1. Massive Support from PDP Leaders

 Stakeholders in the party are clamouring for David Mark and Ahmed Makarfi to Succeed Uche Secondus, but according to, David Mark is not interested in the Chairmanship of the party. What he wants is the position of BoT (Board of Trustees) Chairman. Thus, the Governors might rally round Makarfi to become the Next PDP National Chairman.

Also, From 1998 till date, the North-Central has produced Five National Chairmen (Solomon Lar, Barnabas Gemade, Ahmadu Ali, Kawu Baraje and Audu Ogbe), While the North-East has produced Bamanga Tukur and Adamu Mu'azu. But the North-West where Makarfi hails from has only produced an Acting National Chairman, Mohammed Haliru Bello.

2. Political Experience and Antecedent

Makarfi is a Founding Member of the PDP, He has held Top Position under the Party's Platform. Makarfi has previously served as a Two-term Governor, Senator and Acting National Chairmanship of the PDP. Thus, he has the required Politcal Experience, Knowledge of Party Administration and Competence to take over from Secondus as the National Chairman.
