Barring any unforeseen change in the situation, Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa has emerged as the running mate of the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar for the 2023 election.
According to Arise TV, the announcement of Okowa as the PDP’s running mate would be made in the next few hours.
It stated that the PDP and Atiku have settled for Okowa instead of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
Reacting to the development, Omokri stated that Atiku would be running on a Muslim-Christian ticket following the emergence of Okowa as his running mate.
The controversial writer described Governor Okowa as a gentleman who has governed his state extremely well and someone who knows how to speak in public.
He asserted that both the North and South will love Okowa because he is a believer in one Nigeria and he is temperate. Omokri added that Okowa is mindful of the impact of his words and actions on the feelings of other Nigerians.
Omokri made this known in a series of tweets via his Twitter handle on Thursday morning.
He wrote: “Our candidate would be running on a Muslim-Christian ticket. A very balanced ticket, with a gentleman who has governed his state extremely well, and who knows how to speak words seasoned with salt. Nobody can beat the ticket, HE Atiku is about to unveil to Nigeria!
