A socio-political commentator, Reno Omokri, has spoken concerning the emergence of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State as the running mate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Omokri said Atiku would be running on a Muslim-Christian ticket in 2023.
Reporters reported that Atiku had unveiled Okowa as his running mate in Abuja on Thursday.
There were insinuations that Atiku picked Okowa ahead of the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike as his running mate.
Reacting to the development, Omokri described Okowa as a gentleman who has governed his state extremely well and someone who knows how to speak in public.
He asserted that the North and South would love Okowa because he is a believer in one Nigeria.
In a tweet, the former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan wrote: “Our candidate would be running on a Muslim-Christian ticket. A very balanced ticket, with a gentleman who has governed his state extremely well, and who knows how to speak words seasoned with salt. Nobody can beat the ticket HE Atiku unveil to Nigeria!
