I’ll restructure Nigeria, address insecurity if elected president — Makarfi
FORMER Governor of Kaduna State and 2019 Presidential aspirant on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, Tuesday, said he would restructure Nigeria and address the problem of the insecurity plaguing the country if elected President in 2019.
Speaking when he paid a consultative visit to PDP leadership and possible Delta State delegates to the National Convention in Asaba, Delta State, Makarfi said he would create an enabling environment for the country’s economy to thrive, adding that his administration would pay priority attention to education, tackle unemployment and poverty.
He said his commitment to restructuring was not political, insisting that “there must be a way to restructure the country and its agencies, including Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, such that political parties are represented in the commission. “As governor of Kaduna State, I was the architect of the first National Conference under former President Olusegun Obasanjo,” regretting that so many vital areas, which were classified as no go areas, were shut out.
