“Even if Nigerians are gracious enough to forgive, they will not forget in a hurry,” APC spokesman told PDP.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) says Nigerians may forgive the sixteen-year misrule of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) but may not forget easily.
APC spokesman, Bolaji Abdullahi said this in a statement made available to Pulse on Tuesday, March 27, 2018.
The PDP national chairman, Uche Secondus had apologized to Nigerians for the mistakes of the party leading to its defeat during the 2015 general elections.
“The All Progressives Congress (APC) acknowledges the apologies by the Peoples Democracy Party (PDP) for the damage the party has wrought on the country's democratic fabric during its sixteen-year rule,” he said.
“However, despite this belated grovelling apology, PDP will need to come clean, confess to their sins and fully atone for it, before restitution is considered.
“As they say, to err is human but forgiveness is divine. We join PDP in praying to God to forgive them, but Nigerians are human who are still suffering from the years of PDP's misrule.
“Even if Nigerians are gracious enough to forgive, they will not forget in a hurry,” Abdullahi added.
Similarly, the minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed has asked the PDP to return all funds ‘looted’ during its sixteen-year rule.
