FORMER Minister of Transport, Chief Ebenezer Babatope, on Friday added his voice as he joined those calling for immediate resignation of Chairman, Caretaker Committee of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi and all his exco members, saying all the affected had virtually and entirely compromised their positions.
Besides, Babatope also demanded that the party’s national convention, scheduled to hold on December 9, 2017 in Abuja, the country’s Federal Capital should be postponed for at least one month to ensure that all the “corrupt and crooked contraptions of Makarfi are removed to allow a sane and more objective interregnum.”
This was just as he threatened that the Yoruba people, who he said were now poised and ready to claim what was deservedly theirs if they were denied the chairmanship of the party, would walk out of the PDP and pursue their fortunes somewhere else.
Making the calls to Saturday Tribune, Chief Babatope, alleged that the PDP national chairman, Makarfi, was secretly nursing presidential ambition and, therefore, scheming to install an aspirant from South- South, Mr Uche Secondus as PDP new chairman.
