2023 Presidential Election – PDP and APC Candidates
The 2020 United States presidential election marked an important period in American history. Now, as part of the 2020 election cycle, we are left to consider the 2023 Presidential Election, which will likely include candidates from both the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC).
As we eagerly await information about potential 2023 candidates from both parties, some key information has been made available to provide insight into the upcoming election. This article will explore this information and consider details about the potential candidates for both political parties.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
The PDP is one of the two major political parties that will be involved in the 2023 presidential election. Its history dates back to the 1998 presidential elections, when the former Nigerian president, Olusegun Obasanjo, joined the party. As a result, the party has come to be associated with modern, progressive leadership that appeals to a wide range of voters.
The 2016 elections saw the PDP place its candidate, Alhaji Abubakar, difficult tasks facing a nation that was dealing with an economic recession and widespread insecurity.The PDP became a major political force in the 2019 national elections, and with many of the party’s biggest figures being from the north, the party would likely eye individuals from that region for their 2023 presidential candidate.
The All Progressives Congress (APC)
The All Progressives Congress (APC) is the other major political party in Nigeria, and it,too, is positioned to field a 2023 Presidential Election candidate. The APC has experienced a tumultuous history since its formation in 2013, when it formed out of a merger between major political parties from the different geopolitical regions of Nigeria.
The controversial removal of the former Nigerian president, Mohammadu Buhari, in 2019, put the APC in an awkward position, but the selection of Yemi Osinbajo as the VP candidate has provided the party with some unexpected popular appeal.
While the APC’s 2023 presidential election nominee isn’t yet clear, it is likely to be a party stalwart who will champion the party’s values of economic progress, increased security and social cohesion.
Although the names of the 2023 presidential election candidates from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have yet to be determined, these parties have welcomed familiar faces and new talent dedicated to furthering the causes of their respective political believes. As we continue to look for indicators about who will run for the presidency in 2023, this article should provide insight into the potential landscape of the election.
In conclusion, the 2023 Presidential Elections will include potential candidates from two major Nigerian political parties: the People Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressive Congress (APC). While information on potential candidates from each party is still pending, this article should provide a helpful overview of the parties involved and what kind of visions they hope to pursue in the 2023 election.
