The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it regrets presenting former president, Goodluck Jonathan, as its sole candidate in the 2015 election. Addressing journalists at a media parley in Abuja on Tuesday,
Raymond Dokpesi, chairman of the party’s rebranding conference, said PDP ought to have stuck to its zoning arrangement. The arrangement would have led to the emergence of a candidate from the north but Dokpesi said the former ruling party was aware of the “errors” and was making efforts to make amends.
The PDP is aware that there were errors made along the way. There was no internal democracy, there was impunity within the party and there was no level playing ground.
Dokpesi also appealed to Nigerians, saying: “We admit that we made mistakes and we have not met the expectation of Nigerians. We apologise to people whose toes we’ve stepped upon. So far, whatever the PDP has done against anyone, we tender an unreserved apology.”
