We’ll triumph with Okowa as Atiku’s running mate–Lagos PDP


The Lagos State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has applauded the choice of Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta as running mate of the party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Gov. Okowa was on Thursday unveiled by the PDP national leadership as the running mate to the former Vice- President Abubakar for 2023 general elections.

Speaking to NAN on Okowa’s emergence, Mr Philips Aivoji, Chairman, Lagos PDP, said that the party was sure to triumph with Atiku Abubakar/Ifeanyi Okowa ticket.

“We have got a good vice presidential candidate and he is a man of integrity and honour. He is a trusted and tested party leader as a former senator and two-term governor.

“We can see his resume and none can match it. We are on top of the game and we are sure of winning with Atiku/Okowa ticket. It is a good development,” Aivoji said.

He said that Okowa’s choice would boost PDP’s electoral strength in South South and South East in 2023 general elections.

“By God’s grace, we are going to triumph not by our power or might.

“Some people trust in chariot, some trust in horse, but we trust in the Name of the Lord, we will triumph,” Aivoji told NAN.
