Former National Caretaker Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has said he would bring an end to the growing insecurity currently ravaging many parts of the country if elected president in 2019.
Makarfi, who stated this in Umuahia while addressing the Executive of the Peoples Democratic Party and statutory delegates on his presidential ambition, assured that there would be peace in the land if he becomes the president of the country come 2019.
He said Nigerians would be better off if he emerges as president because of his wealth of experience in governance.
“But like I had earlier said, if nominated by the party and elected by Nigerians, my priorities would be the issue of insecurity and stopping the killings in the country.
“Addressing the issue of national unity and promotion of what binds us together, addressing the issue of unemployment and creation as well as redistribution of wealth,” he said.
Speaking further, Makafi said: “When you say you have raised our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 7 per cent, yes, it is possible, but who benefited from the increase? That is the question!
“So, when you create wealth, it is only meaningful when it is legitimately and evenly distributed. You distribute wealth by creating employment, good paying jobs, not temporary jobs that people are paid peanuts and you begin to wonder whether the money being paid is transport money or a living wage.”
