Makarfi speaks on plans for Nigeria if elected
A former Kaduna state governor Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi says the People’s Democratic Party PDP if elected will not politicize security in the country as it would give the security agencies every support they need to make every part of the country safe.
Makarfi was speaking in Jos, the Plateau state capital on Wednesday while addressing PDP executives and National delegates at the State Secretariat.
“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, and with that 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.
“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,” he said.
According to Makarfi, winning the 2019 election was not about one individual but about the PDP movement and the people of Nigeria.
