Tolu Ogunlesi, the Special Assistant on New Media to President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday said there are “no other alternatives for 2023” than the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
According to the presidential aide, the APC and the PDP are the only two political parties that are truly capable of producing Nigeria’s next president.
Recall that the likes of Omoyele Sowore, Aisha Yesufu and Kingsley Moghalu have been campaigning against the two major political parties. However, Ogunlesi says it is “wishful thinking”.
“2022 is going to be very interesting. A lot of previously-disguised partisanship is going to suddenly reach its expiry date,” he wrote on his verified Facebook page.
“Wind will blow like crazy and what happened to chicken bottom in 1834 will happen again.
“Also, many of the ‘Say No to APC and PDP’ camp will realize there may be (actually, realistically) no other alternatives for 2023.
“The two parties have paid their dues and built the only political machines (imperfect as they might be) that can currently deliver the next President of Nigeria.
“Everything else is wishful thinking. Which is probably valid too, as long as it is recognized for what it is.”
