Sunday May 29, 2022
The race for who will be the running mate of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Atiku has begun in earnest.
Reports showed that prior to the primary on Saturday night, some of the governors of the party from the southern part of the country were working with the former Vice-President with the hope of becoming his running mate.
Those being touted as possible running mates are Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa; his Akwa Ibom State counterpart, Emmanuel; and Wike.
A top source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Atiku and the national leadership of the party would consider many factors before deciding on who would be his running mate. One of the factors was said to be the availability of funds for the campaign.
