Makarfi to woo OBJ, Atiku, Saraki back to PDP

National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Ahmed Markarfi has revealed that he is working on a plan to bring back former members and political heavyweights, Olusegun Obasanjo, Bukola Saraki and Atiku Abubakar to the party.

Speaking with Sunday Punch, Makarfi stated that a peace committee has been setup at national and Zonal levels to tackle that problem.

“There is a plan to mobilize many people. We inaugurated the peace committee at the national and zonal levels and we have given them terms of reference to their work in terms of reconciliation and mobilization. We hope they succeed in wooing these people back to the PDP. The PDP will field a strong candidate from the North to face (President Muhammadu) Buhari or whoever the APC presents. Buhari must go in 2019.

I honestly don’t see him winning a second term because we have concluded plans to defeat the APC in 2019. I believe the PDP will win that presidential election once we field a good candidate.”
