PDP chairman, Makarfi survives auto crash

The chairman of the caretaker committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi was involved in an auto crash on the Abuja-Kaduna expressway.

This was made known in a statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr Dayo Adeyeye, who said the incident occurred in the early hours of Friday.

He explained that the vehicle conveying Senator Makarfi was involved in a multiple collision with other vehicles on the expressway.

He added that Senator Makarfi and all other occupants of his vehicle came out unhurt, assuring party members, and supporters that the Party’s caretaker committee chairman is well.

This is coming few weeks after the Supreme Court declared the Makarfi Caretaker Committee as validly constituted.

The 3-man Supreme Court panel led by Justice Olabode Rhodes-Vivour, ruled that Senator Ali-Modu Sheriff ceased to be the party’s national chairman and ordered Ahmed Makarfi to take over the leadership of the party.

The ruling officially brought an end to the crisis that had rocked the Party for over a year, with some saying that Nigeria now has a viable opposition.
