The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has been mocked on social media following the emergence of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as the running mate of the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Okowa was unveiled today.
Speaking at the unveiling ceremony, Atiku revealed that he chose Okowa because he has the qualities to be President and has an appreciation of the deep rot in which the country has been put into.
The PDP Presidential candidate added that he chose Okowa because he is dedicated, and reliable and would support him wholeheartedly to steer the country to greater heights.
