The immediate past chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Edo state, Chief Dan Orbih, has asked the All Progressives Congress to apologise to Edo people for deceiving them.

Speaking to reporters in Benin on Friday, Orbih also slammed the APC for its varying positions on the state governor, Godwin Obaseki, after the party disqualified him from the state Governorship primaries for June 22.

Orbih described the APC as a party full of hypocrites, noting that at one time the governor was qualified to govern the state and was praised for being a financial expert, but now it has turned on the governor.

He said: “Now the party has changed position essentially because of the problems the governor has with the National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.

“For me, the fact is that the people of Edo have not only been deceived, but they have also been made to bear the brunt of the deficiency in governance on account of the distractions that the governor has been subjected to through the dispute with the national chairman.

“The party as such owes it as a moral duty to apologise to the people of Edo State before it can be taken seriously in any competitive bid for the votes of the electorate.

“We are sick and tired of APC’s serial certificate scandals.”

Orbih faulted the ruling party for deliberately playing politics on the issue of the governor’s qualification, saying that it took the position to please the national leadership.

The former PDP chairman said in view of this, the APC owed it as a moral obligation to apologise to Edo people.

He said, “The APC owes it as a moral obligation to apologise to the people of Edo State for deceiving theM on the issue of the governor’s certificate.”
