Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate in the 2023 general election, has chosen Delta state governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running partner.
He made his decision this morning, June 16, after the party’s National Working Committee presented him with three shortlisted candidates. Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Ifeanyi Okowa of Ifeanyi Okowa of Akwa Ibom State, and Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom State were among those who were presented to him.
After careful thought, Atiku decided on Okowa as his running mate. At the presentation, Atiku stated that one of the considerations he evaluated was whether or not his running mate had ‘presidential qualifications.’
