In his speech recently at an event in Abuja, the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, said that the party was sorry for the “mistakes” it made while governing the country.
“We made mistakes. On behalf of my colleagues and members of these party, I apologise to Nigerians. We have learnt from our mistakes. It was all part of our evolution process. Without it, there can be no maturity. I believe that PDP is more matured, to provide the best for this country.”
In its response to the apology, the APC said;
it was good that PDP has admitted putting the country in a mess. The party’s national publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi, said the only way to prove to Nigerians that they have truly repented from their sins is to stay out of power for a long time.He said: “Our response to this (apology) is that since PDP has realised and accepted that they are sinners and that their crimes of the years brought Nigeria to this sordid state we found ourselves today, we are glad with the admittance.
“All these desperate campaign from PDP did not show that they have truly repented. If they really want Nigerians to forgive them, they have to be remorseful and demonstrate that they are sober.
“They have to show that remorse by staying away from power because as it is now, we cannot even trust them with power since they have not shown much sincerity. They have not shown enough remorse for Nigerians to consider forgiving them.”
