“Atiku is a defender of restructuring and has promised to defend the devolution of power to the federated states.
“Atiku, having been vice president of Nigeria, is the most experienced of all the presidential candidates, and furthermore, his joint candidacy with Okowa meets the criteria for a Muslim-Christian candidacy.
“The choice of Atiku of Okowa as his running mate is an indication that the PDP presidential candidate cares about the Igbo people.”
