Former national caretaker chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Ahmed Makarfi says if he wins the party’s 2019 presidential ticket, he will defeat the incumbent president, Muhammadu Buhari.
Makarfi, who recently indicated his interest in the 2019 presidential election, said the PDP will effectively tackle insecurity and would not politicise security matters if allowed to return to Aso Villa.
Makarfi, a former governor of Kaduna State, stated this Wednesday in Jos, at the Plateau State PDP secretariat.
He said he was in the state to formally solicit the support of Plateau PDP delegates.
Makarfi, while enumerating his plans for the nation, if elected, said his administration will have the listening ears of traditional, community and religious leaders.
He lamented increasing cases of kidnapping, armed robbery and other violent crimes.
The PDP chairman in the state, Damishi Sango, assured Makarfi of total support from Plateau delegates.
