Chairman of the Caretaker Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi has revealed that the factional chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff wants to become the presidential candidate of the party in 2019.

Makarfi who spoke in an interview with Daily Trust said those already linking PDP issues to 2019 were right.

“It was known to the majority of the people that the former chairman, Modu Sheriff, assumed he was already the presidential candidate of the PDP and offering the position of running mate to different governors," Makarfi said.

“We want to be allowed to finish this job within three months and go. So where is the hidden agenda here? Nobody has heard us campaign for any individual to succeed us. There is absolutely no hidden agenda for the Caretaker Committee. We want people to elect their national officers freely,” he said.

He expressed the readiness of the caretaker committee to step down if its the decision of the party's leadership in other to give peace a chance.

“They (party leaders) have been trying to make Sheriff see reasons why there should be peace. And whatever they come out with in the spirit of peace, even if it means that we vacate our positions, we will do so,” he added.
