Atiku Abubakar’s running mate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, has said that his Rivers State counterpart, Nyesom Wike, will not be disappointed that he was picked as Atiku Abubakar’s running mate ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
Okowa, who spoke to journalists after his screening at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDD) headquarters in Abuja, said he believes Wike has love for the party and the country, and also understands that when several brothers are in the race for a particular position, it has to be one person at a point in time.
He said: “Governor Wike is a very strong party man he has great love for our party and I believe he is also a good democrat, he understands that when several brothers are in the race for a particular position it has to be one person at a point in time.
“But I want to assure you that Governor Wike is a very good man and his interest for this country and the party is to be able to rise up to the challenge at the moment. He is strong and I do not feel that he is going to be disappointed.”
