The Immediate past National Caretaker Committee Chairman of the major opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi is confident PDP will defeat the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) at the 2019 Presidential polls if his presidential ambition is supported.
He said in Jos, “if supported as the presidential candidate of the Party officially I am absolutely sure that we will be able to return PDP to power come 2019. Winning election is not about one individual, it is all about the PDP movement, it is all about the people. The PDP supported me when I was Chairman Caretaker committee and we were able to resuscitate PDP and the Party is seen by Nigerians and all over the world as an alternative government in waiting”.
Makarfi also revealed his campaign strategy for the election.
“We will not politicize security matter, it is a matter which affects everybody, one thing that this government has done is trying to politicize security, PDP government will not politicize security matter, we will work with everybody, we will work with traditional rulers, we will work with religious leaders, community leaders, it will be fair, justice and equity for all without any kind of discrimination. We will give the security agencies the enablement to perform and if this is done, they must perform or we will use the stick and carrot approach and those who cannot perform they will be shown the way out”, he stressed.
