PDP will ensure Maku fails for the rest of his life – Ahmadu Ali

The Director-General of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential Campaign Council, Ahmadu Ali, on Tuesday said his party will make sure the former Information Minister, Labaran Maku, fails for the rest of his life for defecting to the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA,.

Mr. Ali said Mr. Maku is a “dangerous boy” who the PDP helped groom from nothing, adding that his defection will cause a reduction in the number of votes the PDP will garner in Nasarawa state.

The Director- General who stated this at the PDP presidential rally in Lafia, explained that the former minister benefited from the PDP-led Federal Government only to defect to another party.

“We have a young man who from nowhere was a Deputy Governor of this state for four years, from nowhere he was made a Minister at the federal level for six years, decided to leave the party for another party and keep telling lies that by being in that party, he is helping us.

“He is only going there to reduce our votes. He is a dangerous boy.

“We must make sure that now that he has shown his colour, he will continue failing for the rest of his life unless he retraces his steps back to the elders like us and we will forgive him.”

Mr. Ali then urged the electorate in the state to vote for President Goodluck Jonathan and other candidates of the party at both federal and state levels

In his remarks, the President also denied lending any form of support to Mr. Maku’s gubernatorial aspiration under the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA.

Mr. Jonathan said lending such a support to the former minister would amount to anti-party behaviour.

He, therefore, expressed his support for all the PDP candidates in the state in the February 14 and 28 general elections.

“We are told and everybody spoke about that the former Minister of Information that is in another party and saying that it is the President who asked him to go to another party. Definitely I cannot play anti-party.

“PDP is my party and all those who want to help us should come to PDP and work for PDP so that PDP will be in control of Nasarawa State so that government of PDP in Nasarawa State and the Federal Government that will be in the hands of PDP and work together to move Nasarawa State forward,” Mr. Jonathan said.

Also speaking , the President of the Senate, David Mark, urged Mr. Maku to desist from dropping the name of Mr. President in his quest to achieve his political ambition.

He advised him to apologise to the PDP ”if he is willing to return to the party”, saying that the PDP would wholeheartedly accept him into its fold.

“People of Nasarawa State, don’t be deceived by any ungrateful son of yours, who goes round saying he is in another political party because Mr. President has put him there.

“That is absolute lie, you must never believe it. We said so few days ago and we are emphasising it again.

“And we want to emphasise it; (the) President is body and soul PDP.

“He can’t, therefore, put somebody in another political party to be campaigning on behalf of another political party.

“How can you be in APGA and be campaigning for the PDP presidential candidate?

“Return to PDP with apology because before we even take him he has to apologise to all the good people in PDP.’’

    Words of the day:

    “We must make sure that now that he has shown his colour, he will continue failing for the rest of his life unless he retraces his steps back to the elders like us and we will forgive him.”

    Could there be any other sign indicative of and attesting to a gloomy end of a once known party that’s “destined” to rule this country for 50 years. Something serious, more than the comprehension of the handlers of the “biggest political party in Africa”, is really rumbling and numbing the party right from the foundation of its existence. Is this going to be the end of a dynasty that had hoped living for more decades?.

  • alimi

    Ali, how can you be cursing Maku that way. I was reliably told that you cursed your son and that was why he went to forge documents for fuel he did not supply. JoNothing is going and you should be ready face judgement.. You better stop all the nonsense, agbaya.

  • Ananas_yolawa.

    GEJ talk say he no go do anti-party at all. Uya, let me remained you, what happened in last election of Anambra state. You make sure that PDPig lost to APGA, because you want Igbo to support you in 2015.
    GEJ you are an Hypocrite!

  • James

    I thought APGA endorsed GEJ as their presidential candidate! I’m really confuse, is it that IGBO could not fill their own? It’s a lesson for all the igbos next time we should look after our own interese first!


      well said. I cannot see a collective reason for APGA endorsing gej it is definitely cos of personal interest.

  • Remi

    How can PDP that is in the funeral parlor be threatening anybody? Please see me see trouble o have you ever seen where dead people threaten men who are alive? I think it’s time to do funeral mass for them to calm them down.

  • Adams Numaka

    It serves maku fine. When these pdp hawk were pushing him, he abandoned his leftist philosophy of then and insulting all his seniors in all ramification of life. He saw pdp as maku and ego his tribe. Evil that men do live with them and labaran maku is a classical case study. On the so called Pdp leaders, Mark is one person that even spirits may find it difficult to explain his metaphor. A core sponsor of june 12 that never like civil rule becoming a beneficiary of a system he so hate. Why won’t he open his mouth and talk as an emperor? Amodu alih, cursing Labaran az if Labaran is his son is curse misdirected. By the grace of God, they will all be disgraced because, if pdpig party primaries in Nassarawa were to free and fair, Maku would have stayed on.

  • pastorakinleye

    The deathwatch has begun for the party that has bequeathed death and poverty to Nigeria for 16 years. Nigerians are watching the agony of its tormentor with relish while the PDP’s own Abdicator-in-Chief runs from Church to Shrine seeking endorsement.

  • Mojeed Ayodele

    Ahmadu Ali, Olopa e wo ni tepe? Haha can you course your own child like that?

  • Gaskiya

    PDP is dead. In every states, their houses are on fire. And the rascals want Nigerians to vote for them. Shegun banza. Yan Iska. Allah Ya debe muku albarka. Ya kaskantardaku next two weeks. Kuma Ya sako maku bala o in da zasu halaka ku gaba dayanku. Ameen

    • Worried Mother

      Amin Ya Rabbi.

  • SMK

    i’m confused here, PDP does not accept support from APGA and rejects Maku’s presidential support while APGA in the SE are supporting GEJ and they welcome their support. whats happening?

    • Rommel

      OBJ once accused president Jonathan of being a pathological liar,I am sure that Maku is dazed right now wherever he is having just seen that OBJ was right

  • Lemmuel Odjay

    Ahmadu Ali, Ahmadu Ali… Are you now also playing God over the life of human beings? I must commend you for your staying power. Your name is intertwined in the fabrics of governance in Nigeria for 40-something years now. Congratulations for your political longevity. Wow! But one thing comes out clear during these many years of your involvement in governance both as a military dictator and now as a civilian. Nigerians have got poorer and hopeless with each passing day that marked your tenure. I understand that you and a few other like-minded Nigerians made up the founding fathers of the PDP list. Reminds one of those economically torrid days of Alhaji Shehu Sagari’s NPN. I would love to ask a question of you. I know you’re perched up there at the top of the PDP ladder and should be privy to privileged information as a result. My question to you is: when are all the promises of a better life for Nigerians made during the past 40 years or so going to be fulfilled? We are hungry, can’t you see?

    Nearly two years ago, I was commuting by road between Makurdi of Benue State to Abuja. About 60 kilometers to Abuja, I pulled by a motor accident scene in which three vehicles had been involved. The body of a dead passenger was being pulled out of one of the vehicles. There were about four people who had sustained various degrees of injuries. From information gathered on the spot, the bereaved family of five were travelling from Oturkpo to Abuja to catch a Lagos-bound flight at the airport. I then asked one of them, why Abuja Airport instead of Makurdi Airport? I was told that the airport at Makurdi had been rested and was no longer in use. They wondered why you could have left them to suffer such fate when you had the wherewithal to put in a word for the Airport to be reopened. You are the senate president, and I am aware that it is possible to save lives by using your office to influence the arm of government responsible, and make them reopen the Makurdi Airport. Why should people be driving four hours or more by road to catch a flight that would take less than an hour to reach their destination? Please do something now about the Makurdi Airport which is situated in your state capital.

  • zero

    You cheated yourself from the beginning by associating and adapting to a party that is no good at all.

  • Bidemi Lukman

    Not only Maku is dangerous, all in GEJ gov are dangerous including Ali himself.

    • Ebele Factory Child

      Even GEJ is dangerous to his government

  • Hah!

    … But APGA and Labour Party have a lot in common with PDP. The have also endorsed President GEJ for re-election. why this abuse on Maku?

  • Rommel

    OBJ was right about president Jonathan that he is an unrepentant liar as Maku is finding out.APGA is an appendage of the PDP and so for Maku to choose APGA against any other party,Jonathan asked him to do it just like OBJ had agreements with then PPA governors from IMO and Abia states who later defected to PDP.

  • Eze1

    Maku has finally been dumped

  • ICC Hague

    People use and dumb party are in crises in all the states God has already curse them for suffering Nigerians for 16 years, even their chairman Adamu mu Azu has confessed that PDP is full of injustice, they are not fair to themselves talkless of being fair to Nigerians. APC buhari all the way.

  • True Nigerian

    Oga Maku, ngwanu! You once praised Jonathan for “bringing Facebook to Nigeria”. Hahahahahahaha! Clownish Maku of a Comical PDP.

  • Wakawa Aliyu

    so far so gooood….

  • Lekan

    This is good for maku because when is mouth will be dancing like Eye Orofo when he was with pdpig, he didn’t realise this kind of downfall will come. Go on, it remains fani kayoed, fayose and co. that this kind of disgrace will befall.


    What a naked display of arrogance by Ali.

  • blueeyedkitten

    “How can you be in APGA and be campaigning for the PDP presidential candidate? didn’t the national arm of APGA declared their support for GEJ? or what was willy obiano doing in the campaign train of GEJ? what about peter obi?
