Why I Couldn't Support Ibori's Candidate For Governor – Okowa

2023: Okowa Can’t Deliver Southern Votes For PDP Victory – CNG

by Victor Ndubuisi

According to the Coalition of Northern Groups, Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa does not seem like a youthful Nigerian and would not help the Peoples Democratic Party win the upcoming presidential election.

Abubakar Atiku, the PDP’s presidential candidate and running partner, had picked Okowa as his vice-presidential candidate and running mate, characterizing him as a “qualified successor.”

In a statement given to media on Monday, the CNG spokesperson, Mr Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, criticized the PDP’s pick of Okowa, saying that for democracy to thrive, youngsters must be included.

Dr Ibrahim Bello-Dauda, an accountant and businessman from the North, would be the greatest running mate for the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, according to him.


The Kanuri philanthropist, Dauda, who is from Gora Town, Shani Local Government Area, Borno State, is believed to be one of the intellectual powerhouses of the APC.

“For democracy to flourish and have meaning, there must be demographic inclusion. The two major political parties systematically schemed younger aspirants out of their presidential tickets.

“In order to compliment the yearnings of the younger generation of Nigerians, the parties were expected to pick young people as running mates for their respective presidential candidates.

“The running mate selected by the Peoples Democratic Party is relatively not within the bracket of the young generation. Now eyes are now on the APC to compliment the (Bola) Tinubu-ticket with young people.

“As Vice Presidential candidate to Bola Tinubu, such young energetic men as Dr Ibrahim Dauda, remain the only viable alternative that can guarantee victory for the APC.

“And since Tinubu is more in favour of the North-East, Dauda, who just clocked 50, so far, stands out as the only representative of the young generation among all the other hopefuls from that zone.


“It added that such young men with great potential, impeccable pedigree, proven integrity, honesty and experience are what the APC needs on the Asiwaju ticket.

“Popular young aspiring personalities like Dauda shall be the ones to be considered in order to bridge the widening generation gap,” Suleiman said.
