The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Caretaker Committee, AHMED MAKARFI, has said he could still contest the party’s presidential ticket despite ATIKU’s return to the party.
In an interview published in the current edition of a magazine, MAKARFI noted that ATIKU had earlier left the PDP and had come back.
When asked about his interest to run, MAKARFI said and i quote “By the time I leave as a caretaker committee chairman on December 9 or 10, there will still be 10 months to the party primaries. By any law or the party’s guidelines, I’m not excluded.” End of quote.
MAKARFI also said in the interview that the decision of the Ekiti State Governor, AYO FAYOSE to declare interest in the party’s presidential ticket was uncalled for.
