PDP Convention: We’ll elect, not anoint leaders – Makarfi


The chairman of the caretaker committee of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Ahmed Makarfi has inisisted that the forthcoming convention of the party would produce leaders for the party that would be elected and not anointed by some forces.

Inaugurating an 88 man committee on the zoning of the party’s position in Abuja Friday, Senator Makarfi said the era of limiting the party’s position to few individuals was over as the party would print as many forms as aspirants are ready to show interest.

“It is not going to be anointing, it is going to be an election. So we are not printing only one form for each office. And the committee has seven days to submit its report,” Makarfi said. “It doesn’t make sense at all for the chairman ship of the party and the Presidency is zoned to the North.

In party politics all sections should have a fair representation.  That was why the entire zoning arrangement was jettisoned” he explained.

Makarfi explained that with the quality of personnel in the committee “Whatever decision you make will be widely accepted by all. I do not see you coming up with recommendation that would be quarried.

Open the political landscape and not restricting the chairmanship of the party to one corner.”
