After winning PDP presidential primaries, Atiku begins search for running mate


After winning PDP presidential primaries, Atiku begins search for running mate






Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar on
Sunday at the main bowl of Adokie Amiesimaka Stadium, Port Harcourt,
Rivers State, won the presidential primary of the Peoples Democratic
Party.





Hardly did Atiku emerge as the winner than the talk of his running mate started.





Investigations by our correspondents showed that the search might have been limited to the South-East region of the country.





However, in the election, Atiku polled
1,532 votes out of total of 3,221 votes, representing almost 50 per cent
of the entire delegates’ votes.





His closest rival, Governor Aminu
Tambuwal of Sokoto State scored 693 votes, while the President of the
Senate, Olusola Saraki, came third with 317 votes.





A former Governor of Kano State, Alhaji
Rabiu Kwankwaso, scored 158 votes; a former Governor of Jigawa, Sule
Lamido, polled 96 votes, while a former Minister of Special Duties and
Inter Governmental Relations, Alhaji Kabiru Turaki (SAN) scored 65
votes.





A former National Caretaker Chairman of
the PDP, Alhaji Ahmed Makarfi, polled 74 votes; a former Governor of
Sokoto State, Attahiru Bafarawa, scored 48 votes; a former President of
the Senate, Senator David Mark, polled 35 votes; a former Plateau State
governor, Jonah Jang, scored 19  votes, while Dr Datti Ahmed scored five
votes.
