Makarfi working for Wike to impose PDP chairman - Kashamu

He has been campaigning day and night across the six zones, selling our redemption messages to PDP delegates, urging all aspirants to get ready for the convention and stop games of distractions.

The PDP leaders, who lampooned Governor Fayose over his decision, argued that the chairmanship position has been zoned to the Southwest.

Senator Buruji Kashamu (PDP Ogun East), has accused Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Caretaker Committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi of manipulating party structure and activities in favour of his 2019 presidential ambition.

He said that while the party's presidential ticket was zoned to the North, the position of chairman was zone to the South, without specific reference to States or geopolitical region.

Bejide described the governor's action as an "imposition that will not be allowed to stand", saying Olusola's adoption is "dead on arrival, immoral, illegal and irresponsible".

The Governor of Ekiti state and Chairman of the Forum, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, said that the party's national convention, schedule for December 9, would be a world class event that other political parties would emulate.

"We discover of late that our brothers in the South-South said they want to contest the national chairmanship".

"All other aspirants, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, Senator Biodun Olujimi, Ambassador Dare Bejide, Bisi Omoyeni and myself are all working together to ensure that there is no imposition of any candidate in PDP in this state".

"God will forbid a situation in which our (national) chairman, after being elected at the convention will be having an EFCC case hanging on his neck for him not to be sent back to jail". The chairman is to come from the South.

Chief George spoke in Port Harcourt when he was received at PDP's zonal secretariat by the party's Zonal Chairman, South-South, Mr. Emmanuel Ogidi.

"Because when one of us becomes the governor under a peaceful, free and fair atmosphere, there will be no problem for our party members and there will no crisis in our state and it will not be possible for APC to defeat us". Secondus was national chairman in acting capacity for a long time and it is quite uncharitable for any leader in the Southwest to now go ahead to canvass for anybody outside our zone.

"I want to believe that Nigeria is of age to conduct elections that will be acceptable at home and overseas, and we want to believe that we will take the day on the 18th of this month in the Anambra governorship election", he said.
