ABUJA, Nigeria (MANDY NEWS) — Atiku Abubakar has secretly named Governor of Rivers State Ezenwo Nyesom Wike as his running mate for the Nigeria presidential election 2023, by dumping a former Anambra State governor, Peter Obi.

The former Vice President and presidential aspirant for Nigeria 2023 general election on the platform of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) selected the heavyweight champion of South-South to compete on a major party’s presidential ticket and understanding the vital role Wike will play in his bid to defeat All Progressive Congress (APC).

Why Atiku Dumps Peter Obi For Wike?

According to the report sighted by Mandy News on Business Day, Atiku’s decision to dump Obi was because he made little financial contributions to the 2019 campaign purse as well as inability to win his state Anambra and the South East for the party in the presidential election.

The source close to the Atiku campaign team to Business Day News:

  • “Prior to the 2019 election, Governor Peter Obi didn’t have a strong political structure outside the South East.
  • People just loved him because of his vast knowledge of the economy, winning an election goes beyond all that.
  • “For instance, since he left office and joined PDP he has not been able to have his nominees win the governorship election in the state.
  • Although he is brilliant and can speak good grammar, interprets the economy very well, winning an election is much more than that. How much did he bring to the table?
  • “To successfully run an election in this country you need money, connection, strong and vast political structure, etc, and these you find in abundance in Nyesom Wike.
  • He is a good material any day and that’s not the kind of man you leave behind, especially if you want to win election in Nigeria.”

Do you think Atiku and Wike can defeat Tinubu or Osibanjo?
