APC National Chairman John Odigie-Oyegun has expressed his reservations on the governorship election in Bayelsa state which was concluded on Saturday January 9th. Speaking after a meeting with President Buhari at the villa yesterday January 11th, Oyegun said the party was saddened at the level of bloodbath witnessed during the election.
"The Bayelsa election has come and gone. We have very deep regrets that there was so much blood that was spilt in the process. We have a lot of reservations, some of which our candidate has very eloquently expressed.‚ÄĚhe said
He also spoke on the current fight against corruption by the current administration
"The APC is not in any way apologetic. We promised change and there is a lot of rot in the system. This must be cleansed and whoever and whatever ox is being gored, where ever the tree is going to fall, so, let it be. We must get use to the fact that in the process of cleansing this nation, there is going to be a lot of bullets to bite. The APC has not been in office at national level for the last 10 to 16 years. So, the issue of whether somebody is PDP or not PDP does not arise. We have a nation to cleanse. The president has committed himself to that and that and we should fight it whatever way it comes. We are not being apologetic about that at all. It has nothing to do with witch-hunting. It just happens that the dramatis personae of the period all happened to be on one side of the political divide.‚ÄĚhe said
