Makarfi said this in Ede, Osun state on Wednesday at the award of scholarship to indigent students from Osun West Senatorial District by Senator Ademola Adeleke as part of his election promises.
” What we have now is a government and a party of denial. Anything you say even when they know is the truth, they will still find excuses, they will never accept that they erred. When you don’t accept that you erred, there is no way will correct the mistakes for the benefit of the people. In PDP, we err and we accept it.
“Nigeria has suffered enough and God will emancipate Nigerians by returning the PDP to power both at the Federal and at the state levels.”
He said, ” This is the greatest challenge, that all well meaning members of the PDP in the state, should saddle themselves with by closing ranks with a view to presenting a credible and sellable candidate that will effortlessly win the governorship election and take over the Bola Ige House, Abere.
“Let us, as a party avoid rancour, mudslinging, pull him down syndrome and other vices, that may endanger, God forbid, our chances of winning the 2018 governorship election.”
Adeleke appealed to PDP leaders who were yet to sheath their swords to do so and work for the party to win the poll and bring succor to the people of Osun State
Promising to continue to put smiles on the faces of the people of his constituency and the state at large, Adeleke said the the scholarship award was part of the promises he made during his electioneering campaign.
He recalled that the scholarship award was an initiative of his late brother, Alhaji Isiaka Adeleke during his life time.
Adeleke further explained that late Adeleke had started the scholarship since 1996, promising to continue the programme.
He therefore urged the beneficiaries to make judicious use of the opportunity given to them by always facing their studies.
