Orubebe apologizes for his behaviour at collation centre yesterday, says he regrets it


Former Niger Delta Affairs Minister Elder Godsday Orubebe
has apologised for his behaviour at the collation centre in
Abuja yesterday morning. Speaking with reporters last night,
the PDP party agent, who held up proceedings and used
abusive words on Jega, said he regretted his action and
asked Nigerian to forgive his behaviour.

”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 apologise
to Nigerians and to the youths of this country.”

On President Jonathan conceding defeat, Orubebe said:
“Two things are in place. The president is the president
of everybody. As a statesman and as a president; he
has done what he should do.”
On whether the PDP will challenge the result, he said:
“I cannot decide for the PDP. It is a large family. We
were sent on an errand to come back to report. We
will go and report to the party and the party will take
the necessary action it has to take.

You remember what happened in Ekiti’s governorship
election when the governor congratulated his opponent
and the party went back and said this is what they
have seen. The candidate is not the party, he is a
candidate and he has acted very well as a statesman,
and as the president, the father of all. For us, we are
agents to be here to see what transpired here and give
report to them.”
