Atiku was closely followed by Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal, President of the Senate, Bukola and Gombe State Governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo who polled 693, 317, 158 and 111 respectively.

In 1998 he was elected Governor of Adamawa State.

26,584 people made Atiku their candidate. They will be deciding who shall represent the party ahead of the presidential election in February 2019.

"I am moved by the outcome of the convention and I promise you, I will not fail you".


The idea, the source said, was to ensure that the former aspirants were able to return to office should they fail to clinch the presidential ticket just as it happened on Sunday.

So once again sir, on behalf of the other aspirants, we are with you and are confident tha with us as a team, May 29, 2019 the flags of red, white and green will be in the [Presidential] Villa as our party comes to take over. We all knew right from the beginning that only one person will emerge so this is not a surprise to us.

PoliticsNGR earlier reported that the Governors under the party had earlier met with President Muhammadu Buhari.

A political analyst, Chief Jackson Lekan OJo, also told our correspondent in Port Harcourt that party leaders should come together and discuss ways to keep the party united and how its candidate would win the centre.


I want to thank Governor Okowa for planning and organizing this transparent, free and fair Presidential Primary and Convention.

The statement said: "The end of the primary process of the individual parties today marks the beginning of the main work of the CUPP which is to select a consensus candidate from the over 15 Presidential candidates that have emerged from parties that are members of the cupp grand alliance".

The poll asked, "Who is the best candidate for @OfficialPDPNig [PDP]?"

Onochie on her Facebook handle said 'You ran away from facing President Buhari in a Primary, now you'll meet him at the Presidential elections.
