Atiku Abubakar, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate for the 2023 general elections, said on Sunday that he is certain of winning because of his choice of running mate, Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.
In a newsletter titled ‘Okowa Is An Asset To You And I,’ Atiku, who rejected the PDP panel’s recommendation of Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike as his running mate, claimed that Okowa possessed all of the attributes he sought in a vice-president, as both of them shared the same personality.
HE SAID, “THE FIRST MOST IMPORTANT DECISION THAT ANY CANDIDATE FOR AN EXECUTIVE POSITION IN A DEMOCRACY MUST MAKE IS THE CHOICE OF A RUNNING MATE”.
THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT, IN PARTICULAR, REQUIRES THAT THE HOLDER OF THAT OFFICE MUST HAVE CLARITY OF THE MIND ON DECISION-MAKING. THAT IS WHY IN COUNTRIES THAT HAVE ACQUIRED MORE EXPERIENCES IN DEMOCRATIC ACCULTURATION, THE CHOICE THAT A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE MAKES ABOUT THEIR RUNNING MATES, AND HOW THEY MAKE THE DECISION, PROVIDES A WINDOW OF ASSESSING THEIR PREPAREDNESS FOR THE JOB THAT POTENTIALLY WAITS AHEAD OF THEM”.
“It became imperative for me to be introspective about my option in order to satisfy this expectation, and more significantly, to ensure that I make a choice of a running partner that you will be proud of.”
His Excellency Dr. Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa, the Governor of Delta State, and I share many personality traits.
“He is a gentleman, yet he is tenacious.” His Senate knowledge will be useful in some of the legislative reforms that are desperately needed to reorganize our governmental operations.”
“Ifeanyi and I are incurable optimists about Nigeria’s future and the promises it holds as a united, peaceful, and successful nation.” Having him on the ticket adds significant value to our campaign.
“In the months leading up to the general election, we will work extremely hard with other outstanding leaders of our party, the Peoples Democratic Party, and with your appreciated support to achieve our party’s convincing win.”
