A presidential hopeful of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Ahmed Makarfi has described the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a party of “drowning men.”
Makarfi thus called on the PDP to use their “brains” and defeat the ruling party during the 2019 elections.
He said this recently when he submitted his Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms.
According to him, “If you give a drowning man a sword, he will hold on to it. We are dealing with drowning men and we should understand and see them as such.
“We must never lose focus to wrest power from the APC. They may use whatever they want to use, but let’s use our brains.
“I will begin by sympathizing with PDP men and women on the attack on democracy yesterday when we were assaulted by the APC thugs.”
He added that “This has never happened before, for a party to leave its domain to another party’s headquarters and do what they did.
“But no matter how they try, they will not succeed. Intimidation will not work because we know the APC is left with no option other than intimidation. When you are losing, whatever you see, you grab.”
