Chairman of the PDP National Caretaker Committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, said the party did not at any time adopt any concession plan on automatic ticket for Atiku at the detriment of other contenders.
He maintained that there was no other party that was truly settled outside APC, adding that even the Peoples' Democratic Party (PDP) was not stable because it was still fighting to get a chairman. When we founded this party, we founded it based on the tenets of democracy, integrity and good governance.
"The lack of internal democracy, disregard for the party's constitution, irregular schedule of meetings, inability to conduct a convention, the absence of a Board of Trustees and arrogance of the party leadership will bring about the impending doom. And that is to make sure that we build an all-inclusive party, where every part of this country will have a sense of belonging and sense of participation", he added.

"It is true. We are expecting him on Tuesday, which is tomorrow (today)".
"If the delegates have the interest of the party at heart, they must shun all forms of financial inducement and vote according to their conscience". Because we still remain the only true Democratic Party in the true sense of the word.
