Reno Omokri, a former presidential aide to Goodluck Jonathan, has suggested the reason Northerners would listen to President Muhammadu Buhari and vote for APC chieftain Bola Tinubu in the upcoming 2023 election.
According to the political activist, Buhari has 12 million followers who are ready to obey his command in voting for Tinubu in the presidential election.
Omokri advised the PDP via a tweet to choose a Northern presidential candidate so the party could stand a chance of returning to power.
He wrote: “Buhari has always had a captive audience of 12 million Northerners.
“If PDP fields a Southerner in 2023, his 12 million captive audience will obey Buhari’s command to vote for Tinubu. And he will win. The only way they won’t obey him is if the PDP fields a Northerner!”
Naija News report that the president is yet to declare his support for any presidential aspirant.
Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it would reveal the identities of the presidential aspirants disqualified by the party’s Screening Committee on Friday.
The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Debo Ologunagba, made this disclosure in an interview with The Punch on Saturday.
