Okowa Likely to be Announced Atiku’s Running Mate

As Atiku, the Presidential candidate for the PDP, prepares to officially announce his running mate, news trickling in suggests that the announcement may shock many. It was almost a foregone conclusion that Atiku’s running mate would be Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State.

Wike was very vocal and confident prior to the convention in which Atiku emerged the party’s flagbearer. Wike had boasted that he was sure to clinch the party’s presidential ticket. However, he only managed a distant second.

Many therefore took it for granted that Wike was the most likely candidate as he checks all the boxes required of a suitable running mate. Recently though, there have been insinuations that he may actually not be the anointed one.

According to information revealed by Premium Times, Atiku’s running mate appears to have been found in the person of Ifeanyi Okowa, the governor of Delta State.

This news will be confirmed in the next few hours.
