The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaduna, at its executive committee meeting yesterday, endorsed former Caretaker Committee Chairman of the party, Senator Ahmed Makarfi to run for the number one political office in the country.
The party loyalists, who filled the conference hall at the state secretariat in Kawo, Kaduna, to capacity during the first of its kind meeting in recent times, expressed optimism that Makarfi was the right man for the job.
The immediate past governor of the state, Dr. Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, who was the first to address his party members asked them, if they would support Makarfi for president, a thunderous response of, ‘Nigeria, sai Makarfi’ rendered the air in affirmative.
But, when the meeting was over, Makarfi himself declined to talk to the press as he walked down the hall in company of other party’s bigwigs in the state.
