Just a few months ago, Labaran Maku was the minister of information and the beloved PDP partyman who rallied for the party’s cause. Now things have changed.
Maku failed in his ambition to become the Nasarawa PDP governorship candidate and has since moved to APGA where he is the party’s flagbearer.
On Monday, he was described by his former party, the PDP, as a destroyer and an ingrate.
The party’s National Vice Chairman (North Central), Alhaji Yussuf Ayitogu, who was in Niger state for a reconciliatory visit to PDP members who lost the primary elections in Niger State accused Maku of trying to destroy the party and it’s chances in Nasarawa following his defection.
“Maku is a destroyer who wants to reduce the votes of the PDP in Nasarawa State. He is biting the finger that fed him. PDP made him what he is today, rising from commissioner to deputy governor and lately a minister.
“It is unfortunate that he (Maku) has defected to APGA which is nowhere in Nassarawa State.
“People who served under President Goodluck Jonathan are the ones betraying him. They should be called to order. Labaran Maku cannot win any election in Nassarawa State. He will be shown this in the February election,” Ayitogu said.
