Former Niger Delta Affairs Minister Elder Godsday Orubebe has tendered an apology for his outbursts at the INEC collation centre in Abuja yesterday. Recall that the PDP agent disrupted proceedings during the exercise and accused the INEC chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega of being tribalistic and biased.
Elder Orubebe hasn’t only rued his actions, he has also appealed to Niger Delta youths not to perpetuate violence but accept the poll result in good faith.
“Election is a passionate thing and I really regret what took place this morning. I was unnecessarily pushed by Jega to get to that level. I want to apologise particularly to young Nigerians that look up to take politics as a career to say that what happened was not intended to cause them any embarrassment.
To Nigerians generally, I regret my actions as even an elder in the church, and a leader, the young men expected to see a lot from me and I believe that if there was any disappointment they got from me I apologize to Nigerians and to the youths of this country.”
