Ahmed Makarfi, Chairman of the caretaker committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has assured Nigerians that the party will defeat the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019.
 
He said a starting point to returning to Aso Rock in 2019, was to ensure that its elective convention scheduled for December was transparent and fair.
 
Makarfi said after that, the PDP must come out of that convention strong and united, expressing confidence that this will spoil the party for APC in the next general polls.
 
He spoke when he received a delegation of former National Working Committee of the party on Tuesday in Abuja.
 
His words: “When we were in the Supreme Court, we were in the `intensive care unit’.

“When they bring you out of the unit, they put you under observation before they take you to a general ward.

“So now, we are in a general observation, that is the convention, and after that, the nomination processes for the elections will be the final.

“If we get all these processes right, there is no reason why the PDP will not be in power at the centre in 2019.

“Together, I am confident we will get there. The fact that we stumbled here and there does not mean we don’t have the capacity to rise again.

“Power is transient, it is like sleep, you wake up and it is no longer there.
 
“When you are in a position, be guided by a sense of fairness, justice and equity and you will be able to sleep well.

“You can’t satisfy everybody but if you are convinced and it is obvious that you gave your best, I tell you, you’ll remain standing and strong.

“That is what leadership at all levels is all about, whether it is political party leadership, legislative or executive.

“We should remember that one day, it can be us and at other times, it can be other people. Respect is reciprocal and it flows.”

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage. Atten-ding seminars and reading books on marriage are good, I told her; but where you can know and be pr-oud of living confidently in marriage is when you enter into the reality of marriage. This is w…
