Audu Ogbeh, a national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday clarified his statement and apologized to the leadership of the #BringBackOurGirls movement for any discomfort he may have caused the movement.
In an issued statement, signed by Ogeh, he said he decided to clarify himself after he was wrongly quoted in certain circles. “I feel obliged to let you know that my statement at our function last week was not intended to paint your group as an APC sub-group. This is because, from what we now know, less than two per cent of the group are our party members, but members we value highly. “The rest of you are not and may not even belong to any political association whatsoever. This is not to say that you have no right to be if you choose to,” he said.
He then went on to apologize to the movement. “If my statement caused you discomfort, I do apologize, but reiterate that I have nothing but respect and admiration for you for keeping a six-month vigil and telling the world that the Nigerian conscience is not entirely dead. “The world is watching us and making judgments,” the statement said.
