Since PDP elected Atiku as its Presidential candidate, reactions on whom he is going to pick as his running mate in order to oust the current government have flooded the social media.

Nigerians have recommended several Political giants like Peter Obi; Ike Ekweremad the deputy senate president; Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, former minister of finance; Osita Chidoka, former minister of aviation and others believed to have equal political strength with
the incumbent government.

However, Nigeria is believed to have a better chance of
overcoming its challenges if Atiku and Peter Obi are able to make the challenging trip down to the Aso Villa in the coming elections.

A possibility of nationwide prosperity has been identified as a reason why PDP's presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar picked Peter Obi as his running mate » in next year's election.

In a statement released by Otunba Gbenga Daniel who is the Director General of the Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Organisation , the campaign said Obi is a man with leadership skills having handled managerial roles at different corporations.

The combination of Atiku and his running mate is a sure path to a better Nigeria, Daniel said in his statement.

"This ticket will be able to steer our nation back on the path of progress, economic prosperity and unity.

“He is also a graduate of several international and national institutions such as the Lagos Business School, Harvard Business School, London School of Economics, Columbia Business School, Institute of Management,
Switzerland, Kellogg Graduate School, Oxford
University and Cambridge University.

“In public service, he has led various divisions some of which includes: Member, Presidential Economic Management Team; Vice-Chairman, Nigeria Governors’ Forum; Chairman, South- East Governors’ Forum, and the Governor of Anambra State.

“Peter Obi is an astute professional who has laid his footprints across the corporate world.

He was the Chairman, Board of Security and Exchange Commission (SEC); former Chairman, Fidelity Bank PLC; former Chairman, Guardian Express Mortgage Bank; former Chairman, Future Views Securities; former Chairman, Paymaster Nigeria; former Chairman, Next
International Nigeria; former Director, Guardian Express Bank PLC; former Director, Chams
Nigeria PLC; former Director, Emerging Capital:
former Director, Card Centre PLC.

“He is a member of the British Institute of Directors (IOD), Nigerian Chartered Institute of Bankers and Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG)."

Many Nigerians on Twitter agree with Atiku's interest in Obi  in many tweets confirming satisfaction over the partnership.

Getting Igbo votes won't be a problem to worry about according to those who shared their thoughts.

Ultimatetimestv had reported that Atiku was considering at least five names, ahead of the Monday deadline imposed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The former vice-president has now settled for Obi.
