Former Presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ahmed Makarfi, has denied reports that he is vying for a senatorial ticket.
In a statement on Sunday by his media aide, Mukhtar Sirajo, the former chairman of the PDP disclosed that he never participated in Senatorial primary election.
Sirajo said: “The attention of Senator Ahmed Makarfi has been drawn to rumors going round to the effect that he is planning to contest for a senatorial seat in the 2019 elections. Nothing can be further from the truth.
“Senator Makarfi wishes to make it clear that he has no such plan as he did not participate in primaries for any senatorial ticket.
“His position is that, in accordance with democratic norms, all winners should, as of right be allowed to fly the party flags for the respective primaries they won.
“He believes that other people should be encouraged and given the chance to also contribute to the political process. This way, we will continue to widen the democratic space as well as deepen the process.”
