PDP Will Bounce Back to Unseat APC In 2019 – Ahmed Makarfi



Interim National Chair­man, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and a former governor of Kaduna State, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has said that the party is only on sabbatical leave, and that it will bounce back in 2019 to unseat the ruling All Progres­sives Congress (APC).

Also speaking in the same vein, Chairman, reconcilia­tion committee of PDP, Se­riake Dickson of Bayelsa State, expressed optimism that the PDP would come out of the present crisis stronger than the APC.

Both Makarfi and Dick­son addressed some of the PDP supporters shortly be­fore they went into a closed door meeting in Makarfi ‘s residence.

They agreed that there was the need for rec­onciliation and forgiveness among stakeholders of the party who may have felt of­fended in one way or the other.

“PDP will bounce back, and in Kaduna we are only on sabbatical, we have a formidable team. We need to reconcile, we need to ac­knowledge where we went wrong. It is a good virtue to say sorry where you are wrong. It is a good virtue to reconcile,” Makarfi said.

Appealing to the party faithful, Dickson said: “No doubt in the cause of events, we must have hurt each oth­er. On behalf of all, as chair­man of the caretaker com­mittee, I wish to apologise to all, from whichever side they belong, who feel hurt by whatever means. Litigation may just give you a legal vic­tory, but it may not give you a permanent peace and har­mony amongst your family.”

“He explained that he was in Kaduna to consult with stakeholders on how to move the party forward.

“I am in Kaduna to consult with our National Chairman who is one of the respected leaders of our party and of our country. I am here to consult with him on the way forward for our coun­try,” he said.

Dickson enjoined contending forces to embrace the option of dialogue to settle all disagree­ments.

“People should resort to political solution and politi­cal solution comes by engage­ment, meetings and interaction of party leaders not litigation in the law courts,” he admonished party supporters.
