Former Governor of Kaduna State, Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi, has opined that to defeat the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming general elections in 2023, there is the need for a formidable and united Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Speaking when he received the Director-General of Save Southern Kaduna Group (SSKG), Mr Istifanus Audu Nimbia and his entourage on a private visit, he called for unity among members of the PDP.
In a statement from Mr Victor Mathew Bobai, Director Corporate Communications, Save Southern Kaduna Group (SSKG), Senator Makarfi observed that the immediate challenge facing the PDP in Kaduna State was to ensure that Southern Kaduna remained very united and support the nomination of Dr John Ayuba as the governorship running mate to Isah Ashiru in the 2023 governorship election.
Makarfi said, “John Ayuba is first of all from Southern Kaduna, therefore, going to the press to agitate against him is not the right thing to do without asking the PDP gubernatorial candidate the level of consultation he made before arriving at Dr John Ayuba.”
According to him, the youth should make positive agitation and demand for other lucrative positions where they can build experience and develop capacity for the future of Kaduna State and the country in general.
He believed that no society could develop without the input and positive contributions from the youth.
The former governor advised the youths to stop sending wrong signals and terrible narratives of hate and discouragement, urging them to see themselves as a united political front.
The PDP Leader encouraged the youths to always ask questions before taking certain decisions, assuring them that his doors were open and always available for them to come and interact with him on issues that need clarifications.
