PDP Looking for Best Choice to Replace Osibanjo

Atiku Abubakar

The possibility of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) settling for a replacement for Vice President Yemi Osinbajo from the Southeast and intrigues by politicians jostling to be chosen are some of the reasons the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) standard bearer, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, might delay the announcement of his running mate till the last minute.

Shortly after Atiku clinched the first position in PDP presidential primary election last Sunday in Port Harcourt, a lot of players from both the Southeast and Southwest began making serious moves and sending representations to the party’s substantive presidential candidate seeking to be considered for the vice presidential ticket.

Although sources within the Abubakar Atiku Presidential Campaign Organisation confided in The Guardian that the PDP presidential candidate has not penciled down a prospective running mate, it was gathered that some names have started popping up now and then as possible candidates.

The Guardian learned that considerations as to whether the presidential running mate would come from Southeast or Southwest brought a new twist to the search as well as the strategic need to accommodate the inputs of some critical stakeholders that oiled the machinery for Atiku’s eventual emergence as the PDP numero uno.
