Delta State PDP President Atiku Abubakar has appointed Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa to join him.

He chose this morning, June 16, to be handed over by the party’s National Working Committee to three nominees and presented by Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Ifeanyi Okowa, and Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom state.

After careful consideration, Atiku chose Okowa as his choice for runner-up. Speaking on occasion, Atiku said that one of the things he discussed was that his partner must have ‘presidential character.’
