Former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Elder Godsday Orubebe has apologized for his outburst at the collation center for the 2015 elections. He made this public while speaking with reporters last night at the International Conference Center (ICC) as he regretted his actions and allegations towards the INEC Chairman, Prof Attahiru Jega accusing him of being partial and compromised.
“Election is a passionate thing and I really regret what took place this morning. I was unnecessarily pushed by Jega to get to that level. I want to apologise particularly to young Nigerians that look up to me to take politics as a career to say that what happened was not intended to cause them any embarrassment. To Nigerians generally, I regret my actions as even an Elder in the Church, and a leader, the young men expected to see a lot from me and I believe that if there was any disappointment they got from me I apologize to Nigerians and to the youths of this country.”
He commended the president for conceding defeat during the presidential elections and is looking forward to taking the reports from the elections back to the PDP.
