Reactions As PDP Panel Recommends Wike As Atiku’s Running Mate

Reactions have trailed the recommendation of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State as the running mate to Atiku Abubakar.

Naija News earlier reported that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) committee set up to recommend a Vice-presidential candidate for Atiku has reportedly picked Wike as his running mate.

While picking Wike as its first option, the PDP panel said the governor as the vice-presidential candidate will do better for the ticket than his main challengers.

Naija News reports that others considered for the PDP presidential ticket are Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State and Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State respectively.

According to two sources familiar with the decision, the chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum and Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal also endorsed the decision to prioritise Wike on the list of key vice-presidential options.

It was learned that PDP Governors, board of trustee members and the national working committee officials made contributions to the list of running mates for Atiku.

However, Nigerians have taken to social media to react to the emergence of Wike as the running mate to Atiku in the 2023 presidential election.
