JUST IN: As Atiku Meets PDP Governors To Choose Running Mate, Pundits Say Obaseki's History of Defeating Tinubu Ranks High




Following the emergence of Tinubu as flagbearer of the APC, political watchers have tipped Governor Obaseki as the most capable running mate of Atiku who is the flagbearer of the PDP.

The belief is that His Excellency, Mr Godwin Obaseki, the Governor of Edo State has a recent history of dislodging the political machinery of Tinubu and the APC in Edo State especially as seen in the Edo 2020 elections.

With that in mind, Atiku is presently meeting with Governors in the PDP to discuss the choice of his running mate.

Top of the list, according to our sources is the Governor of Edo State. We are waiting for a verbal confirmation of this postulation as the only event which was being awaited, which is the APC Presidential primaries, is now concluded.

Sources close to the governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, said that the critical stakeholders meeting would likely come up with a running mate for Abubakar.

"I guess a running mate would top the agenda. Especially now that Bola Tinubu is the candidate of the APC, there's the need to change tactics," the source said.

He further hinted that the constitution of the Atiku Presidential Campaign Council was also in the offing.

Some of the governors at the meeting are Bayelsa Governor, Douye Diri; Bauchi Governor, Bala Mohammed; Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike, and Benue Governor, Samuel Ortom. 

Others are Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal and his Oyo State counterpart, Seyi Makinde.
