Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi has urged Nigerians to vote for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in next year’s general election.
In an interview with BBC Hausa, he said insecurity has deteriorated under the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
Makarfi, who governed Kaduna State, said when PDP was in power, only the Northeast experienced insecurity, but an election was still because of the measures taken by the Goodluck Jonathan-led administration.
He lamented that Nigerians are unable to go to farms, markets, or visit their relatives due to insecurity ravaging the country under the APC administration
“Imagine what is happening in North West same in North Central and South. In Nigeria, farming has become very difficult. The business has become difficult, visitation has become difficult, almost everything is difficult to do,” he said.

He assured that the PDP will provide solid leadership that will confront and address the problems if it wins the 2023 presidential election.
He explained further that the security challenge inherited by the ruling party from the PDP was the Boko Haram insurgency.
“What they inherited was Boko Haram insurgency in North East even though PDP was already tackling the situation, and that was why the election was held in North East. We didn’t say because of insecurity, we couldn’t hold an election, but now even in Kaduna State, there is a threat that there will be no political activities in some places not to talk of holding an election. This has never happened in the past.
“If you inherited something in NorthEast, you are to address it, but instead of addressing the situation, it has now deteriorated,” he said.
