PDP Repents, Apologises To Ex-National Secretary
Some leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) literally went on their knees on Monday to apologise to the party's former National Secretary, Olagunsoye Oyinlola.
The leaders apologized for what it called the injustice the former Osun State governor suffered.
The chairman of the PDP caretaker committee in Osun State, Sarafadeen Isola, who led a delegation of chieftains begged for his forgiveness.
“The decision to be member of any party is a personal one and we respect that decision of yours. Our mission is to come and ask for forgiveness, that you forgive us in your heart and we admit that what happened to you was an injustice and an error.” Sarafadeen Isola appealed.
The delegation included: former deputy to Oyinlola, Erelu Olusola Obada, former speaker of the state House of Assembly, Adejare Bello and former member of the National Population Commission, Lere Oyewumi, among others.
Oyinlola in his response said he cherished the visit and explained that the reign of indiscipline and impunity within the PDP led to his exit.
“I want to say that I did everything humanly possible to make sure that the division did not come from me. I went to the extent of writing to the leadership of the party, the then Mr. President to draw his attention to the issues that were eroding on the unity of the party but it seemed my own sincerity about the whole issues were misconstrued.”
“I want to take a recourse to the Bible which says “if your brother transgesses, rebuke him; if he repents, forgive him. it is on that score that I want to say I have forgiven and forgotten all that was done to me.”
He blamed former President Goodluck Jonathan and other national leaders of the PDP for his suspension as the National Secretary of the PDP.
