Senator Buruji Kashamu has accused Ahmed Makarfi, National Caretaker Committee Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party, of disorganising the South-West geopolitical zone of the party because of his 2019 presidential ambition.
Kashamu, who spoke in a statement in Abuja on Monday, alleged that Makarfi had been “illegally tinkering duly elected state executives with the intention of substituting them with allies sympathetic to his ambition.”
He said, “He has been going about like a sole administrator with timeless tenure under the disguise of solving one problem or another.
“Makarfi has allowed his egocentric presidential ambition to blindfold him. He has disorganised the South-West PDP with his cohorts for selfish ambition.
“As if the disorganisation of the South-West structure is not enough; Makarfi has clandestinely abdicated the leadership role of ensuring an acceptable micro-zoning. He left the national chairmanship, hitherto conceded to the South-West, for a free-for-all among the three southern zones.”
However, Markafi, former governor of Kaduna State, had consistently denied he was nursing a presidential ambition.
