The National chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ahmed Makarfi, was involved in an auto-crash on Abuja-Kaduna highway on Friday.
Dayo Adeyeye, spokesman of the party, who disclosed this in a statement, said the chairman escaped unhurt.
He said the vehicle conveying Makarfi to Kaduna was involved in a head-on collision with other vehicles on the highway.
“Earlier today, July 28, 2017, a vehicle conveying the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi, CON, was involved in a multiple collision with other vehicles along Abuja-Kaduna highway,” he said.
“However, we are happy to report that fortunately, the distinguished senator and all other passengers in his vehicle came out unhurt. This is to allay the fears of our party members, teeming supporters and well wishers who heard of the accident and have been making frantic calls; as well as those who may stumble on half-baked information.”
James Ocholi, former minister of state for labour and employment, his wife and son were killed in a fatal crash on the same road in 2015.
