As Atiku begins search for his running mate, many Nigerians are saying the PDP presidential candidate should pick Okonjo Iweala or Ben Bruce has his running mate.
A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Enugu State, Chief Chinedu Eya, has congratulated former Vice President, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku, following his emergence as the presidential candidate of the PDP.
However, Eya called on Atiku to choose the country’s former finance Minister, Dr Ngozi Okonjo Iweala or Senator Ben Murray-Bruce, representing Brass Senatorial zone of Bayesa State as his running mate, to give technical coloration to his aspiration.
Chief Eya, a former Enugu North senatorial aspirant on the platform of PDP, who spoke after a keenly contested primary election of the PDP, at the national convention of the party held at the Adokiye Amasiemeka stadium, Igwuruta-Ali, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, congratulated the party’s delegates for their bold decision during the exercise. Chief Eya noted that his choice of the two candidates mentioned above were to allow front-line technocrats in the country the opportunity to chart a new course for the Nation’s bastardised economy under the All Progressives Congress (APC) in one term.
