Makarfi Speaks On ‘Senatorial Ambition’ After Losing PDP Presidential Ticket

Former Kaduna state governor, Ahmed Makarfi has denied vying for 2019 ticket to the Senate.

Makarfi was one of the presidential aspirants at the national convention of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, held in Rivers state.

The erstwhile PDP national caretaker committee chairman, in a statement on Sunday by his media aide, Mukhtar Sirajo, stated that he never participated in Senatorial primary election.

Sirajo said: “The attention of Senator Ahmed Makarfi has been drawn to rumours 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”.
