“I want to therefore write this message to extend my sincere apology to HE AU Ganduje & his family for my unfortunate Facebook post in early January 2022 that may have resulted in unintended hurt to HE and his family as well as the unintended perception that may have borders on HE reputation and Leadership.
“Without given any excuses, the said posted picture was not originated by me but I was made to understand shortly after my posting it on my Facebook page that my posted comment with the picture may have been misconstrued by many as an intended attempt to spread harm to HE character and morals.“it was therefore immediately taken down from my page after few minutes of my posting as it was never in any way intended to spread or mislead the public on HE character or leadership.
“I do sincerely apologise for the pain and distress my posting may have unintentionally caused HE Ganduje and his family.
