The All Progressives Congress (APC) has finally spoken about the circumstances that resulted in the failure of the party to win the just concluded Edo State governorship election.
The caretaker/extra-ordinary national convention planning committee of the APC disclosed that it made some mistakes that made it lose the contest.
The committee said it would work to ensure that APC does not repeat the same mistakes in the Ondo governorship election, The Sun reports.
A member of the APC caretaker committee representing the youth, Ismail Ahmed blamed the defeat suffered by the party in the Edo poll on the power of incumbency and controversial party primaries.
He pointed out that the APC Edo governorship primary was marred by a lot of circumstances that could not be explained.
He also explained that the fact that the party was contesting against a sitting governor was another factor that caused a setback.
..Remember we ran against an incumbent governor and everybody knows the history of Edo governorship primary and there were a lot of circumstances we could not explain.
The APC chieftain, however, said the party intends to review the outcome of the Edo election to prevent repeating the same mistakes in future elections.
He insisted that the party would not leave anything to chance in the Ondo governorship election.
