2023: Atiku is the best candidate, No Southerner can win - Raymond Dokpesi

Prominent PDP chieftain, Raymond Dokpesi, has declared support for former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, to emerge Nigeria's next president in 2023.

According to the Africa Independent Television (AIT)  broadcasting station founder, no southern candidate can win the 2023 presidential election.

Dokpesi made the assertion known during a media interview on Saturday, October 9. 

"There is no candidate from the southeast, even I dare say there is no candidate from the south that you put in the north today that will be able to win. It is going to be a humongous challenge," he said when asked if he was supporting the call or not for his party to present a presidential candidate from the South-East in 2023.

The PDP chieftain however added that whoever emerges the next president must compensate the South-East.

He said the PDP must sort for candidate from the Northern region, stressing that former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, have all it takes to lead the country in 2023.

Meanwhile, Atiku has canvassed the retention of the zoning of the presidential ticket to the North as he made this known during the opening session of the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting.

He recalled how he ignored pressures from the then PDP governors to contest for the 2023 presidential ticket of the party, in a bid to frustrate the re-election bid of ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo.
