According to a report by The Nation, the details of the agreement were that Atiku reached out to Governor Wike shortly after the presidential primaries asking Wike to be his running mate.

A source revealed that Wike turned down the offer and nominated former governor of Cross River state, Donald Duke.

The source said:

“There was much pressure on Wike to agree to the offer. A 17-man committee was also set up by the leadership of the party and 14 of the 17 members recommended Wike as Atiku’s running mate.

“The party leadership later raised a kangaroo committee (with Ayu as a member), which claimed that the party can only recommend three candidates to Atiku to pick. And it was obvious to Wike and his team that there was a predetermined candidate.

“You can see the lines of insincerity and lack of faith to talks. This explains why Wike shut his doors against Atiku.
