The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it will unveil the running mate for its presidential candidate, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, on Thursday, June 16, 2022.
The party’s National Chairman, Iyiochia Ayu, said this on Tuesday in Abuja, before to the start of a meeting of a committee formed to choose the party’s vice-presidential candidate.
Members of the committee include members of the National Working Committee, the Board of Trustees, and past governors.
The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, and his Delta State counterpart, Ifeanyi Okowa, are among those campaigning for the VP position, according to Punch.
During the committee meeting on Tuesday, Ayu, however, stated that the running mate will be revealed within the next 48 hours.
He said, “The presidential candidate of our party would have been here, but this morning he suddenly dashed somewhere. He apologised and if he comes early, he will join us. But we will go ahead with the assignment he has given us.
“The candidate wrote to us, as the administrative arm of the party, on the choice of his running mate.
“Various organs of the party are well represented in his committee — NWC, Governors Forum, National Assembly, former governors which have put forward their candidate
“This deliberation will be chaired by my able Deputy, Ambassador Umaru Damagum
“I wish you a successful deliberation and I hope you come up with a conclusion between tomorrow and Friday.
“Our presidential candidate, this time, has decided to carry everybody along unlike 2019 when he didn’t consult widely in his choice of running mate.
Governors Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State, Samuel Ortom of Benue State, former Senate President David Mark, Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State, Liyel Imoke of Cross River State, and Senator Philip Aduda attended the meeting.
