“It Would Only Take A Miracle For Us Not To Win The Election In 2019”- Senator Makarfi

In a meeting on Monday at its national headquarters, the members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) boasted about their intentions for the 2019 elections.

The party has said that if restructuring plan continues as planned, it will only take a miracle for them not to win the 2019 elections.

The National Caretaker Committee chairman of the party, Senator Ahmed Makarfi said:
“If PDP sustains the current effort at rebuilding its structures, I assure you it would only take a miracle for us not to win the election in 2019.”

Makarfi who had just come out of a victorious tussle with Ali Modu for the position of the chairman stressed that the party will not punish anyone who played a role in the leadership struggle between him and Senator Ali Modu Sheriff

He said, “While we are reconciling, we will not give what belongs to a person to another. We intend to bring everybody on board and then move our party forward.”

Former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan also expressed his delight and went further to make positive comments about the intentions of the party.

Dr. Goodluck said, “Today is day of joy for all of us, I decided to come to this meeting not to present any speech but. I came to thank the leaders and members of the party. I felt that this first meeting is the best time to come and thank you all for standing with the party.

I believe that key decisions are going to be made tonight on how to chart the way forward. Let us cooperate with the party leadership to rebuild the party. All our efforts within this period should be geared towards rebuilding the party.

In spite of negative tantrums against PDP, it is still the party of all Nigerians.”

PDP Governors’ Forum chairman, Governor Ayo Fayose added that, “APC will soon die for PDP to inherit power. If your brother is alive, you will not inherit his property. He will need to die before you inherit his property. These people must go; I say they must go. Now the coast is clear. This party must bounce back, we must regain the confidence of Nigerians.”

The Ekiti State Governor also urged that all members go back to their villages and work hard for success and stop being Abuja politicians.

Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu who tagged PDP as a ‘Beetle’ as well as Uche Secondus, Nyesom Wike, Dairus Ishaku, Senators David Mark, Godswill Akpabio and many others were in attendance at the meeting.
