PDP Govs' Parley on Consensus Chairman Deadlocked”

"If you play that game (disqualification of candidates based on pending EFCC case), that will be playing into the hands of the government in such a way that every one of us can be charged to court so that PDP will have no candidate", Chairman, National Caretaker Committee of PDP, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, said in Kaduna while playing host to one of the aspirants, Gbenga Daniel, at the weekend.
