Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Caretaker Committee Chairman, Ahmed Makarfi, has set up a committee to fashion out a plan to remove the ruling party, APC from power come 2019.
While inaugurating the committee led by Prof. Jerry Gana, a former Minister of Information, Makarfi disclosed that the committee would discuss with others both members and non-members of the PDP on how to remove APC from power in 2019.
Makarfi, during the event, alleged that Ali Modu Sheriff, who still insists he is the national chairman of the party, is doing everything possible to make Nigeria a one party state.

“We as caretaker committee of the PDP we have absolute faith and confidence in the judiciary and we know that ultimately justice will be done, the judges cannot be fooled by these antics. We equally believe that as democrats in PDP we will continue to depend on the judiciary as the institution that can protect its own integrity and I believe that they are capable of doing that,” he said.
Makarfi who stated this when he spoke with newsmen in Kaduna State on Saturday said Sheriff’s first strategy was to discredit the judiciary and then ensure that nothing hinders Nigeria from becoming a one party state.
According to him, Sheriff is already at work as he deliberately raised insinuations that were possible of affecting the judgement pending before the Appeal Court in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.
