|The Outcome Of Atiku's Visit To Sen. Ekweremadu And SE Gov. by celinajumbo11(f): 1:00pm On Nov 28, 2018|
His Excellency, Atiku Abubakar and the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, on Monday visited the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu for some consultations and to seek his understanding over the choice of Mr. Peter Obi as his running mate.
On the entourage of H.E Atiku Abubakar were the Director General of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, who is also the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki; National Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus; and the National Organizing Secretary of the party, Col. Austin Akobundu (retd.).
It was learnt that the visit was for consultation with Ekweremadu as a run up to the 2019 polls.
With news making round the clock regarding the start of the campaign, it was imperative to carry out such visit to Ekweremadu. It was gathered that the entourage asked for his support which he obliged; and also explained to him that Obi was picked in the interest of the zone in particular and the nation in general.
It was said, “He was told that Obi does not have any corruption case against him and that he does not belong to any faction of the party.
“He was also told that Obi’s emergence has further raised the acceptability level of the PDP across the country.”
Meanwhile, the party has scheduled its National Executive Committee meeting for Thursday in Abuja.
Our correspondent gathered that the meeting would approve the full composition of the council and also vet its budget for the campaigns.
Secondus confirmed the inauguration of the campaign council to our correspondent on the telephone.
“Yes, we are meeting on Thursday and the campaign will be inaugurated same day,” he said.
