Aggrieved workers of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday apologized to the leadership of the party over their actions during the week-long internal wrangling that hit the party.
The party’s National Working Committee has demanded an apology from the workers before their demands will be looked into and resolved.
The workers had earlier vowed not to apologize because they were not be blamed for making the crisis a public discourse.
In an apology letter addressed to the Acting National Chairman, Uche Secondus and members of the NWC, the staff said they regretted their actions.
“Following inflamed passions, several allegations of corrupt practices’ bordering on speculation were raised against our respected members of the NWC. We regret the unintended consequences of our allegations especially the resultant damage caused to the reputation of members of the NWC and the party.
“Arising from the same inflamed passions and frustration, it has now dawned on us that proper channels of communication were not followed in expressing our grievances.
“To this end, we hereby offer our unreserved apology to the members of the NWC as well as the teeming members, supporters and stakeholders of the PDP for this unfortunate development.
“We regret any unintended consequences of our actions and inactions especially considering the efforts of the NWC to reposition the party to play a credible role as an opposition party poised to save Nigeria from emerging fascism,” the workers said.
