A legal luminary who also doubles as an All Progressives Congress (APC), chieftain in Plateau Southern Senatorial district Hon Ado Ali has said, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) judgment that declared Sen. Ahmed Makarfi as the party’s authentic chairman would not pose any threat to the APC in 2019 considering the Supreme Court’s judgement which brought an end to the party’s leadership tussle.
Hon Ali stated this on Thursday while reacting to the Supreme Court judgment between Sen. Ahmed Makarfi and Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff on Wednesday.
He advised Barr. Simon Lalong to consider those that are credible in his forthcoming appointment to be people who are grassroots oriented as management Committee Chairman to head the various local Government councils.
He added that people are competent, people that have political clout, people who socialize and integrate with politicians at the wards and local and state level.
According to him, Lalong should make selection of People whose relationship transcends religious and not those that promote ethnic extraction by building differences of boundaries.
The Governor must not allow himself to be misled by mischief makers, “we need people that are generous and accessible to all and sundry whose popularity transcends their immediate local Government areas, he added.
Barr. Ali explained further that, this caretaker committee chairmen should be people that have integrity and can project the image of the Governor Lalong, as he added that Lalong does not need people that will be appointed and they keep running away from the electorates.
“We appealed to the governor to appoint people based on competence not zoning , zoning cannot get us the right people to help him deliver on his electioneering campaign which is my honest advice “, Barr.Ali noted .
He said although the Supreme Court’s judgement affirmed Senator Ahmed Makarfi as National Chairman of the PDP, the ruling party would not in any way restore the image of the party before Nigerians.
The chietain also stated that neither: “Makarfi, Ali Modu Sheriff or any other person being the PDP chairman is no threat to Lalong ,what people should look at is the party as an institution”.
He condemned the institutionalization of corruption in the country and dilapidated infrastructure inherited from our democrats which is very sad.
