with in the 2023 presidential election.
