Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Raymond Dokpesi, has denied rendering any apology on behalf of his party for fielding former President Goodluck Jonathan, in the presidential elections while inferring that the Nigerian media industry is peopled by liars.
According to Dokpesi, all he did was apologise to party members over the party’s zoning arrangement which was disregarded in the last general elections.
He said: “My attention has been drawn to claims in the media that I had apologised to the nation on behalf of the PDP over the fielding of former President Goodluck Jonathan in the last general elections. Such other media comments and reports actually went further to say that I had apologised for the misdeeds and wrongs done to the nation by the PDP in its 16 years in the saddle since the return of democratic governance in 1999.
“These reports were clearly deliberate and mischievous misrepresentations of what I said at the press briefing. I call on all PDP members nationwide to discountenance the misleading reports as the party has no apologies to offer anyone for its years of rule at the centre and the majority of the states.”
