Former Vice President and People Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Flagbearer, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is reported to be weighing all his options for a running mate.

This is coming as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) deadline for the submission of names of parties’ candidate expires on Monday.

ThisDay reports that at least three technocrats and two politicians have been penciled down for the position.

The technocrats include: former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Prof. Charles Soludo; former Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dr. Akinwunmi Adesina; and former Managing Director of Asset Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON), Mr. Chike Obi.

The politicians are: former governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, and the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu.

The South-West and South-East still remains the region that will produce the Vice President slot, this is according to the arranging of the PDP.

Both zones were believed to have helped Atiku neutralise the Northern zones’ delegates’ votes that went to Sokoto State Governor, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal, during the presidential primary on Saturday.
