What I Will do If I Become President – Makarfi

Ahmed Makarfi, former National Caretaker Committee Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has revealed what he plans to do if he becomes President in 2019.

He told Punch: “I don’t want to politicise the issue but it is something that we cannot run away from. In the PDP, we regard it as one of the most important things that we have to fix.

“If I am lucky to be elected by Nigerians, I would make sure that we immediately discuss the nature and timeframe for restructuring.

“Restructuring is institutional. For a long time, the institutions of state, such as security, have been designed to serve those in power and not the citizens. We must remove them from economic domination.

“What new thing is the current government offering? The only new thing is that we are going backward; they are not even building on the gains of the past. I am sure that many Nigerians would prefer yesterday to today in terms of the government in power.

“In school, if a student is asked to repeat a class, such student would learn and try not to repeat the mistakes of the past. We know where we erred and we have learnt our lessons.

“Now, we are dealing with people who don’t even agree that they are making mistakes. Thus, the issue of them learning and getting better is not there.”
