“Whether Senator Makarfi has Presidential ambitions or not, we are not aware of that. The National Caretaker Committee is not aware of that and we have not opened the floodgate for people to begin to aspire for the position of the president".

The National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Dayo Adeyeye said this in a press conference held at the party secretariat on Wednesday.

Adeyeye stated that the National Caretaker Committee is committed to the conduct of a credible and transparent convention, saying the allegation of working in favour of one of the candidates is unfortunate.

“The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has not even released the timetable for the presidential election”, said Adeyeye who added that the PDP is concerned with “Putting in place a new leadership for the party which we hope will come up or emerge latest by December 9 or 10.”

On the allegation by George that the NCC was taking the party back on the track of impunity, Adeyeye responded:

“It pains us that on the one hand, Chief Bode George who is fully aware of the pains we are still going through in Lagos in order to fairly and equitably carry everybody on board to the extent that we are being accused by others as siding with him is the same person accusing us of impunity.”

“These people are very much divided and it has been a recurring decimal since 2003.”
