The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party’s Caretaker Committee, Ahmed Makarfi, has said he has no hard feelings towards Obasanjo or anybody.


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

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

According to him, “Obasanjo used me to wreck the presidential ambition of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and the chance of former Kaduna State governor, Ahmed Makarfi, of becoming the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in 2007.”

He said that Obasanjo also used him to attack former Abia State Governor, Orji Kalu, among other political foes.

Makarfi; ex-Kwara State Governor and Senate President, Bukola Saraki; and a former Delta State Governor, Chief James Ibori.

In an interview with Punch, Makarfi cleared all dust saying, “Whatever happened is history. No hard feelings towards anybody. God gives power to whom He wishes and takes at will. President Obasanjo was my leader and remains one of my leaders.”
