PDP: Makarfi, Hunkuyi in fierce battle over senatorial slot

Ex-Governor of Kaduna State, Alhaji Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi is now seeking the senatorial ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Kaduna North having failed to secure the party’s presidential nomination.

Contending the ticket with him are Senator Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi who, himself failed to secure the PDP’s governorship ticket and Ahmad Rufai Shehu (Ubale) the only PDP member who initially obtained the party’s nomination form.

Shehu has approached the Federal High Court, Abuja to restrain the party from taking the ticket away from him.

He asked the court on Friday to prevail on PDP and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to stop the party from fielding either Makarfi or Hunkuyi.

According to investigation, both Makarfi and Hunkuyi are banking on the Kaduna North Senatorial ticket as their Plan B.
