Dialogue Committee apologizes to Oshiomhole

The Presidential Advisory Committee on National Dialogue has apologized to Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State over the unruly behaviour of one its members, Col Tony Nyiam (rtd) who led some participants at the conference held in Benin City, Monday, to shout down the governor when he was making his presentation.

In a letter signed by Chairman of the Committee, Senator (Dr) Femi Okurounmu, titled “Dialogue Committee condemns unruly Behaviour”, it noted the sad incident at Monday’s interactive session, saying: “The committee wishes to state its unequivocal commitment and that of its members to the principles of democratic discourse. Although we take special exception to the unruly conduct of one of our members who joined the crowd in shouting down the Comrade Governor of Edo State, Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole, while he was giving his remarks, the session continued and ended peacefully.”

 “We want to emphasize that the Committee will listen to all shades of opinions in the areas of its mandates and will not henceforth condone the kind of unacceptable behaviour we witnessed in Benin City. The committee wishes to express its sincere appreciation to the Government and people of Edo State for providing support to the Committee in its assignment in the state”, it added.
