The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has given reasons for picking Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as his running mate for the 2023 presidential election.

He gave the reasons in his remarks at the unveiling of Okowa as his running mate at the PDP National Headquarters, Wadata Plaza, Wuse Abuja, on Thursday.

Okowa and his Rivers State counterpart, Nyesom Wike, were the two governors speculated to be considered for the slot.

READ ATIKU’S FULL REMARKS

Let me begin by, once more, commending our great Party for organizing and concluding, arguably, the best and rancour-free Convention, which produced me as our flag-bearer for the next year’s Presidential Election.

Once more, I commend my fellow aspirants in that contest. I thank them for their sportsmanship. They put up spirited fights because they cared and care for our country. I have personally gone around to thank them and to seek their cooperation for the struggle ahead.

Party unity is critical not only for us to prosecute a winning campaign but also to provide good governance that our country seriously deserves and our people earnestly yearn for. The task of winning the coming elections will be a tough one and we must not take anything for granted.
