Wike Absent As Okowa Is Unveiled As Atiku’s Running Mate by ManirBK: 7:00pm On Jun 16, 2022
A leading contender for the vice presidential slot of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, was on Thursday conspicuously absent at a brief ceremony to unveil his counterpart from Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa, as the vice presidential candidate of the party in the 2023 elections.

Recall that Wike was the runner-up at the PDP presidential primary election held on May 28 with 237 votes, losing to Atiku Abubakar, who polled 371.

Since after the primary election, Wike was touted as the natural presidential running mate to Atiku given the governor’s enormous influence within the party.

However, Okowa was unveiled by former vice president and PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, before party stalwarts and top officials at the PDP national headquarters in Abuja.

He said one of the considerations for Okowa’s choice was his suitability to succeed him after his tenure in office if eventually elected as president.

“I am delighted to announce Governor Ifeanyi A. Okowa as my Vice Presidential candidate. I look forward to travelling our great country together, engaging with all Nigerians and building a shared future of peace, unity, and prosperity for all,” Atiku said.

Besides the party’s national chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, members of the National Working Committee (NWC), Board of Trustees (BoT), and Caucus members, Okowa’s colleagues were also present at the unveiling ceremony.

They included governors of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Uguanyi: Bauchi, Bala Mohammed; Awka Ibom, Udom Emmanuel; Edo, Godwin Obaseki, and Benue; Samuel Ortom.

Wike will be a dangerous VP to any candidate.

The way God is just clearing the path for Peter Obi…
-Shows Peter Obi to leave PDP
-Didn’t allow Wike to get PDP ticket
-Didn’t allow Osibanjo or Amaechi to get APC ticket
-Makes Atiku not to get Wike as VP
-APC consistency in bad governance making plans for a Muslim-Muslim ticket.

We deltans will be obedient. Okowa is a propagandist governor, who only works on media. And his media execution of youth empowerment programe, using pointer newspaper, DBS and NTA, who open for only one hr per day to sing his praises and teach how to plant corn and harvest cucumber, after which they close and go home. What of his partly collapsed yeye billion dollar Asaba drainage he has been constructing since 1st tenure? 150 billion borrowed to fund sherrif primary ? Useless governor going there to serve himself, not Nigerians, thinking deltans will vote him. U need pass inec office and see very mammoth crowd of people collection pvc, and hear comments such as " we must come out in block and vote out all these old useless greedy men," "we must get things right without considering my brothers emotion" we must vote in who will lay solid foundation, not for me, but for our children" since Both atiku and tinubu crossed primaries. U need see their anger them use ask inec to quickly give them their PVc

You expected him to be there in the first
place.
You don't know how painful it is to lose two big matches in a row. Allow him to heal in peace.

If only Wike will be sincere enough to tell you how much he invested on this failed project, you will weep for the people of River State.

Mark it, from now till the end of his tenure, there will never be any flyover again in River State, coz the main aim of those elephant project have been defeated

Any man who is desperate to be a leader or not prepared to be a leader barely leads well.

Wike wants to win all the time.

Real party men, Wike and Okowa. Both of them always believed in PDP and never left, irrespective of the challenges.
