“We have said before and we stand by what we had said earlier, the APC is an alliance of strange bedfellows, we don’t see it lasting as a political party.”

Commenting on PDP leadership crisis, Makarfi said the party is currently rebuilding.

“We have come out of our problem, out of the legal issues that took a lot of our time and resources and right now, we are rebuilding. We are bringing harmony and reconciliation across the country,” he said.
