2019: Atiku Narrows Down Choices For VP As Monday Deadline Draws Near

The Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is considering several options as his running mate, as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) deadline for the submission of names of parties’ candidate expires on Monday.

ThisDay reports that at least three technocrats and two politicians have been penciled down for the position.

The technocrats include: former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Prof. Charles Soludo; former Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dr. Akinwunmi Adesina; and former Managing Director of Asset Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON), Mr. Chike Obi.

The politicians are: former governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, and the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu.
The PDP hierarchy are still undecided between the South-West and South-East, on the zone the position should be allotted.

Both zones were believed to have helped Atiku neutralise the Northern zones’ delegates’ votes that went to Sokoto State Governor, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal, during the presidential primary on Saturday.

Atiku is, however, said to be insisting on a younger running mate, who must also have deep knowledge of the economy.
