Published

on

The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), for the forthcoming 2019 election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Friday picked the former governor of Anambra state, Mr Peter Obi as his running mate.
Since PDP elected Atiku as its Presidential candidate, reactions on whom he is going to pick as his running mate in order to oust the current government have flooded the social media.

Nigerians have recommended several Political giants like Peter Obi; Ike Ekweremad the deputy senate president; Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, former minister of finance; Osita Chidoka, former minister of aviation and others believed to have equal political strength with the incumbent government.
Although neither Mr Abubakar nor the PDP has formally announced Mr Obi as running mate, a PDP senator, Ben Murray-Bruce, congratulated Mr Obi on Friday evening.

“Congrats my friend and brother, Mr. Peter Obi on your selection as vice presidential candidate to H.E @atiku. Without doubt, this is a solid team that will lift Nigeria to her rightly place amongst the assembly of nations,” Mr Murray-Bruce wrote on his verified Twitter handle.
