There would have been chaos if the Supreme Court verdict had gone the other way, the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Caretaker Committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has said.
According to a statement signed by the Publicity Secretary, Guild of Online Journalists, Jacob Onjewu Dickson, Makarfi said this in Kaduna on Sunday when he hosted the Guild of Online Journalists at his residence.
He said: “The court verdict is a victory for democracy.
“In a way, it has brought stability to the political terrain.
“If a contrary verdict was pronounced, it would have resulted to chaos.
“And with other chaotic situations in the country, it would have been bad.”
The PDP Chairman explained that though there was genuine plans to reconcile all the party faithful, only those willing to embrace same can be reconciled with.
Makarfi said though from the judgment, there is no victor, no vanquished as the caretaker committee would carry along all members of the party.
“We will provide a level playing field for everyone, that it how we can return the party to back to power at the centre,” he said.
Makarfi, who was a two-term Governor of Kaduna State, congratulated Nigerians for the victory, promising that the party will carry on with its people-oriented policies that will reach all sectors of the society.
He promised to partner the Guild in publicizing the party’s activities.
Earlier, the Chairman of the Guild of Online Journalists, Amos Mathew, said they came visiting Makarfi to felicitate with him and assure him of coverage of activities of the party.
Mathew said: “We are a non partisan group of professional journalists that have spread across the country.
“The advantage we have is that our publications are read in all nooks and crannies, where conventional newspapers do not reach.
“We are also proud to say we attract readers from all over the world through our stories, which are developmental and aimed at educating.”
