By 2015, PDP Would Be No Match For APC, Says Al-Makura

Al-MakuraThe Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) should prepare to play the role of opposition in 2015 as the All Progressives Congress (APC), will wrest power from it, the Nasarawa state governor, Umar Tanko Al-Makura has said.

The governor, in a recent interview, lampooned the PDP for what he described as decay and neglect of the country, saying the party had destroyed everything good it met on ground.

“By the time we conclude all arrangements on 2015, the PDP would be no match for APC. What makes us confident about the clout to take over the presidential power in 2015 is the realisation sweeping through Nigeria today that the PDP has failed the nation. The PDP which has been in power since 1999 has stopped working. Worst still, what the PDP inherited in the country when it took over government has disappeared, while many of such legacies had been destroyed completely,” Al-Makura said.

The governor also shed light on the recent killing of over 50 security agents in the state by Ombatse cult members in Alakyo village saying some politicians who were desperate to take reclaim power in 2015, have been fingered in the attack.

He said: “Already, a Judicial Commission of Inquiry which was set up to probe the killings had commenced activities. Once the committee gets through with its work, Nigeria and indeed the whole world will know the people behind the criminality and our administration would ensure that all of them are brought to book.”
