Ahmed Makarfi, caretaker committee chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says Nigeria has “suffered enough” under the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The PDP chairman said this in Ede, Osun state, during the presentation of N250 million scholarship to 66 indigent undergraduates.
He advised the people to “come and stay under the umbrella because the broom is no longer sweeping well”.
The scholarship scheme was sponsored by Ademola Adeleke, senator representing Osun west. The lawmaker said said it was done in memory of Isiaka, his late brother.
Ademola replaced Isiaka at the national assembly.
Makarfi said having learnt its lesson, the PDP would keep all electoral promises to Nigerians if given another chance in 2019.
He urged those who had left the party to return.
“Nigeria has suffered enough; the broom is no longer sweeping well. Come and stay under the umbrella,” Makarfi said.
“In PDP, it is going to be promises made, promises kept. We are going to have a full-time governor in PDP.
“No doubt, we have our problems, we have made efforts to correct it, we are not like the government that doesn’t take to corrections or listen at all.
“We apologise to those the party has offended and we call on those that have not joined to come and join.”
