Makarfi: Voting LP Or NNPP Strengthens Chances Of PDP, APC
Ahmed Markarfi

Former governor of Kaduna, Ahmed Markarfi has stated that voting Peter Obi’s Labour party (LP) or Rabiu Kwankwaso’s New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) will only strengthen the PDP and the APC.

He stated that Obi and Kwankwaso should come back to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in order to aid the party’s effort to defeat the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 presidential election.

He stated this while speaking on Sunrise Daily, a Channels Television programme, on Tuesday.

Makarfi stated that Nigeria youths should not make decision based anger and frustration.

“This contest is between APC and PDP, so let people get this clear. I know there are a lot of sentiments out of frustration, maybe, but the clear choice for Nigerians is you either vote for PDP or you vote for APC,” he said.

“If you vote for any other party, you’ll only increase the strength of either of the two parties depending on where the vote come from.

“For the youths, when you’re angry you may even take a decision that may worsen your situation. If you are angry and frustrated, talk to people that can listen to you and address your issue.

“But if you go to take an option which will make the status quo remain what is the use of your frustration and anger? That is why I’m calling for a reason.

“I call for other opposition parties to actually come together. In any case, especially Peter Obi, I know he respects our presidential candidate a lot, he respects a many of us.

“PDP will be home to him and his supporters and indeed Kwankwaso, we started PDP together, let us come back home to do the needful for the sake of the country.”
