The Presidential Candidate of the Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN), Mr. Fela Durotoye, has named Mrs. Khadijah Abdullahi-Iya, as his running mate for the 2019 poll.

The Director General of the ANN 2019 Presidential Campaign, Mr. Lanre Oyegbola, in a statement in Abuja on Thursday, said the development marks another milestone in the journey to the 2019 elections as the choice of Mrs. Khadijah presents the party greater foothold in Northern Nigeria.
