Atiku’s return to PDP: I’m not excluded for aspiring to be president — – Makarfi

The main players in the race for the Presidency in 2019 is heating up.

And the possibility of former vice-president, Atiku Abubakar, is also not reducing the tally of aspirants.

The out-going Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party  (PDP) Caretaker Committee, Ahmed Makarfi, said he could still contest the party’s presidential ticket.

Makarfi stated this in an interview published in the current edition of The Interview magazine, noting that Atiku had earlier left the PDP and had come back.

When asked about his interest to run, Makarfi said, “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.”

Makarfi also said in the interview that Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose’s declaration of interest in the party’s presidential ticket, “is uncalled for and unhealthy.”

“We are expecting a harvest of defections from the APC. Wait a bit and you will see the influx of people into the PDP,” he added.
