Doyin Okupe has backtracked on his earlier statement that infuriated Igbos and Nigerians all over the world.
The former presidential aide wrote : “A national consensus for Igbo Presidency cannot evolve until the core north forgives the Igbos for the killing of Sardauna of Sokoto by Nigerian soldiers of Igbo extraction in the 1966 Coup.”
His tweet raised a lot of dusts and fetched him abuses from Nigerians on social media.
Hours later the father a homosexual son had to apologise to the entire Igbo race and Nigerians: “OPEN APPOLOGY TO THE IGBOS. I tender my unreserved apology 2 d Igbos & other Nigerians who felt offended by my post on Igbo presidency and the north. I never intended to hurt or demean the Igbos. Instead I wanted 2 help actualise d dream. I regret d said post, & I am truly sorry.”
