Ochereome Nnanna Apologizes To Yoruba Nation by calculator123(m): 9:57am On Jun 13
I Plead For Forgiveness From The Yoruba Nation
__________________________________________
Once again, I wish to humbly appeal to all Yoruba people to please forgive and forget my indiscretion on my Facebook comment on Friday, 9th June 2018 which, understandably sparked off widespread outrage. I never imagined in my wildest dream that an offhand remark could provoke an anger of volcanic dimension which has threatened my career and Vanguard Newspapers as an institution.
The offensive comment did not come out the way I intended it - as familial joke - but as an adult I am solely responsible for the outcome. One moment of madness has threatened my 29 years of living and working in Lagos during which I have made friends from all ethnic groups, and not among the least the Yorubas. I sincerely regret this unfortunate incident.
I must say that the indiscretion was not done at the behest, or on behalf of, Vanguard Newspapers. That is why I have serially issued my heartfelt apologies to my Yoruba compatriots both as a group and personally to those whose contacts I possess. Happily, almost all of them have shown uncommon understanding because they know me very well and have followed my work as a journalist closely.
Nothing could be further from the wrong notion of "ethnic hatred" some have ascribed to me. I have enjoyed mutually beneficial relationships with people of Yoruba ethnic stock as with a cross-section of other Nigerians, both high and low. This is probably not the forum to go into details on this because of space constraints. Therefore my apology is total and without reservations.
I take the blame for my failure to realise the damage such careless and irresponsible comment could cause. It is a big eye-opener and lesson to me. I regret the trauma this unfortunate episode has caused everybody.
I am willing to play any role required of me to end this matter peacefully and promote understanding. I have learned my lessons and I am eager to prove that I have no hatred for any group whatsoever, not least the Yoruba ethnic group. Their generosity of heart has promoted the corporate existence of Nigeria and provided all Nigerians and even foreigners a condusive environment for self-actualisat
ion.
On this note, I completely retract that offensive post because it neither represents what the illustrious Yoruba nation stands for nor my perception of them. I call on all my friends, kith and kin to please join in all efforts to restore confidence, mutual respect and love which were badly shaken since this nightmare started.
Thank you, and may God bless you all. And may God bless Nigeria.
Your compatriot,
OCHEREOME NNANNA

Doesn't change the fact that he spoke the truth.

If the 'sophistication' has led us to this disaster called Buhari and yet some people who should know better are campaigning for his return, then m.oron is a good noun.

History is repeating itself.
Afonja in the 1820's allied with the fulani and regretted it. The late great Obafemi Awolowo (whom I respect) made the mistake of supporting the North against the Igbos in 1967. How did he end up in 1979 ? Betrayal and a disputed election.

Many people pray before eating their food despite knowing who prepared it, I think we should start praying before posting stuff on Social Media as well. smiley

Mr Nnana, we know ur apology is due to mounting pressure from close ones since you live in Yoruba land. And an attempt to save face and most importantly.

We know too that ur apology has nothing to do with remorse. We re aware of the fact that you and ur kins hate the rest of Nigerians and you discuss it in ur private moment.

Although, we have forgiven you but we will have to be very careful and suspicious of ur every move.
Looking at ur face in the picture below, it's scaring to imagine the dark hate that boils within you.

So, this foul mouthed man can apologize after all gra gra? He even Iives in lagos, wonderful!!! I thought he wanted to turn Vanguard to a regional newspaper na... let's see who stands to lose.

The only apology he can give is to tender his resignation or rather, Vanguard should show him the way out. Otherwise, with all due respect Sir, Shut The Fuk UP.

Same thing with Innoson. Any slight thing, "oh, he is from the East, other regions are jealous." But is innoson building cars to sell to the East or to all Nigerians? I want to believe this tribal madness only exist on Nairaland.

STRONG MEN STAND ON THEIR WORDS. THIS MAN NO GET LIVER. You should have saved enough not to regret loosing your job. This man is like KANU NNAMDI withdrawing when the heat is unbearable.

Be ready to open your overrated sophisticated slowpoke newspaper if this apology is not accepted by the OBAS AND ONI'S.

Apology or no apology, he has no business remaining the editorial chair of Vanguard newspaper.

He has shown that he is a bigot and so he cannot be objective on the job.
