Atiku Picks Okowa as Running Mate

Former Vice President of Nigeria, and People Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate for the forthcoming 2023 general election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has announced Delta State governor, H.E Ifeanyi Okowa, as his running mate. Following the announcement of Gov Okowa as running to Atiku Abubakar, opinions have decided among Nigeria political analysts, some see him as a weak choice for the ticket.

Over the past few days, Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has been rumoured to have been the top choice consensus candidate among the PDP’s governors with Okowa & Gov Edom coming second and third respectively.

However, as part of the party’s way of pushing everything forward to the general market, Atiku had to pick his preferred candidates among the listed names from the southern part of the country.

According to him, he reportedly said that it was a difficult decision for him of picking Gov Okowa. After meeting with the screening committee on Thursday, he declared Governor Okowa as his candidate at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja. Governor Okowa, according to Alhaji Atiku, possesses all of the traits he seeks in a deputy.

In his opinion, a Vice President must be able to support the President and act appropriately while he is not present. The former Vice President also stated that the party had provided him with competent options, leaving him with a difficult task.

However, powerful PDP blocs backed by Seyi Makinde, Segun Mimiko, Ayodele Fayose, and others preferred Nyesom Wike, as a strong ticket to win over the ruling party, All Progressive Congress, APC in the coming election.

However, opinions have divided among Nigerians over the choice of Okowa as running mate to Atiku, as many see him as a weaker candidate like Peter Obi, in 2019.
