2023: Frustrated youths behind Peter Obi — Former PDP chair1 min read
A former Governor of Kaduna State, Ahmed Makarfi, has called youths supporting Labour Party’s Presidential Candidate Peter Obi ‘frustrated youths’.
Makarfi, a former PDP chairman, was a guest on Channels Television’s breakfast show, Sunrise Daily, where he made the remark.
Makarfi urged Peter Obi; and his New Nigeria Peoples Party’s counterpart, Rabiu Kwankwaso to swallow their personal ambition and return to the Peoples Democratic Party just as the Senator representing Kano Central, Ibrahim Shekarau, left the New Nigeria Peoples Party and rejoined the Peoples Democratic Party.
According to the 66-year-old statesman, there are only two parties in Nigeria – the PDP and the All Progressives Congress.
He also said frustrated youths are using Obi, a former Anambra State governor, as a symbol, adding that youths should not make decisions on the presidential candidate to vote for in anger. Obi had left the PDP in May and emerged as the Labour Party’s presidential candidate.
