“If he really is a unifier, as he claims, he would be the first person to ensure that the PDP presidency goes south in accordance with the PDP constitution.”

Adeagbo claimed that if Atiku wins the 2023 presidential election, it will mean another northerner will rule Nigeria for eight years, contrary to the southern call for the presidency.

“Giving power back to the North, I don’t think that’s a demonstration of unification.”

He goes on to predict Tinubu’s chances in the south, where it is perceived as a Christian majority.

“If you look at Tinubu’s political personality, the South will give him votes, especially the Southwest. I think his metric problems, as far as votes go, are not in the South, the problem is in the North, and I think that’s why the whole party chose Shettima.”

What should Nigerians watch out for in 2023?

He urged voters to look beyond the same belief map to look at competence and willingness to deliver.

“And I believe that beyond religion, we voters should look to candidates’ competence and willingness to perform … It should go beyond the same belief card.”

He said:

“I do not subscribe to this belief and this claim. Peter Obi is a Nigerian citizen, as are other candidates, they are all qualified to hold the position. So I don’t think it was driven by religion.”

He quickly found out that the presidential candidate of the Action Alliance, Omoyele Sowore, is also a Christian.

“Sowore, I believe, is also a Christian.”
