Former governor of Kaduna State, Makarfi speaks on IBB endorsing Atiku for presidency

A former governor of Kaduna State, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has insisted he is not bothered by the meeting between former vice-president, Atiku Abubakar and ex-Military Head of State, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida last week.

Makarfi, who also served as the Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is now one of the over 12 presidential aspirants of the party.
In an interview with Daily Trust, Makarfi stated that he is not interested in rumours and permuations.
“I also read in the papers that IBB endorsed Atiku. But I think we should run away from permutations and deal with reality. And the reality is that primaries would be conducted; and the party has promised open and transparent primaries.
“But it is good if the party and those aspiring can come together to try and see how they can make it less complex.
“It is up to the aspirants, as you can’t force anybody out of contesting.
“That would be undemocratic, and as our name indicates, we are the People’s Democratic Party,” he said.
