Oasis Magazine had reported early Tuesday that Atiku’s backers preferred and picked Governor Okowa, adding that the feedback from the committee was awaited.
Idoma Voice reoorts that Wike won by a whopping 16 votes while Okowa got only 3 votes.
Observers believe that Ifeanyi Okowa would have been the natural fit for the job, but the obstacle he has is that of his former godfather, James Ibori, who mounted a serious opposition and resistance to Atiku picking Okowa because his former political son, Okowa hijacked the PDP Delta State structure from him.
