BREAKING!!!! Confusion As Atiku Drops Wike, Picks Ifeanyi Okowa Running Mate

 

In a surprise move, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar has picked Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate for the 2023 presidential election.

A source who spoke exclusively with our correspondent said that Atiku’s decision was made out of “undue pressure and conspiracy against the party’s frontline choice, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike.”

The source added that the Vice Presidential Candidate screening exercise scheduled to hold at 10am on Thursday would be “a mere formality” as Atiku had already made his choice.
