Al-Makura made the statement on Tuesday, June 26, when dismissing fears that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will lose the coming 2019 poll.
“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is in comatose even though the heart is still beating, but before 2019 there will be no PDP in the Nasarawan State," he said.
“My plan initially was that we will convert the PDP state secretariat to APC state office because PDP is finished, but I thought otherwise that how can we occupy such a desecrated, polluted temple as APC office.”
