Ihedioha says Okowa not only balances the ticket but will also serve as a partner to the highly experienced, cerebral Atiku Abubakar

Former Governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha, has hailed the choice of Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa, as the vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Recall that the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, named Okowa as his running mate over Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, who was thought to be favourite for the role.

In a statement, Ihedioha said Okowa’s choice is apt because he would add immense value to the ticket.

Ihedioha said: “On behalf of the leaders and members of the Peoples Democratic Party in Imo State, I congratulate my friend and brother, His Excellency, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa, on his meritorious nomination as the Vice Presidential candidate of our great Party for the 2023 general elections.

“This is sequel to my conviction that Governor Okowa is a very distinguished, loyal, disciplined and committed party man who will add great value to and complement the presidential ticket given his well-acknowledged, rich legislative and executive pedigree spanning several years in our country.

“He not only balances the ticket but will serve as a partner to the highly experienced, cerebral, prepared and great unifier His Excellency Alh. Atiku Abubarkar GCON, the PDP presidential candidate.

“I urge all party faithful to support the Atiku/Okowa ticket as we march towards actualizing the democratic expectations of Nigerians for a PDP return to government in 2023, to Rescue and Rebuild Nigeria,” Ihedioha said.
