Following the announcement that Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa is the running mate of presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, some Nigerians on social media believe Okowa is not the right choice.
According to them, Okowa’s cold war with his predecessor James Ibori might create problems for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as Ibori remains a strong figure in the party’s politics in the south-south region.
In the power tussle, Okowa’s preferred person became governorship candidate in Delta as against that of Ibori. This has increased tension between Okowa and Ibori.
