Editor's note: Danladi Usman, a political and public affairs analyst, based in Kano state, writes on the chances of Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo, SAN succeeding President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2023 presidential election.

A stage for national debates on who succeeds the incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari, seems to have been finally set by the former head of state, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, over his submission on the pressing national issues, top of which was the coming 2023 presidential election and who the ideal candidate should be.

The former military President, General Babangida, fondly called IBB, had listed out qualities Nigerians should look out for in the possible successor of President Buhari, when he played up a new angle to the 2023 presidential election debates, during an exclusive interview on the Arise News Channel, last week.

Usman believes Osinbajo will be the ideal national consensus presidential candidate in 2023.
