The National Caretaker Committee Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has said that the PDP is the only alternative to the “misrule of the ruling All Progressives Congress.
He spoke both in Ede at the award of scholarship to indigent students from Osun West Senatorial District by Senator Ademola Adeleke and at the Unity Luncheon in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.
According to him, the country has suffered enough in the hands of the APC.
He promised that the PDP would rescue the nation from its “present hard time.”
He said: “With the PDP. We are going to have good-time governance under rain under shine. No doubt we had our problems but we will not run away from it.
”What we have now is a government and a party of denial. Anything you say even when they know is the truth, they will still find excuses, they will never accept that they erred. When you don’t accept that you erred, there is no way will correct the mistakes for the benefit of the people. In PDP, we err and we accept it.
“Nigeria has suffered enough and God will emancipate Nigerians by returning the PDP to power both at the Federal and at the state levels.”
Responding, Senator Ademola Adeleke appealed to PDP in Osun to close ranks and work together for a common goal as the 2018 governorship election in the state is drawing closer.
He said: “This is the greatest challenge, that all well-meaning members of the PDP in the state, should saddle themselves with by closing ranks with a view to presenting a credible and sellable candidate that will effortlessly win the governorship election and take over the Bola Ige House, Abere.
“Let us, as a party avoid rancour, mudslinging, pull him down syndrome and other vices, that may endanger, God forbid, our chances of winning the 2018 governorship election.”
The post PDP is alternative to APC, says Markafi appeared first on The Nation Nigeria.
