Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, yesterday admitted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) made a lot of mistakes in the past, but said they were committed to righting the wrongs to enable the party move forward.

Speaking to journalists when he led other principal officers of the House to meet the leaders of the party, Dogara described the meeting as a family affair aimed at finding solutions to the problems.

According to him: “There were many mistakes made and we will not run away from them. If you think that we can have a party that will not have challenges, you are just deceiving yourself. You can’t put the party in an autopilot as it were and expect that it will run on its own.

“If you don’t expect mistakes, you will have a situation where ghosts will be taking charge. As long as it is an institution where human beings are involved, no one is perfect. In a situation where you don’t have perfection, certainly there will be mistakes.”

He added that: “We looked at all those areas and some of them that are family issues which you can not bring to public glare. But as sons of the party, we have been able to look at those areas and I can assure you that we have addressed them.

“We came to look at where we were and where we are going to as a party. Very frank exchanges took place during this first engaging meeting with stakeholders of the party and we discussed a lot of issues including the relationship between the leadership and the executive, the relationship of the leadership of the National Assembly with the executive all in a bid to move forward.”
