National spread: Tinubu, Atiku, Obi, others face tough hurdles

The Nigerian presidential election is less than one month away, and the political parties and their candidates are making the most of the few remaining weeks to campaign and sell their ideas to millions of Nigerians. So far, each of the 18 political parties that have registered with the government has made a clear statement about how they believe Nigeria should be run during the next four years. This largely explains why all 18 political parties have candidates running for president on February 25.

Only four of the pack of 18 candidates, according to experts and bookmakers, have a chance of replacing President Major General Muhammadu Buhari (ret. ), whose second term ends on May 29 of this year. Another school of thought contends that many of the candidates are only competing for the chance to add the unofficial label of “past presidential contender” to their résumé, knowing that doing so may probably open a few doors in the future.

There is a widespread perception throughout the nation that the only candidates with a chance of winning the next presidential election in Nigeria are Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, Peter Obi of the Labour Party, and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party. It is not unexpected that these leaders have been referred to as the country’s next president in many public events over the previous few months given their political backgrounds, extensive networks, deep bank accounts, and other enabling resources. But where do these individuals stand right now in a campaign that will undoubtedly influence Nigeria’s future and that of its people?
