The National Caretaker Committee Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi, says the party is the only veritable alternative to rescuing the country from its present hard time ocassioned by the All Progressives Congress bad governance.
Makarfi said this in Ede, State of Osun on Wednesday at the award of scholarship to indigent students from Osun West Senatorial District by Senator Ademola Adeleke as part of his election promises.
” What we have now is a government and a party of denial. Anything you say even when they know is the truth, they will still find excuses , they will never accept that they erred. When you don’t accept that you erred, there is no way will correct the mistakes for the benefit of the people. In PDP, we err and we accept it.
“Nigeria has suffered enough and God will emancipate Nigerians by returning the PDP to power both at the Federal and at the state levels.”
While speaking at the event, Sen. Adeleke appealed to PDP in Osun to close ranks and work together for a common goal as the 2018 governorship election in the state is drawing closer.
He said, ” This is the greatest challenge, that all well meaning members of the PDP in the state, should saddle themselves with by closing ranks with a view to presenting a credible and sellable candidate that will effortlessly win the governorship election and take over the Bola Ige House, Abere.
“Let us, as a party avoid rancour, mudslinging, pull him down syndrome and other vices, that may endanger, God forbid, our chances of winning the 2018 governorship election.”
Adeleke appealed to PDP leaders who were yet to sheath their swords to do so and work for the party to win the poll and bring succor to the people of Osun State
