2019 presidency: How APC is making it possible for PDP to return to power‎ – Makarfi


Ahmed Makarfi, former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, National Caretaker Committee, has said the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress, APC, is making thing easier for PDP to return to power in 2019.

The former Kaduna State governor made the remark while expressing optimism that Nigerians would vote Buhari out in 2019.

Speaking with Vanguard, Makarfi said, “No serious party will want to continue to remain as an opposition party. The role of any opposition party is to take over power and that is what we set our eyes on right now.

“And I want to thank APC for actually making our job easier and I continue to pray that APC continues to make our job easier as we move closer to elections.

“I do not pray Nigerians continue to suffer and that is why I believe Nigerians will make the right choice by voting out the party in power.

“As to our preparations, all I can say is that we are doing all that is legally and politically doable to achieve our objectives. It would be inappropriate for me to give a hint of what we are doing or what we are planning.

“It will amount to someone going to a battlefront and publishing your war plans, you have as well committed suicide before going for the war.

“We keep our plans to our chest but be rest assured we are used to the politicking and we shall leave no stone unturned.”
