Finally, after much deliberations and consultation.
The opposition party has picked the former Anambra State governor, Mr Peter Obi as a running mate to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar..
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, on Friday picked a former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, as his running mate.
Our reporter gathered that Mr Atiku made the choice after narrowing his search for running mate to a politician from the South East.
Though there is no official comfirmation yet, one of the senior aides of the PDP candidate confirmed Atiku’s pick for running-mate to our reporter but pleaded not to be quoted because he was not authorised to speak on the issue. The aide however said Atiku would in due course formally present Obi to Nigerians.
The people nominated were:
Charles Soludo and
Ngozi Okonjo Iweala..
Congratulations to Mr Peter Obi.
