The presidential candidate of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has announced his running mate for the 2019 general election.
It was gathered that a former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has been picked as the running mate of the former VP in the February 14, 2019 election.
Obi emerged the preferred choice of both the party and the candidate after series of consultations by stakeholders in the party and outside it.
It was also learnt that the name of Obi and that of Atiku will be sent to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) next week.
Bear in mind that INEC deadline for the submission of names of party’s candidate expires on Monday, 15 October.
