Atiku picks Peter Obi as Running mate

Peter Obi, a former governor of Anambra state, 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.
