75th National Executive Committee Meeting a great Success – PDP
"As a party we will continue to work hard not to lose anybody, but will work much harder to bring in more members to the party", he said. God will keep him alive till 2019 so he would witness his removal from power because Nigerians are already exhausted of this change.
"It is time for self examination for all of us and to return to what is right bearing in mind our mistakes in the past".
"Even if I will be the last man standing in the PDP, I will remain in PDP".
"As a human institution, we can not claim to be flawless and as a political party, our accomplishments up to 2015 are clear for every Nigerian to see, " he said.
I must not also forget all the Nigerians who are desirous for the PDP to get its act together and play the role of a strong and vibrant opposition, which is critical for sustainable democracy in the country.
"I am impressed by the renewed enthusiasm and commitment of members towards rebuilding the party after the protracted leadership tussle", he said.
Makarfi made this known at the opening ceremony of the 75th PDP National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party held at the party national Secretariat on Friday, August 11, 2017 in Abuja. "We cannot afford to make another mistake that could affect the fortunes of the party in the days ahead", he added. Internal democracy took a backstage, aggrieved party members were disregarded and impunity became the order of the day at various leadership levels in the party. Without a viable democracy, there is no way you can have good governance.
"In the same vein, the YouWin programme empowered a crop of young Nigerians to go into entrepreneurship and in turn employed others, " he said.
"If we did not achieve anything, I want to tell you that we have achieved experience".
"The only way the black race can have respect is for Nigeria to have a stable democracy and the only thing that shows democracy is the legislature". Who can you say we don't have here? It's time, brothers and sisters, to come back home!
He said some of the achievements of the party include the YouWin entrepreneurship programme, agricultural innovations, general economic management and policies aimed at fighting corruption.
"We are ready to present ourselves to Nigerians in 2019".
