Formular 019: No chance for any mistakes, Mark warns the PDP

Going by the decision of the Non-elective National Convention of the country's opposition party which held in Abuja on Saturday 12, August 2017, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Caretaker Committee has extended, by four months, the tenure of Senator Ahmed Makarfi as the Caretaker Committee Chairman.

Speaking also at the non-elective national convention, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State said Nigerians have tasted the bitterness of the APC in contrast with what the PDP can offer.

‎Sule Lamido, the Party's Presidential aspirant on his own stormed the arena with several branded vehicles with his supporters amidst dancing and drumming.

The National Caretaker Committee (NCC) headed by Senator Ahmed Makarfi will friday hold a press conference in Abuja to intimate its members on what to expect at tomorrow's event which will take place at the Eagles Square pavilion.

The PDP caretaker committee chairman said there is so much hunger under the President Muhammadu Buhari government because unlike the PDP which is local, the APC is an alliance of people with conflicting and selfish interests.

The question is, as we race to 2019 and Nigeria's defining election, will the electorate come out en masse to vote someone out or in?

Former President Goodluck Jonathan had said God believes in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Godswill Akpabio, has assured Nigerians that the party will not support any separatist agenda in the country.

According to Makarfi, "In politics there are always issues but what is important is that we sit down and resolve the issues in a civil manner".

"I was told that some people were insinuating that if PDP stayed in power, our economy would have stumbled".

"What a lovely day this is, what a handsome moment this is for democracy in Africa".

"We have gone through a lot and we intend to do a lot for Nigerians".

"I am impressed with the renewed enthusiasm and commitment of our members towards rebuilding the party after the protracted leadership tussle", Mark said. They can now compare and contrast.

Those who left the party should return home. There must be integrity and discipline in our democratic system at all levels of party governance, and we must put to fore those things that add value to the growth of our party.

"We are ready to present ourselves to Nigerians in 2019".
