Former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Caretaker Committee Chairman and presidential aspirant, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has said that all the party’s aspirants for presidential primaries are working together to ensure the defeat of President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019.

Besides, he said the criticism about him against former Vice President Atiku Abubakar was false.

A statement by his spokesman, Malam Mukthar Sirajo yesterday, said “for the avoidance of doubt, Senator Makarfi wishes to make it clear that he holds former Vice President Atiku Abubakar in a very high esteem and that the relationship between them is very cordial and mutually respectful.”

“We want to categorically state that that could just be an inference drawn by the reporters from the answer the distinguished senator gave to one of their questions during his engagement with them.

“His answer was that one did not need to be loaded to lead,” the statement said.
