The All Progressives Congress, APC has been called upon to apologise to the people of Edo State over its varying position on the person of Governor Godwin Obaseki.
Immediate past chairman of the party, Chief Dan Orbih in a statement upbraided the ruling party for deliberately playing politics on the issue of the governor’s qualification saying that it took various positions to please the national leadership.
“The APC owes it as a moral obligation to apologise to the people Edo State for deceiving the people on the issue of the governor’s certificate.
“At one time the governor was very much well qualified to govern the state and was praised for being a financial expert. Now the party has changed position essentially because of the problems the governor has with the National Chairman.
“For me, the fact is that the people of Edo State have not only been deceived, but they have also been made to bear the brunt of the deficiency in governance on account of the distractions that the governor has been subjected to through the dispute with the national chairman.
“The party as such owes it a moral duty to apologise to the people of Edo State before it can be taken as serious in any competitive bid for the votes of the electorate.” We are sick and tired of APC serial certificate scandals.
