The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) must avoid the mistake of choosing the wrong candidate or be swallowed in self-confidence with the belief that it would clinch victory in next year’s presidential election without proper homework, a presidential aspirant and former caretaker committee chairman of the party, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has said.
Addressing delegates in the Enugu State chapter of the party in Enugu yesterday, Makarfi, a former governor of Kaduna State, emphasized that it would be wrong of the party to give its presidential ticket to a candidate that could not be entrusted with the hopes and expectations of millions of Nigerians, adding: “Where we’re making a choice, we must make a choice among those we know. We cannot afford to err, we make one mistake this time and we’re in for it. We must not assume that we can pick any candidate and make a mistake that we will live to regret.”

He said he was in Enugu to intimate the delegates on his intention to contest for the party’s presidential ticket in next year’s election,
Makarfi said: “The problem of Nigeria is restructuring, we must restructure Nigeria. Restructuring is the policy of the PDP. The policy of the PDP is to restructure Nigeria for the benefit of all Nigerians. When we’re talking about restructuring, we must not forget institutional restructuring. We cannot have public institutions answerable to one political leader. Even INEC needs to be restructured, we have to find a way of having political parties represented in INEC. Any time INEC is about to do something that contradicts the norms, the parties can say no, this is not the way.”
Markafi, who described his visit to Enugu as a homecoming, having attended Federal Government College, Enugu in the 1970s, added that his government would also restructure electricity generation and distribution to ensure that the rot in the system is completely eradicated.
The state PDP chairman, Mr. Augustine Nnamani, said Makarfi represents intelligence, energy and integrity.
