By: James Azania, Lokoja

Former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) caretaker chairman, Senator Ahmed Makarfi has cautioned the leadership of the party against giving undue advantage to returnee members and those defecting.

The former two-term governor of Kaduna State, while addressing the leadership of the Kogi State chapter of the party and other stakeholders Friday in Lokoja, said but for the steadfastness of committed members, PDP could have become history.

Offering himself for the presidential candidate of the party ahead of the 2019 general election, he recounted the difficult days of the party following after the 2015 poll, when the PDP lost power at the centre.

“Some people when you pinch them like this (touching his arm), they will run to another party. When the going was tough, I stayed on… but you accept them into your house and give them your guest room. Next, they take the Master Bedroom; next, they drive you out of your house. We must not allow this, nor give undue advantage to them, so that we do not alienate our people.

“Modu Sheriff was brought from another party; they said he had three jets; he had billions, but what did he do? He was taking the party down, but I, the ‘bush boy,’ with the support of others, I was able to make members close ranks, and today, we can all see”, he said.

He also delved on the vexed issue of restructuring, saying that only Nigerians can restructure the country, under a ‘trusted leadership’.

According to him: “We fought the battle together; the praise and credit I’m receiving, is to God and to all of us. To me, Kogi is home; when Alhaji Ibrahim Idris (Ibro) was governor, we use to come and spend weekends with him, Kogi remains a home to me.

“We have many problems confronting us in Nigeria; insecurity, lack of national consensus, hunger, poverty; our economy has gone down, but there are few people benefiting. Nigerians are in lack; they are not able to provide for their families, access good healthcare, and all sorts of deprivation. People are being witch-hunted.

“Some people talk of restructuring, but when they talk of restructuring, they talk of sharing money and resources. I tell you; we need institutional restructuring.

“Only Nigerians that can restructure Nigeria. People are asking for restructuring due to lack of belonging, lopsidedness in appointments, the feeling of being cheated, and so on. Who can restructure Nigeria, but Nigerians, with a leader that can be trusted. I offer that and much more.

“What I tell you is that now, if you’re in power, you’re right; if you’re in opposition, you’re wrong. We must get to a level in Nigeria, where if you’re a president, a governor, you can be charged for wrongdoing; not you being in power and witch-hunting every other person. That is turning Nigeria into a ‘Banana Republic’. We must therefore restructure our institutions.

“Gentlemen, a tree does not make a forest…they will come with bags of money. Collect, but do the right thing. There is no receipt”.

How the pdp manages the influx of these defectors will determine how they stand during the elections. They shouldn't turn out to be infectors.

My brother the national leader of PDP now is saraki the very one markafi is already delivering subtle jabs to. grin

What I see that will happen is that several will say they would rather scatter everything if it does not go to so and so.

Or many would move out along with their followers just to show saraki how weak he is and how important they are.

Its about to get real. They had a welcome dinner the other day now its time for them to power tussle. cheesy

That dinner was obviously done so they would have enough strength for this war that's about to go down within them .

Not surprised, its always about money to PDP...Shame. We nigerian masses ve decided that any person or people that will put their interest ahead of nigeria must be resisted by all means.

Last last na defect una go defect. You never see anything.

I pray APC doesn't accept any defectors to ensure a semblance of sanity in the system.

But APC being generally a weak party would embrace them all with open arms

one of the very few sensibles left in PDP, where was saraki, Tambuwal and some political prostitutes when markarfi and some other loyal party members fought with everything in their capacity to reclaim the party from the claw of Ali modu sheriff?

Now Bukoa saraki is the national leader of the party less than a week of his defection, what type of party is that?

Keep quiet.

PDP are known for transparent primaries.

I am sure the other candidates will support whoever emerges to dislodge the deadwood at Aso Rock.

The last time I checked, you dont support the PDP so what is exactly your concern/grouse.

The problem we have in Nigeria is the case of too many chiefs but few Indians...Everybody claims some kind of funny/devious expertise on politics even when it is vivid that they got no clue on what they are talking about.

There is such thing as expediency in politics. Saraki is the Senate President and I assume you know what that means. PDP need a rallying point in government so as to confront the tyrannical forces of APC. It is inconceivable to built something worthwhile on nothing.

The decision to appoint Saraki as a figurehead national leader of PDP was a masterstroke...You might not understand the dynamics since you are neither a politician nor have any working/functional knowledge on the workings of party politics.
