With the revelation of Governor Wike, Peter Obi might beat Atiku Abubakar to pick the PDP presidential ticket because of one reason.
Agitation For Igbo Presidency
The agitation for Igbo presidency might favour Peter Obi to pick the PDP presidential ticket ahead of Atiku Abubakar.
The Southeast region where Peter Obi hails from has not produced the president of the country since the return of democracy in 1999, this might convince the stakeholders of the party to support Peter Obi to fly the flag of PDP.
The stakeholders who will decide who emerges the presidential candidate of the party may be convinced the support Peter Obi for the Igbos to produce the president of Nigeria for the first time since 1999.

Recall that the north where Atiku hails from produced the National Chairman of PDP in the last National Convention of PDP, this is why the stakeholders might support Peter Obi for the Southeast to produce the Nigerian President.
