The Peoples Democratic Party has called on its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to submit the list of his preferred candidates as running mate for the 2019 election.

The National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus and members of the party’s National Working Committee had a closed-door meeting with Atiku on Tuesday where the issue was discussed.

The party asked the former vice president to do so quickly as it also advised him to always work with the party now that he had emerged as the presidential candidate.

Atiku emerged among 12 other contestants in Port Harcourt, Rivers State on Saturday and had since begun serious search for a running mate.
