WIKE BEATS OKOWA TO EMERGE ATIKU’S RUNNING MATE

WIKE BEATS OKOWA TO EMERGE ATIKU’S RUNNING MATE

There are strong indications that the committee set up by the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to pick Atiku Abubakar’s running mate has  picked Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike.

Wike  floored Ifeanyi Okowa, Delta state Governor to emerge as Atiku’s running mate.

Wike won by a whopping 16-3 vote and Okowa only got 3 votes.

Observers believe that Ifeanyi Okowa would have been  naturally  fit for the job, but the obstacle he has is that his former godfather, James Ibori, mounted a serious opposition and resistance on Atiku picking Okowa because his former political son Okowa hijacked the PDP delta state structure from him.
