Former chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party’s Caretaker Committee, Ahmed Makarfi has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of attempting to usurp power by trying to hunt down those who defected from the party.
just as he condemned several calls for the resignation of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
Makarfi while speaking at stakeholders meeting during his presidential campaign trip to Minna Niger state described the call for Saraki’s resignation as an attempt to breach the constitution of Nigeria.
“The position of the Senate President is a constitutional matter and not a party affair.” He said.
He claimed that the current administration has failed in developing the country.
“The APC administration has not done anything to develop infrastructures in the country.
” The roads are blocked, the waterways and railways have not been revived”, he added.
When asked if he will leave the opposition party, Makarfi said, “If I leave PDP, I leave politics, If I wanted to defect I would have done that long before now”.
He called on the leadership of the PDP to carefully manage the defections saying if it’s not properly managed it could have some negative effects on the party.
