Former governor of Kaduna State and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Mohammed Ahmed Makarfi has said that the altercation between former President Olusegun Obasanjo and the PDP Board of Trustees (BoT) chairman Senator Walid Jibrin over the party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is unnecessary.

“What former president Olusegun Obasanjo and Senator Walid Jibril said were unnecessary and they shouldn’t have spoken in that form. All we need now is how to move our party forward for the task of forming government in 2023.”
