Former National Committee Chairman and presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi, has expressed appreciation to his supporters across the country, for the faith, confidence and commitment shown to his presidential ambition.
In a statement issued by his spokesman, Mukhtar Dahiru Sirajo, Senator Makarfi said, “Though the groups are too numerous to mention, but several individuals, political, religious, traditional, students, youth and women groups as well as the various social media platforms, set up even without his knowledge and so many others are highly appreciated.”
He urged them to maintain their faith in the promise of this country by continuing to work tirelessly for its progress in whatever way possible.
He assured them that “though the election did not go our way, all hands must be on deck to ensure that the Country and Party are the eventual winners.”
“Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi wishes to convey his most sincere appreciation and gratitude to Almighty Allah for the peaceful and successful conclusion of the PDP convention in Port Harcourt, which culminated in the emergence of Wazirin Adamawa, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, GCON as the Party’s flag bearer.
“It is a fact that long before the convention, in fact, ever since he threw his hat into the ring of the quest for the nomination, Senator Makarfi had, at every turn, made it clear that that the contest, to him, was not a matter of life and death, believing in, and submitting to the prerogative of God to bestow power on whomsoever He wished.
“He also followed that up with a commitment to the party and others, to support whoever would eventually clinch the nomination.
“In keeping faith with that commitment, Senator Makarfi has already extended his congratulations to Wazirin Adamawa and reiterated his commitment to the success of the campaign in all ways,” the statement explained.
