Ahmed Makarfi, a presidential aspirant for the 2019 general elections on the platform of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, on Friday cautioned the party against accepting all defectors into the party.
Speaking in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital, Makarfi, a former caretaker chairman of the PDP and also a former governor of Kaduna State, said several of the defectors had left when the party experienced difficulties and are now returning because they could not fulfil their political ambitions with other parties.
He warned that the returnees should not be entrusted with too much responsibility so as not to make previous mistakes that bedevilled the party.
Makarfi said, “We must be careful whom we admit back into the party so as not to repeat the mistake of the past.”
also warned those clamouring for restructuring to be careful so as not to hand over the responsibility of restructuring to those who should not be trusted with power.
