Former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of not prepared for governance.

He disclosed the position yesterday in an interview in Kaduna.

According to him, the feud between the party’s National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun and its leader, Bola Tinubu, is a confirmation of the party’s failure.

He said the crisis in the party and the attendant poor performance in governance, are signs that it is not ready to rule in 2019.

He declared that whoever the APC presents as its presidential candidate in 2019, including President Muhammadu Buhari, would not match the PDP during the election.

Makarfi cited the letters by former President Olusegun Obasanjo and General Ibrahim Babangida as proof of the APC’s failure.

He said: “The PDP’s position before the letters by our former leaders had been that the APC government is not doing well, and it is high time that Nigerians vote them out of office at different levels.”

Makarfi also expressed concern about some burning national issues, including the herdsmen’s killings and the
corruption rating by Transparency International (TI) against Nigeria.

Without minding Buhari’s real motive of seeking power, he said: “There was a lot of propaganda which propelled the APC into power.

“There was lack of preparation and division in the government from day one. This division has continued to widen, as you could see in the current efforts of reconciliation by Asiwaju Tinubu.
