Please, I can't think of a single thing that we will ever need to say "we got to".

...we need to get in close.
...we need to get close.
...we need to get close to him.
...we need to get closer.

Hola Mohalla is a three-day Sikh festival celebrated in Anandpur Sahib, Punjab, India, on the day after Holi, the colorful water-tossing springtime festival. Mock battles with ancient weapons are staged, and there are also exhibitions of traditional martial arts like archery and fencing. The important Sikh prophet, Guru Gobind Singh, started this fair sometime between 1680 and 1700.

I don't know where this statement comes from, or if it is a practice sentence being written now.

However, I would like to point out that you can only apologize for your own actions. You do not apologize for the interpretations of your actions by others. In other words, you apologize for what you did -- NOT for the misinterpretation of your actions by others -- that is scapegoating the issue, and is no apology, at all. I realize this does not answer the question presented.

We would like to apologize for our poor choice of words when describing the incident this afternoon. And so on...

We would like to apologize for misleading the media this morning regarding the incident at the chemical plant. We did not include information that was important in providing an accurate picture of the severity of the problem. (I have no idea -- I don't work at a chemical plant.)

Band competitions, similar to those held at Carnival ( see Trinidad and Tobago Carnival), are held at several locations throughout the island. There are also reenactments of the legend of Holika, complete with oriental costumes, crowns, jewelry, and flowers.
