..... Tenders Public Apology To Gov Samuel Ortom.



" Adams Oshiomole goes public to tender an apology and retract a publication released on July 27 2018 against Dr Samuel Ortom the current Governor of Benue State." 



Read Publication :


" On the 27th of July 2018 at the National Headquarters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and particularly in my capacity then as the Chairman of the party. I addressed different national issues as well as some events which occurred in Benue state, including the movement earlier that day of his Excellency, Dr Samuel Ortom (Executive Governor of Benue State) from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). "



" In the course of the press conference, I made certain comments about Dr. Ortom on the basis of information I have found to be false and baseless." 


" His Excellency Dr. Samuel felt embarrassed, defamed and deeply aggrieved by the comments I made at the said press conference culminating to litigation. "


" That politics aside, Dr Samuel Ortom is a dead friend and brother with whom I have shared so much in common, including mutual respect." 




" That as former colleagues and one time members of the Nigerian Governors Forum and most importantly as someone who I am just a phone call away from, any ridicule, embarrassment, spite and insult caused Dr Samuel Ortom is regretted. "


" Owing to the relationship we share and in the larger interest of peace, harmony and brotherliness, I believe a complete and unequivocal retraction of my comments made on 27th July 2018 and which Dr Samuel Ortom found offensive is proper and necessary. "


"In view of all the above, I hereby retract the comments made during the press conference on 27th July 2018 as it relates to Dr Samuel Ortom "
