The former Imo State governor, Emeka Ihedioha, has reacted to media reports making the rounds that he has been picked as the 2023 running mate to People’s Democratic Party, PDP’s presidential candidate, former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, in the 2023 general election.
According to Vanguard, sources in the PDP, had disclosed that Ihedioha is among the names presented to Atiku for possible consideration.
A media aide to the Ihedioha said his principal is “indifferent” about the matter.
He said: “Ihedioha is not VP. Atiku is yet to choose. However, his name is among those being tipped for it which he has been indifferent about.”
While reacting to the reports, the former governor stated that he is totally oblivious to that decision.
“Honestly, I am not aware of any action in that direction,” Vanguard reports.
Meanwhile, Nigerians on social media have jumped on the news with many different opinion. Some said if Atiku can confirm the speculation, PDP would be formidable with the choice of an Igbo running mate.
While others have condemned the move, saying “The only candidate an Igbo man would vote is Peter Obi.”
