Nasarawa state governor Tanko Al-Makura ruled as impossible any attempts to return to the People’s Democratic Party, which he left for Congress for Progressive Change in 2010.
“PDP is history, as far I am concerned,” he said in an exclusive interview Thursday with Daily Trust.
Refuting reports of him being courted to return to the PDP, he said thoughts about his returning to PDP were “imagination,” adding, “I will be the last person to go to PDP.
In a roundabout statement of conditions of his return, he said: “Even if I have to be the last person, before I will go, the sun will rise from the west and set in the east, which is an impossibility.”
He described the years he spent in PDP as those of an “ardent member” and called himself one of those who “made the party what it is” in Nasarawa.
“But I have been ostracised by the party and been treated unfairly without taking into consideration some of the rights and privileges that I deserve, and even adherence to democratic culture.
“As far as I am concerned, I bid them farewell since the end of 2010 when I joined CPC.”
Explaining his past with PDP as history, he said he found himself “in the right place with CPC, because my philosophy, my ideals, my way of life are in tandem with the philosophy of CPC
