2023: Governor Ifeanyi Okowa unveiled as Atiku’s running mate

PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has picked Delta state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as his running mate.

He made the choice this morning June 16 after the National Working Committee of the party presented three shortlisted nominees to him. Those presented to him were Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Ifeanyi Okowa, and Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom state.

After a critical consideration, Atiku picked Okowa as his choice for a running mate. Speaking at the unveiling, Atiku said one of the factors he considered was that his running mate must have ‘presidential qualities.’
