The ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC), has expressed satisfaction with the admittance by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that it made mistakes during its 16-year reign as the ruling party in Nigeria.
As reported by Naija News, the PDP through its National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, yesterday, apologised to Nigerians for failing them in the 16 years they were in power.
In its reaction, through its National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi, the APC submitted that though the apology is a welcome development, the PDP has not shown enough remorse for Nigerians to forgive them, adding that PDP was only trying to deceive Nigerians so as to reclaim power.
Abdullahi said in a statement, “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.
“It is good that they have finally accepted but now that they are willing to atone for their sins, they must have to spend sufficient time in the trajectory to show that they are truly repentant.
“Again, they have to wait for Nigerians to forgive them before they can even begin to dream of coming back to power.
“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.”
