PDP Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has picked Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State as his running mate in the 2023 General election.
The former Vice President arrived at this decision on Thursday morning, June 16, after he was asked to choose between three shortlisted candidates by the National Working Committee of the party.
They handpicked Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Ifeanyi Okowa, and Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom state.
After critically evaluating the candidates, Atiku choose Okowa as his running mate and said it’s because he has “presidential qualities”.
At the unveiling ceremony, it was said that the choice is in the best interest of the party.
Meanwhile, Nigerians are still waiting for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the flagbearer of the ruling party, All Progressives Congress party (APC), to pick his running mate
