Punch reports that Atiku’s search for a vice-president, may have been limited to the South East.

However, some states in the five states that made up the zone, might have reportedly been disqualified.

For instance, Anambra, where Senator Ben Obi who was a former running mate to Atiku hails from, was said to have been disqualified.

The reason is that the state had produced two former Speakers, two former presidents of the Senate, one vice president and a President.

For Imo State, it has produced a former deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives and had also produced a Senate President.
