The Chairman of the caretaker committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi has accused the embattled factional chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff of priding himself as the presidential candidate for 2019.

Speaking during an interview, Makarfi said Sheriff did not only position himself as 2019 candidate but also gave the position of running mate to different governors.

“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.

“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 furthered that the leaders of the party have been doing all they could to restore peace in the party.

 “They 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.”

 “I have to be honest and sincere; I have not seen the evidence of government as an entity. Maybe some individuals from the party in power are interfering, purely for local interests. We have seen traces of that”, he stated.
