In his words;

“I have read your honest feedback& suggestions& I sincerely apologize for addressing the youth as “Children.

And I did not mean to be insensitive with this, I bore it out of the magnitude of destruction&looting of businesses I witnessed when I went on a tour of my constituency.

I saw women crying and my constituent members distraught as a result of the damages inflicted on their source of livelihood.

I was moved by this while giving my submission on the floor of the House.

And I allowed my emotions to get the better of me and for this, I apologize to everyone my earlier statements may have hurt.

Please, understand that even the best of us make mistakes.

This is why, moving forward, I ask that we all try to engage constructively on the issues that affect all of us. I promise to do the same.

The pain that I feel for my constituents, the calls for assistance that I continue to get,

and the need to mitigate against further destruction and violence will continue to drive my engagements and my work.

I thank you all for expressing your views, and in the future, I promise to be more conscious and aware.

Together, we will build a better Nigeria.
