The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has chosen Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State as Atiku’s running mate.
This comes shortly after the APC announced it’s provisional Vice President candidate.
Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa, who is the current Governor of Delta State was selected among the South-East and South-South regions serving governors and qualified politicians.
After an intense contest with Governor Nyesom Wike of Delta State, Mr Okowa was declared the winner. The decision was thought to be in the party’s interest as it seeks a re-election next year.
According to People’s Gazette, Abubakar supporters claim he chose Mr Okowa because he vowed to run a campaign based solely on issues that matter to Nigerians, and Mr Wike’s combative strategy might disrupt it.
It is also believed that the presidential candidate also wanted a running mate to help bridge the divide between the South-South and the South-East .
