In what could best be described as calling a truce, Godwin Obaseki, Governor of Edo State, has apologised to aggrieved members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, particularly ex-aspirants of various political positions in the 2019 general elections.

Governor Obaseki offered the apology at a meeting with some of the former aspirants at Government House, Benin City, on Wednesday.

According to the governor, the action was pertinent following the recommendation of the Theophilus Okoh-led ommittee set up to reconcile the aggrieved members of the party.

Speaking alongside party leaders in the state, the governor pledged to ensure the reconciliation of all members in order to move the APC in Edo State to greater heights.

Governor Obaseki said: “After reading the Okoh Committee report and watching videos, I really appreciate you all and say we are truly sorry for what you may have gone through during the 2019 primarily election.

“Out of the primaries arose almost 20 court cases of those that claimed they were deprived of the opportunities to contest.
 
“To build trust, confidence and demonstrate that we truly want to reconcile the aggrieved members of our party, within a week of receiving the Okoh Committee report, we have to call a meeting to talk to our aggrieved members.” 
 
He called on the party members to join hands together with his administration to build the  party.
 
“We are proud of our achievements as a government and people are appreciating our administration for moving the state forward”, the governor said.
 
Charles Idahosa, who is one of the leaders of the APC in the state, called on all party members to support Governor Obaseki as the state’s 2020 governorship election approaches.
