Peter Obi Is Atiku Running Mate

Former governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi, has been picked as the running mate to Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), according to a top member of the opposition party who craved anonymity.

The deal to have the two-term governor of Anambra on a joint ticket with Abubakar for 2019 was reportedly sealed at a meeting in Abuja on Friday afternoon.

Gbenga Daniel, director-general of Abubakar’s campaign, who attended the meeting was also considered a running mate but the odds did not favour him.

Senator Ben Murray-Bruce tweeted, “Congrats my friend and brother, Mr. Peter Obi on your selection as vice presidential candidate to H.E @atiku. Without doubt, this is a solid team that will lift Nigeria to her rightly place amongst the assembly of nations.
