“We are lucky to have Governor Okowa as our vice presidential candidate and Nigerians can now see why Atiku Abubakar picked him as his running mate. It was not a fluke.
“He not only sold our recovery plan, he gave practical solutions to issues. You can see how he comported himself to the admiration of Nigerians when some supporters of other parties became virulent .
“We also saw how he reminded the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, former Governor Peter Obi that up until May, he was a member and presidential aspirant of the PDP.
“Ours is a campaign to recover Nigeria and at every opportunity, we do not forget to sell this to Nigerians. This was what Okowa did yesterday.
“We look forward to other engaging sessions like this and we at PDP are ready. We don’t shy away from debates unlike others.”
