The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Iyiochia Ayu, on Tuesday revealed when the main opposition party would announce its Vice Presidential candidate.
According to Ayu, PDP would reveal the running mate of the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar within the next 48 hours,
Ayu stated this while addressing members of the consultative committee set up to assist Atiku to choose a running mate.
Naija News had earlier reported that Ayu was in a closed-door meeting with some party leaders at the party’s national secretariat.
Ayu said, “The presidential candidate of our party would have been here, but this morning he suddenly dashed somewhere.
“He apologised and if he comes early, he will join us. But we will go ahead with the assignment he has given us.
“The candidate wrote to us, as the administrative arm of the party, on the choice of his running mate.
“Various organs of the party are well-represented in his committee — the National Working Committee, the Governors Forum, the National Assembly, and former governors who have put forward their candidates.
“This deliberation will be chaired by my able deputy, Ambassador Umaru Damaged.
“I wish you a successful deliberation and I hope you come up with a conclusion between tomorrow and Friday.
“Our presidential candidate, this time, has decided to carry everybody along unlike 2019 when he didn’t consult widely in his choice of running mate.”
