The caretaker committee chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Ahmad Makarfi, had Tuesday called on former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, to continue to contribute to the reinvention, remodelling of the party so that come 2019, the PDP can reclaim what is hers, asking Atiku also to help the party develop a winning strategy that would enable it to win the presidential election in 2019.
Makarfi reasoned that Atiku’s defection to the PDP before the national convention slated for Saturday in Abuja was an indication that he was ready to contribute to the success of the party.
According to him, “We are not just targeting Aso Rock, we are targeting the federal legislature, the states, both the executive and the legislature. We are targeting the local governments.
“We want to sweep elections all across the country. As a united party, we have the capacity and we have the ability to do so”, he said.
The caretaker chairman added, “we will continue to consult you. You will also help us reinvent the vehicle that will take us to Aso Rock in 2019.
