The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) predicts that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), will win the 2023 presidential election in a new country report.

According to The Economist magazine’s research and analysis division, the internal crisis in the opposition party has significantly reduced the chances of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

According to the report, Atiku’s chances have been hampered by the rising popularity of Peter Obi, the candidate of the Labour Party (LP), in the southeast region, which has traditionally been the PDP’s stronghold.

The Muslim-Muslim ticket may not affect Tinubu’s chances, EIU predicts.

Tinubu’s selection of Kashim Shettima, a former governor of Borno state and a fellow Muslim, as his running mate has sparked debate within the APC and throughout Nigeria.

According to the EIU, the former Lagos state governor’s chances in the 2023 presidential election are unaffected by the same-faith ticket.

“We expect Tinubu to win the presidency, and recent developments have only reinforced our belief,” the EIU predicted. “It does not appear that a Muslim-Muslim ticket will have a significant impact on Tinubu’s electoral chances.”

Wike’s action may also affect Atiku’s chances – EIU.

Since the conclusion of the presidential primary, the PDP has been beset by internal strife.

The situation was exacerbated when Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike, Atiku’s closest primary opponent, was passed over by the PDP flag bearer, who chose Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate.

The PDP and Atiku also refused to cave in to Wike and his allies’ demand that the party’s national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, resign in the interest of justice and equity.

“Atiku has even more reason to be concerned. “Not only is Obi eroding the PDP’s support in the South-east, but Governor Wike, who finished second in the primary, does not appear to be interested in endorsing him,” the EIU said.


According to BusinessDay, despite the presence of three major political gladiators from the country’s three major ethnic groups in the presidential race, the amendment to the Electoral Act would result in fewer disputes over the presidential election result.
