2007 presidential race: No hard feelings towards Obasanjo —Makarfi

Posted 4 months, 2 wks ago
The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party’s Caretaker Committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has said he has no hard feelings towards anybody.

Makarfi stated this on Friday in his response to the Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose’s interview in the current edition of The Interview magazine.

Fayose had in the interview said Obasanjo stopped Makarfi and ex-Vice-President Atiku Abubakar from emerging as the PDP presidential nominee for the 2007 election.

The Ekiti State governor, who headed the PDP National Committee that searched for the party’s presidential candidate in the said election, claimed that Obasanjo said Makarfi was too smart to be controlled.

Fayose listed members of the then-committee to include a former Governor of Gombe State, Senator Danjuma Goje; Makarfi; ex-Kwara State Governor and Senate President, Bukola Saraki; and a former Delta State Governor, Chief James Ibori.

Fayose stated that the majority of the members of the committee were disposed to having Makarfi as the presidential candidate.

He said, “As a loyal Obasanjo boy then, I went to Obasanjo and told him that in the committee that was set up, everybody seemed to prefer Makarfi, except one person and I who were in the minority.”
