2023 presidency: Makinde reveals very painful fact about PDP's fate
Some days back, Makinde admitted that it would be impossible for the party to win the 2023 presidential election and restructure Nigeria if it cannot bring about the same change within its ranks.
Governor Makinde make this submission on Friday, September 9, when he commissioned the Umuakatawom-Osaa-Okea-Ohuru road in Obingwa LGA of Abia state.
Makinde used the avenue to debunk claims that he has been appointed as the chairman of the PDP governors forum in place of Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto.
According to him, securing the chairmanship of the forum is not what he and some bigwigs of the party are fighting for, adding that he will turn down the offer if it is presented to him.
He argued that if since 1999, the PDP cannot make a decision that will lead to sustainable development in Nigeria, then another option should be tried.
