He, therefore, solicited the support of all the Igbo worldwide for the actualization of the Atiku/Okowa presidency come 2023 for a united Nigeria.
Senator Okowa noted that Atiku, being an in-law to the Igbo, has demonstrated his desire and likeness for the Igbo as he always picks an Igbo person as his running mate whenever he gets a presidential ticket.
He also said: “2023 is a time of decision-making that will either make or mar us as a nation if we vote in the wrong direction, but voting for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar will certainly be the best decision for a secure country.”
