Senator Buruji Kashamu, the Senator representing Ogun East, has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Caretaker Committee Chairman, Senator Ahmed Makarfi of causing crisis in the South- West zone of the PDP, because of his 2019 presidential ambition.
Kashamu said this in a statement on Monday, in Abuja.
“The activities of Sen. Makarfi have been everything to the contrary. He had been going about not even as elected national chairman with full tenure but much more ridiculously like a sole administrator with timeless tenure under the disguise of solving one problem or the other.”
He also said Makarfi’s presidential ambition had blinded him and that he “has disorganized the south-west PDP for selfish manipulations with his cohorts, chief amongst whom is the Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayo Fayose.
“As if the disorganization of the south-west structures 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.
“It is indeed, funny that makarfi that has evidently shown lack of requisite capacity to be National Chairman is dreaming of becoming the president of Nigeria. He is a bundle of betrayal even worse than senator Ali Modu Sheriff,” Kashamu said.
