Makarfi Replies Wike On Planting Of Moles: PDP Also Planted Moles In Opposition by 10Ebisco: 8:30am On Sep 22, 2018
A former Governor of Kaduna State, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has reacted to the claim by Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has planted some presidential aspirants within the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Makarfi, one of the presidential aspirants on the PDP platform, spoke in an interview with journalists in Abuja.

Wike had on more than one occasion cried out that the APC had planted some of the aspirants jostling for the sole presidential ticket of the main opposition party.

But reacting to the Governor’s claim, Makarfi said he doubted if any of the presidential candidates were on such mission, but admitted that infiltration of opposition camps was normal in politics.

“In politics, even when PDP was in power, I know that PDP tried to infiltrate other political parties,” he said.

“So, don’t expect that the party in power now will not try to infiltrate the opposition parties. That is a normal thing in politics.

“If you are in the opposition, you try to infiltrate the party in power to at least have first hand information on what is going on, same way the government will try to infiltrate the opposition to know what the opposition is planning.

“A mole may be one that is given a specific task to sabotage. I can’t say for sure that there is any aspirant that has been given a task to sabotage.

“But, espionage even among governments takes place, not to talk of among other political parties or groups.

“They are things we should expect actually, that is why everybody has to be doubly careful about the way they go about doing their politics; you don’t leave your flanks wide open.

“How did APC come to power in 2015? Openly, key members of PDP left and joined them. But that was not the fatal blow.

“The fatal blow was from those who actually remained in PDP but worked for APC. So, don’t rule out that people can also remain in APC, not because they like it, but because they may wish to work for us.

“I don’t rule out that. It happened in 2015 against the PDP, and it can happen in 2019 against the APC. So, I don’t want us to overplay this, because we may even be throwing away issue which can end up benefiting the party one way or the other. It all depends on how you look at it.

“PDP votes alone cannot make us win election, we need votes of everybody irrespective of political parties, including APC, and how we get the votes may not necessarily have to be a conventional way of politicking.

“I don’t want to go further than that, but winning election is not a clearly defined line, it is a way of politicking.

“If you really want to win election, especially to take away power from an incumbent in an African country, you need much more than conventional politics to achieve that.

“If you just stick to the conventional politics, you may never succeed in actually taking away that power.

“So, we should not be worried about that. We should be concerned more about what is going to keep us together.”

OK so PDP now has presidential aspirant moles, this would bring a lot of non trust and implosion in a party that suppose to be in opposition.

The so called moles in APC are almost empty, saraki,dogara were the actual moles.

On the contrary, APC will majorly prefer Atiku, he has the biggest baggage among the contestants.
His dossier is in the cooler, and will be an easy ride for Bubu grin

The PDP are fond of doing this, they always put a mole to distablize the opposition. They used Ali Modu Sherif too, in 2011.

The truth is, every bad politics APC are doing, PDP has done worst in the past.

By what time God will hearken unto our cries in Nigeria, we shall be like those who dream...

The in-fighting and telling on each other will be to our collective good...so, I say let the rumble, rumble on...


Redemption is certain my people....

We can be held down for but a while, certainly, confusion shall descend in their camps causing them to turn on each other and igniting the flames to usher in our freedom from their shackles.

God no dey sleep...

Whether na APC oo, PDP oo, SDP oo ati be be loooo...

The enemies of the great people of Nigeria, and Nigeria as a country shall be staring at peace from not too far from them, but touching or reaching peace shall be an uphill task and impossibility to them...

We shall conquer my people...
