Atiku Abubakar and Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, the presidential and vice presidential candidates for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), met with former President Goodluck Jonathan in Abuja.

Okowa, the governor of Delta State, announced the meeting, in a tweet via his verified Twitter handle on Friday, 18th November. The PDP vice-presidential candidate also shared photos of the meeting.

According to him, the conversation with Jonathan focused on how to reclaim power from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC in the 2023 elections.

He tweeted, “Last night, alongside our Presidential Candidate, Alhaji @Atiku Abubakar, we had a great meeting with our former President, H.E. @GEJonathan. There, we discussed our plans to #RecoverNigeria with His Excellency.”

In a similar vein, Atiku also announced the Abuja meeting, “Last night, I led a delegation alongside my vice-presidential candidate, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, on a courtesy visit to former President Goodluck Jonathan at his residence in Abuja. -AA,” he wrote on his Facebook page on Friday.

Jonathan had referred to Okowa as Nigeria’s incoming vice president during a visit by a PDP team led by Okowa and the governor of Bauchi state in October.

The former president stated that he was willing and ready to support and work for the success of the PDP in the 2023 elections, wishing the party members success in all their endeavours.
