Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has emerged as the running mate to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.
Mr. Okowa’s nomination was announced and confirmed on Thursday.
This follows the conclusion on Wednesday night of a series of meetings between the candidate and the party’s hierarchy on the issue.
It is believed the former senator beat Governor Wike and Governor Udom to emerge as Mr. Atiku’s running mate.
Mr. Okowa supported Atiku in the primary where Mr. Wike was his closest challenger.
