The embattled chairman of PDP, Ali Modu Sheriff alleged that Makarfi and Senator Ben Obi are planning to field an APC chieftain as the party’s presidential candidate in 2019.

Daily Post reports that the caretaker committee spokesman, Prince Dayo Adeyeye said “The public is kindly reminded to recall that it was barely two weeks ago the former chairman alleged that Senator Ahmed Makarfi is only pursuing his Presidential ambition and not concerned about the job given the Committee by the National Convention. Now, he has changed the story.

“The public is also kindly reminded that one of the problems that led to the removal of Senator Ali Modu Sheriff was attempting to convert himself from a 3 months chairman to not only a substantive chairman but the party’s presidential candidate for 2019. He went further to start offering running mate position to different individuals."

“It is also a fact that as soon as Senator Ali Modu Sheriff was appointed as chairman, many founding members of the Party left it. On the other hand, as soon as the national caretaker committee was appointed, people started retracing their steps back to the Party," Adeyeye said.

Meanwhile, the former Governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido, said the current crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is an indication that the party is strong.
