PDP Never Endorsed Fayose Presidential Ambition – Makarfi

Senator Ali Makarfi

The Caretaker Committee Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi, disclosed that party would only decide who to support for President during its next elective convention.

Makarfi said the party is yet to endorse Governor Ayodele Fayose’s presidential ambition.

He said, “There were many people at the convention who indicated their political interests at the convention. It was not only Fayose.

“There were two other former governors who had posters about their bids. The convention was not elective and has nothing to do with the endorsement of anybody.

“There were also posters of those eyeing governorship and other positions. Would you say they were also endorsed? No!”

No grudges

On the leadership tussle with Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, Makarfi said he bears no grudge against Sheriff, adding that the party won’t expel Sheriff except he wants to leave on his own.

He added, “It is not up to us for him to remain here. It is his choice. Many people, who are his supporters, were at the convention. They participated in various committees at the convention. Individuals will make their personal decision.”
