The Kaduna State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has mounted pressure on the former governor of the State, Ahmed Makarfi to contest the 2019 presidential election.
The stakeholders of the party, in a major re-grouping after the 2015 elections, described the former Kaduna governor, who is now a Senator of the Federal Republic, as the “best material” for the nation’s top job.
Former Kaduna governor Ramalan Yero, in an address at the meeting, said that the PDP is proud of Makarfi’s performance during the trying period of the party, when he served as the chairman of its National Caretaker Committee.
He said that Makarfi’s ability to organize a successful National Convention was also a proof that he was a good manager of situations.
“Clearly, Makarfi is the best man for the top job after successfully leading the party out of the crises that almost confined it to the dust bins of history,” he said.
Ramalan later called for a voice endorsement and received a thunderous support for the former governor.
