PDP condoles with Makarfi over father’s death
The national leadership has, on behalf of the entire Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) family, condoled with the former Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee of the party Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi over the death of his father, Malam Muhammad Makarfi.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday by Kola Ologbondiyan, its National Publicity Secretary, the PDP said it was deeply saddened by the news of the passing of Malam Makarfi, a devoted statesman and devout Muslim, who dedicated his life to the service of God, stability and growth of our dear nation and the good of humanity at large.
“Though we intensely mourn, the PDP draws solace in the fact that Malam Makarfi lived a fulfilled life and bequeathed to our nation an outstanding patriot in Senator Makarfi,” the statement said.
It stated that the former Governor of Kaduna state’s commitment to national development as Governor, Senator of the Federal Republic as well as the sacrifices he made in stabilizing and repositioning the PDP during its trying time spoke volume of the lessons he must have received from his father.
The PDP, therefore, condoled with the entire Makarfi family and prayed the Almighty God to grant them and their loved ones the fortitude to bear this huge loss.
