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.
