He beat Aminu Tambuwal and Senate President Bukola Saraki, who scored 693 and 317 votes, respectively.

Dankwambo is a two-time governor of Gombe State, first winning by a landslide in the governorship election of April 26, 2011.

A member of the Atiku campaign organisation, who does not want his name in print, said the major decider was the 11th hour support of the candidature of Atiku by former President Olusegun Obasanjo and other past generals. "The task to get Nigeria working again starts now", Abubakar said in a tweet.

Saraki in a statement signed by his Special Adviser (Media and Publicity), Yusuph Olaniyonu also commended the delegates to the convention and members of the organizing committte led by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State for holding a convention in which a candidate was elected in a free, fair, transparent and rancour-free atmosphere.

The idea, the source said, was to ensure that the former aspirants were able to return to office should they fail to clinch the presidential ticket just as it happened on Sunday.

Also in the race for the PDP presidential ticket are former Sokoto State Governor, Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa; founder of Baze University, Abuja, Datti Baba-Ahmed; former Kaduna State Governor, Senator Ahmed Makarfi and former Plateau State Governor, Senator Jonah Jang. It is not a one man's job, it is a collective responsibility and I am prepared to listen to you, to take your advice, consult with you, work with you and together, we'll succeed and after we succeed, we shall all be partners in that success.

How does USMCA impact local dairy companies and fruit growers?
Whole-milk sales were down more than 50 percent from the 1970s. "We have a lot of cows, and we have a lot of cows producing milk". US consumers probably won't notice a difference in dairy product prices at the grocery store as a result of the agreement.

We always knew from Day 1 that only one candidate would emerge.

The presidential flagbearer of the party will emerge from the convention.

In the same way, the Nigerian Tribune learnt, the party has agreed that the South West will produce the Speaker of the House of Representatives if it assumes power next year.

Political parties had until Sunday to select their candidates.

"I think the best thing that has happened to the PDP is the emergence of Atiku today (tomorrow) as presidential candidate".
