2019 election: Atiku picks Peter Obi as running mate (photos)

It appears that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has appointed former Anambra state Governor, Peter Obi as his running mate.

He was appointed today after a closed door meeting in Atiku’s Abuja residence since 3pm.


You will recall that it has been speculated that the former Anambra State Governor is being considered a top candidate to become Atiku’s running mate.

The former vice president on Sunday became the presidential candidate of PDP, Nigeria’s main opposition.

Several options have been suggested in the public domain, with the candidate being widely expected to choose from either the Igbo-dominated Southeast or a Yoruba choice in the Southwest part of the country.
