The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it is sorry for the “mistakes” it made while governing the country.

Uche Secondus, national chairman of the party, said this on Monday at an event in Abuja.

The PDP governed Nigeria for 16 years, from 1999 to 2015 when it lost power to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“We made mistakes. On behalf of my colleagues and members of this party, I apologise to Nigerians,” Secondus said.

“We have learnt from our mistakes. It was all part of our evolution process. Without it, there can be no maturity. I believe that PDP is more matured, to provide the best for this country.”

He, however, took a swipe at the APC for running a government of “propaganda”.

“We believe that everybody is aware now that APC government is using propaganda, intimidation, blackmail and running down the opposition,” he said.

“The fight against corruption can not and must not be selective. All anti-corruption agencies were established during PDP 16 years in government. Credit should be given to us.”

Secondus also accused the federal government of failing to contain the Boko Haram insurgency.

According to him, “Boko Haram has not only remained alive, but spreading under a new name, despite several political claims of dismantling it”.

Ahead of the 2019 general election, the PDP chairman also said politicians should not come to the party’s secretariat in Abuja for any hidden agenda.

“Go to your constituency and tell your people to vote for you. There’s no voting in Wadata (in Abuja), he said.
