Prof. Ufuophu-Biri also commended the PDP Presidential candidate, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku for the right choice of Senator Okowa as his running mate.

He averred that the combination of Alhaji Atiku, an experienced, tested and trusted politician and administrator of national and international repute and Senator Okowa, a grassroot and astute politician, who has grown from the very foundation of politics, public service and administration to his present position unblemished and laden with laurels and accolades, present a shining hope and the dawn of a happy era for Nigeria.
