Do you think Wike is offended after PDP Presidential candidate, Atiku ignored him for Delta state governor, Okowa?
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.
Speaking at the unveiling, Atiku said one of the factors he considered was that his running mate must have Presidential qualities.
However, a trending video of the announcement shows governor Nyesom Wike conspicuously absent at PDP secretariat where Atiku Abubakar announced Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate in the 2023 Presidential election.
