Iyorchia Ayu Reveals Who Picked Atiku’s Running Mate And It’s Not PDP

The choice of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State as Atiku Abubakar’s running mate was not his doing, according to Senator Iyorchia Ayu, the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

According to, the main opposition party is in crisis as a result of Atiku’s selection of Okowa over the advice of a committee assembled to help vet candidates for vice president.

In a statement to reporters, Simon Imobo-Tswam, the media advisor to the PDP National Chairman, claimed that Atiku, not the PDP, had chosen Okowa as his running mate.

He noted, “This question actually ought to be directed at the PDP presidential candidate, His Excellency, Alhaji. Atiku Abubakar. Okowa is not the running mate to Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, and neither is it the PDP National Chairman or the NWC that chose him as the running mate to Atiku.


“Of course, the party was involved in the processes leading to the emergence of a running mate, but whatever the party did was only advisory; the choice of who became the candidate’s running mate was ultimately, after all said and done, the decision of the candidate.”
