PDP will wipe away Nigerians’ sorrow; banish unemployment, insecurity and hunger – Makarfi


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has promised to liberate Nigerians from the shackles of poverty by making cash available to Nigerians and save them from the unemployment, insecurity, and hunger unleashed on them by the All Progressives Party (APC) if voted into power in 2019.

The chairman of the PDP’s caretaker committee, Ahmed Makarfi, made the pledge at the party’s special non-elective national convention in Abuja.
Makarfi said his party would make money available to Nigerians and wipe their tears and deliver to them desirable dividends of democracy.

The PDP vowed to wrest power from the ruling party, stating that the former ruling party had rebounded and was ready to pursue policies that would take Nigeria out of recession and into the Promised Land.
Former President Goodluck Jonathan, who attended the convention, took a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration insisting that the PDP remains the country’s largest party. He debunked the suggestion that the national economy would have been in worse shape if the PDP had been voted into power in 2015, adding that the party had a competent economic team in place.
“The PDP is set to reclaim its position as a party to lead Nigerians to greatness. As in [any] human institution, we cannot claim to be perfect. No. Obviously, as a political party, our accomplishments up to 2015 are clear for everybody to see,” said the former President.
In his speech at the convention, Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State claimed that Nigerians had entered what he described as ‘One Chance.’

He said: “Nigerians entered ‘One Chance,’ and they have to go. In fact, they have gone. This arena is a testimony of what is happening in Nigeria. PDP is now a religion and a belief that we are going back to our Villa. These people inside there, they don’t know what they are doing. I called them ‘Power miss road.’ We will take you out of this ‘One Chance’ and give you many chances.”
The convention, which woke up a lethargic Abuja, was attended by over 5000 party faithful including over 3000 delegates.
The influx of such people into the nation’s capital saw a lot of people making brisk business as hoteliers, eatery owners and taxi drivers claim making profits they have long forgotten of.
