PDP apologises to Nigerians for raising animosity within the political space

19 July 2016, 16:36Lekan Oladeinde

Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday apologised for the role it played in raising animosity within the Nigerian political space, saying it would henceforth concentrate on proffering useful solutions to the issues plaguing the country.

In a statement released by the party on Twitter, the PDP said the level of toxicity in the political space had led to drowning of otherwise patriotic conversations, in screams and shouts.

The PDP said the tension in the political space has also led to the burning of bridges, untold strain on personal relationships, and patriotic discussions on how to move the nation forwards, being overtaken by the same tension.

The party apologised for its role in building up the tension, promising to henceforth focus on providing cogent and competent solutions to the issues Nigeria faces.

Calling on its supporters to show more restraint and maturity, the PDP did not fail to mention that the government of President Muhammadu Buhari posses many flaws, and has failed in many aspects.

It ended the statement with a quote from President Abraham Lincoln of the United States, who said “We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection”.
