Former Governor of Kaduna State, Ahmed Makarfi, has said it will be hard for a divided opposition to wrestle power from All Progressives Congress.
Makarfi said PDP stood a better chance of winning the presidential election if presidential candidates of Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, and his New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, counterpart, Rabiu Kwankwaso returned to its fold.
Speaking on Channels Television’s breakfast show, Sunrise Daily, on Tuesday, Makarfi said Obi and Kwankwaso should shelve their personal ambitions and return to the PDP.
Makarfi urged aggrieved PDP members to unite and discuss their differences in the country’s interest.
He noted that Obi and Kwankwaso will only cost the PDP votes in areas known to be its stronghold.
According to Makarfi: “Peter Obi respects me; I respect him. Kwankwaso still is my friend, I respect him, but the issue is that we should all swallow personal ambition for the sake of this country and bring positive change by changing the government that is in power today.
“I call on other opposition parties to actually come together, especially Peter Obi.
“PDP will be home to him, PDP will be home to his supporters, and Kwankwaso, we all started PDP together; let us come back home and do the needful for the sake of this country.”
