Atiku finally chose peter obi as his running mate(V.P) for 2019 election



The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has held talks with Peter Obi in Abuja. Mr Obi arrived at Mr Abubakar’s residence in Asokoro neighbourhood around 3:00 p.m. on Friday, and both discussed in camera. The former Anambra governor is widely speculated as a top candidate for Mr Abubakar to pick as running mate. Multiple sources close to Mr Abubakar told MEDIA Mr Obi has been chosen as the vice presidential candidate after the meeting. “He is the one,” a top official in Mr Abubakar’s office told MEDIA. The source said a confirmation statement would be released latest by Saturday morning. 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. The reported choice of Mr Obi is expected to galvanise the backing of the South-east towards Mr Abubakar’s candidacy. Mr Obi was the governor of Anambra State between 2006 and 2014 under the All Progressives Grand Alliance, a party stridently associated with Odimegwu Ojukwu, the late head of the defunct Biafran state.
