Is the duo of Atiku Abubakar and Ifeanyi Okowa, president and vice-president candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) running to former President Goodluck Jonathan over internal party problems?
This is the question Nigerians are asking following the visit of the two candidates to Jonathan in Abuja. Atiku announced the meeting on Friday on his Twitter page.
Atiku: “Last night, I led a delegation alongside my vice presidential candidate, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, on a courtesy visit to former president Goodluck Jonathan, at his residence in Abuja,” he wrote.
President Jonathan had been out of sight at meetings and events of the party since his defeat in 2015. In 2022, there were pressure on him to contest on the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC) with some herders association even picking the forms for him but he decline.
