Over whatever role it may have played in bringing the nation to a deplorable state, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has apologized to Nigerians.
"Good morning, Nigeria.
"We have noticed, with a growing sense of dismay, the level of toxicity that pervades the political space with respect to discussions on national issues.
"This toxicity, some of which finds expression in discussions across social media platforms, has reached the level where bridges are being burnt, personal relationships are being strained and an unnecessary tension fills what should ordinarily be patriotic and enlightening conversations on how to move the nation forward.
"We are dismayed that this tension has reached the level where the finer points of our national conversation are drowned out in shouts & screams across the political divide.
"We accept responsibility and apologise for whatever role we have played in reaching this level of toxicity.
"Henceforth, we commit to focusing only on the issues and proffering cogent & competent solutions to the issues facing the nation.
"We urge our supporters and the believers in the ability of our party to provide these solutions to henceforth show more restraint and maturity as we point out the many obvious flaws of this administration and proffer solutions & alternatives to their many failures.
"We will end this admonition by quoting one of our favourite quotes from Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States of America.
"God bless Nigeria."
