The National Caretaker Committee Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),Senator Ahmed Makarfi has said that its party is the only veritable alternative to rescue the country from its present hard time caused by the ruling All Progressivr Congress APC.
He noted that the country has not witnessed any meaningful development under APC’s leadership
Makarfi who spoke in Ede during the presentation of N250 million scholarship award to indigent students in Osun West Senatorial District by Senator Ademola Adeleke as part of his electioneering promises.
He said “With the PDP. We are going to have good-time governance under rain under shine. No doubt we had our problems but we will not run away from it.
” 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.”
Makarfi expressed happiness towards the promise of scholarship kept by Senator Ademola Adeleke adding that PDP would be fulfilling every promise made to Nigerians.
He urged members of the PDP, who had defected to return home while also appealing to those, who were yet to join the party to do so and join them to rescue Nigeria from suffering.
Speaking at the event, Sen. Ademola 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.”
He also 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
He said the scheme is a continuation of his late elder brother,Senator Isiaka Adeleke’s legacies and urged the beneficiaries drawn across the 10 local government areas in the West Senatorial District to make full use of the opportunity of given to them.
