Members of the defunct ‘FCT Campaign Group For Goodluck Jonathan 2015 Presidential Election’, have declared that the chances of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) winning the coming presidential election in the country is very bright.
In an interview with LEADERSHIP in Abuja yesterday, leader of the group, Alhaji Abubakar Sidi, stated that members believe that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has not performed to the expectations of most Nigerians.
Sidi maintained that PDP has 99 per cent of wining the forthcoming presidential election, because most people who voted for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 are regretting it, because what they expected is not what they are seeing today.
He pointed out that before President Buhari took over power in 2015, a litre of fuel was sold at N85, but today it is selling at the official rate is N145.00, while a litre of diesel which was sold at N115.00, is selling today at N210.00, just as a bag of rice, sold then at N7, 000, is today selling at N18, 000 to N20, 000, even as the cost of going to Mecca was N700, 000, but now it is N1.6m.
Sidi reiterated the call by the group for Senator Ahmed Makarfi to declare his presidential ambition, because of his past records, not only as a former caretaker committee chairman of the party, but also as a former commissioner and governor of Kaduna State and a former senator.
He continued: “Before Makarfi became the governor, Kaduna State was on fire, but he was able to neutralize the problem and brought peace to the people of the state, irrespective tribe and religious dimensions.
He also brought progress and development to the state. When he completed his tenure as state governor, he went to the senate and became the chairman, senate finance committee for eight years.
Before he became acting chairman of the PDP, the party was in very serious crisis, some members even lost hope in the party, but with him, the party has put that behind, as he has brought the party back on its feet, stabilised it, brought unity and sanity to the party.
This is why we are calling on him to come out and lead Nigeria in this troubled time out of the woods.”
