The PDP campaigned in Nasarawa on Tuesday and top party leaders took turns blasting a former minister of information, Labaran Maku, who recently dumped the PDP for APGA.
Maku had claimed that he moved to APGA based on the advise of Pres. Jonathan.
But at the rally,Jonathan described Maku’s action as anti-party, Senate president Mark said the former minister was a liar while campaign DG Ahmadu Ali described him as an ingrate.
Accusing Maku of plotting to smear Jonathan’s image and portray him as a religious bigot, Ali said having used the PDP’s platform to rise to stardom, the former information minister, out of greed, jumped the ship to team up with the APGA.
According to Ali, Maku’s ambition will never come into fruition because he lacks the needed integrity to realise such.
The president also publicly disowned Maku, clarifying that at no time did he encourage him to defect from the PDP to another party.
Jonathan explained that the PDP was against anti-party activities, saying as the leader of the party, he would never flout its rules and regulations.
In the same vein, Senate President Senator David Mark said Maku was a liar for claiming that he was planted in the APGA to run for governorship.
The Senate president urged the APGA gubernatorial flag bearer to apologise and retrace his steps.
“Don’t be deceived by any son of yours that says he has been put in another party to run for the governorship. Mr. President is PDP from top to bottom”, Mark said.
