PDP
Senator Ahmed Makarfi

Caretaker chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ahmed Makarfi, has refuted media reports that he plans to contest during the 2019 presidential election.

Makarfi, in a statement on Wednesday by Mukhtar Sirajo, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, said he had not confirmed an interest for any political position.

“The attention of Senator Ahmed Makarfi has been drawn to reports in some sections of the media, which seem to suggest that he has confirmed an interest in seeking to fly the flag of PDP in 2019,” the statement read.

“This is not a very true reflection of what the distinguished Senator gave out in a chat with some newsmen couple of days ago.

“Senator Ahmed Makarfi wishes to assure the teeming members and supporters of the PDP and indeed the entire country that his own major preoccupation at the moment is to discharge the responsibility given to him to lead the process of repositioning the party, which he hopes will culminate in the conduct of a very credible and transparent convention this Saturday. This is what matters the most to him at this moment.”
