National chairman of the National Caretaker Committee (NCC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sen Ahmed Makarfi, yesterday derided the All Progressives Congress (APC) for failing to hold meetings because they are afraid of implosion.
Makarfi stated this while hosting a delegation of former speakers of the house of Assembly in Abuja.
The PDP chairman who lampooned the APC of being afraid of holding meetings because of defections, boasted that the PDP held meetings during the leadership crisis.
He added that immediately after the Supreme Court judgement, PDP held three majors meetings without fears of implosion.
Makarfi said “Even with our crisis we were never afraid to hold meetings. Within two days we held three meetings; expanded caucus meeting, caucus meetings, Board of Trustees (BoT) and National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting.
“It was like a market place. People came from everywhere but we didn’t fears. Nobody had to fear.
“The party in government wanted to copy us. They held a meeting with the Vice President. They came out and some governors threatened to leave the party.
“This was the first meeting they were having in two years and some governors threatened to leave.”
He, however, assured that PDP will give credible and constructive opposition to the APC devoid of hate speech.
“We will give credible opposition But we won’t make hate speeches.”We will talk in a language that will show that we are mature politicians.”
He noted that the Supreme Court judgment over the recent leadership crisis in the party stabilised the polity.
The House in a committee of the whole adopted and approved the recommendation of the committee.
