The immediate past Caretaker Committee Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has said that the Social Democratic Party, SDP, and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP may work together in 2019.
Makarfi said this when he fielded questions from The Sun, where he also described the defection of Jerry Gana to the SDP as a major mistake.
Asked about Gana’s defection, the former Governor of Kaduna State said, “If you had a mind set the possibility is that irrespective of what happens you may follow your mind. So it was not something basically new.
“I respect him. I still do. But I think it is a classical error and mistake because go to where he comes from; who has followed him to SDP?
“If he is talking within the context of Middle Belt and North Central colouration, who and who has followed him to SDP? It’s a major mistake.
“But I tell you and assure you PDP and SDP as political parties have been working together. I still cannot rule out the possibility of PDP and SDP working together.”
Asked if the two parties have worked together before, he added, “Of course; that is where the allegation of Chief Olu Falae collecting money for the party to campaign for Jonathan came from.
“So we are still working together and I am not ruling out PDP, SDP and other parties working together.”
