The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, on Monday apologised to Nigerians on behalf of the party, saying the PDP is sorry for the “mistakes” it made while governing the country.
Uche Secondus, national chairman of the party, who tendered the apology at an event in Abuja on Monday, also had part of his speech tweeted.
He said: As the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, we admit that we have made some mistakes and we want to apologize for our past mistakes.
“We have learnt from our mistakes and we say “sorry” to all Nigerians that has entrusted so much to us.
“We have been through an evolution process that will reposition our party. We say No Imposition, No Impunity and Yes to the rule of Law”
Secondus was speaking at the launching a new PDP agenda, #RescueNigeria
The PDP, through Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, Umaru Musa Yar’adua and Goodluck Jonathan, led the country at the Federal level from 1999 to 2015 when it lost power to the All Progressives Congress led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to Secondus, “It has quickly become apparent that propaganda of the lies of the APC can’t deliver the dividends of democracy. It is on the PDP to deliver this nation from doomsday
He also said: The three point agenda of the APC is corruption, security and revamping the economy has been a shadow of itself.
“On corruption, the APC has failed woefully by failing to prosecute her own officials indicted for corruption. From Babachir Lawal, Barru to Maina. All they do is media persecution of opposition leaders”.
