Bola Tinubu to PDP: A fruitful relationship is certain ahead of 2023 [Opinion]

OlatunjiAyo 2d

If there is something evident in Nigeria politics, it is the fact that there's no permanent friends or enemies. You can work with anybody when you have the same or similar interest when your interest does not affect my interest; nothing is permanent in Nigeria politics. Someone in party A today can move to party B tomorrow and even move back to party A before the end of the day, it's politics, and there's no crime in doing that in Nigeria.

 Movement from one political party is smooth, and when anyone has a problem with his or her political party, the best or the next route for such person is to seek the support of opposition or another political party. That's not new in Nigeria politics, and it is a common trend which has been in existence since the beginning of our democracy.

 The recent and significant defections are that of 7 governors from People Democratic Party named G7 led by the then Governor of Rivers Rotimi Amaechi to join the All Progressive Congress before the 2015 election. Also, the Bukola Saraki decision to decamped from the ruling party to an opposition People Democratic Party ahead of the 2019 election was also another significant movement in the political arena. Hardly will any administration finished a tenure in Nigeria without a substantial defection from one political party to another.

Only a few of Nigeria prominent politicians had been in one political party since the beginning of the new democracy in 1999 till date.

 The defection of Atiku Abubakar from All Progressive Congress to People Democratic Party to contest for President can also be tagged another big move in the political circle. Atiku Abubakar left the ruling party a bead of 2007 election for Action Congress to contest for the office of the President and he returned to the party prior to 2011 election. Atiku left the party again in his bid to be the President of Nigeria despite a lot of accusation against the party by Abubakar Atiku, he returned to the part again prior to 2019 election and was made the flag bearer of the party in 2019 General Election.

The latest is the movement of the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki decision to join the People Democratic Party and the Deputy Governor of Ondo state to change from the ruling APC to opposition PDP in his state ahead of 2020 election in both states.

 The reasons for most defections are similar. They are always in a bid to secure a ticket for maybe bigger ambition or to return to the same post which is under threat. Atiku joined APC because of his interest to be President and joined PDP back due to the same enthusiasm after APC failed to listen to him. Saraki left APC after four years for some reason and returned to People Democratic party that he left four years ago, and Godwin Obaseki joined PDP because of his interest in contesting for Edo state number 1 citizen.

 With the present problem in APC and a sign that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Position to contest for the office of the President might be under threat in the ruling party due to the internal political crisis in the party. Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is free to follow the suit of others in achieving his aim. Although, he hasn't decamped from one party to another since the beginning of the new Democracyin 1999 except for the merging of his political party, Action Congress of Nigeria ( ACN ) with some other political parties to form the ruling APC before the 2015 election.

 Even when Asiwaju was the Governor of Lagos state and the People Democratic Party were controlling the majority of states in the country and federal government, Bola Ahmed Tinubu didn't dine with them. Even thou he was the only Governor that's not in from PDP in his region at some point, Asiwaju didn't submit to the pressure of PDP. He played his game and gained control of the area entirely, from the only Governor that's not PDP at some point to no PDP governor in the south-west.

 Bola Tinubu might have said some bad words against PDP in the past. PDP might have accused Bola Tinubu of some wrongdoings before the present moment, just like others have done before merging and Nigerians failed to use it against them. Bola Ahmed Tinubu and PDP should be calm that Nigerians have short memories and forget things quickly.

 Working together of both Tinubu and PDP is possible. It can be fruitful for them. As a matter of fact, Bola Ahmed Tinubu will be an addition to any political party and will be a significant disadvantage to his old political party. 

 What do you think? Should Bola Ahmed Tinubu consider PDP? Can we say they have too many bad blood and cannot work together? Are there no permanent enemies in politics indeed?

 Do you think with Bola Ahmed Tinubu PDP can win 2023 election?

 Can APC achieve anything without Bola Ahmed Tinubu?

 What is your say?
