The All Progressives Congress has expressed happiness over the apology of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to Nigerians.

The party said it is happy that the PDP has finally admitted putting the country in a mess.

The National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, had on Monday apologised to Nigerians for failing them.

“We made mistakes. On behalf of my colleagues and members of this party, I apologise to Nigerians,” Secondus said.

Reacting to the statement, the APC through its spokesperson, Bolaji Abdullahi advised the PDP to stay out of power for a long time in order to prove to Nigerians that they had truly repented from their sins.

Abdullahi said: “Our response to this (apology) is that since PDP has realised and accepted that they are sinners and that their crimes of the years brought Nigeria to this sordid state we found ourselves today, we are glad with the admittance.

“It is good that they have finally accepted but now that they are willing to atone for their sins, they must have to spend sufficient time in the trajectory to show that they are truly repentant.

“Again, they have to wait for Nigerians to forgive them before they can even begin to dream of coming back to power.

“All these desperate campaign from PDP did not show that they have truly repented. If they really want Nigerians to forgive them, they have to be remorseful and demonstrate that they are sober.

“They have to show that remorse by staying away from power because as it is now, we cannot even trust them with power since they have not shown much sincerity.
