Orubebe apologizes for his behaviour yesterday, says he regrets it

Former Niger Delta Affairs Minister Elder Godsday Orubebe has apologised for his behaviour at the collation centre in Abuja yesterday morning. Speaking with reporters last night, the PDP party agent, who held up proceedings and used abusive words on Jega, said he regretted his action and asked Nigerian to forgive his behaviour.
”Election is a passionate thing and I really regret what took place this morning. I was unnecessarily pushed by Jega to get to that level. I want to apologise particularly to young Nigerians that look up to take politics as a career to say that what happened was
not intended to cause them any embarrassment. 
To Nigerians generally, I regret my actions as even an elder in the church, and a leader, the young men expected to see a lot from me and I believe that if there was any disappointment they got from me I apologize to Nigerians and to the youths of this country.”
On President Jonathan conceding defeat, Orubebe said:
“Two things are in place. The president is the president of everybody. As a statesman and as a president; he has done what he should do.”
On whether the PDP will challenge the result, he said:
“I cannot decide for the PDP. It  is a large family. We were sent on an errand to come back to report. We will go and report to the party and the party will take the necessary action it has to take. 
You remember what happened in Ekiti’s  governorship election when the governor congratulated his opponent and the party went back and said this is what they have seen. The candidate is not the party, he is a candidate and he has acted very well as a statesman, and as the president, the father of all. For us, we are agents to be here to see what transpired here and give report to them.”

Mr. Orubebe, go for an Anger Management session as soon as you can because you could have caused real trouble in the nation yesterday. Infact, you can go for a session with Prof. Jega, he will teach you to control your temper.

salifu ebiojo said...

What was he thinking before allowing his emotion to take over him, the fact is, he has succeeded in disgracing himself on national television and that can't be taken away.

The man's apology is not complete until he apologizes to Prof. Jega as well.

This apology clearly excludes Jega.This warlord isnt fully penitent until he personally apologize to Jega for calling him all sort of names without atleast giving him a chance to defend himself.

He did not apologise to JEGAAAAAAA
He was verbally and physically abusive towards Jega.
That man could have been really scared and ran off to his office which is what Orubebe wanted. But Jega calmly stood his ground and waited for the tout to stop before replying publicly.
Why was he insisting Jega go to his office...Where is the transparency in that

Adeola Felix said...

This man is still not remorseful of his action, how can he say he was unnecessarily pushed by Jega to do that. He still needs to tender an unreserved apology to Jega for character assassination.

Posterity will never forget what he did.

Dear "elder" orubebe,you just ruined your apology by alluding that someone else is/was responsible for your very public,uncouth behavior.

You should have left the apology as simple as it is without blaming another for your lack of personal control.

We all make mistakes sir.just own it without blaming someone else.

Good morning Nigerians

Elder Orubebe, take full responsibility for your actions. An apology where you still refer to Jega pushing you to the level you got to may not be perceived as a sincere apology.

Good he appologised, I could not believe ma eyes when I watched d drama unfold on TV. I've learnt a lot from this election.
1. Be careful of the friends u keep. Do away with bad friends.
2. Learn to behave with propiety & contain ur emotions - especially in public.
3. Never loose hope. Try, try & try & try again, you will succeed at last.
4. Humility & sportmanships makes you a better person.
Lindudu, I appreciate your work & all the timely updates u were giving us. Keep it up.

He should keep his stupid apologies to himself. He's a complete disgrace, if not that Jega handled his tantrum professionally and maturely, this tout of a man would have thrown the entire nation into a disasterous implosion.We wouldn't have been here commenting all sorts. He should just go and let us be. Satan wanted to use him, but failed because God was on our side.

He is only sorry he disgraced himself. Isn't that saying something? He still insists Jega pushed him. How exactly did Jega push a man of his status to display such extravagant level of anger and gracelssness?

no said...

You are a big fool sir. A leader weighs consequences that follow an event before acting. Indeed your actions portray your desperation and that of the party and equally showed the level of your irresponsibility also the degree of injuries you have inflicted on this country as former Minister of Police affair& Niger Delta

John said...

Prof. Jega did not push him, neither did he push anybody for that matter. That was a wrong excuse for his unruly behaviour.

That is ok. Apologies accepted

O oh! He is even an elder in the church. Just like the fake pastors who said that God has shown them that Buhari will never be President of Nigeria again. Fake pastors who are bound for hell. They will all mislead their church members. They are liars bound for hell fire.

Its not enough for people guilty of very serious demeanour to just say I'm sorry and we accept their apologies. They must pay for their actions.
Necessary govt agencies should file a case of disturbing public peace and embarrassing Nigerians in the full glare of the international observers and media.
Maybe a month in jail.
If we don't do this we are going to lay bad example and should expect worse motor garage behaviours in the future. U bet this man will be a wife beater and rascal. And his behaviour lends credence to the hypocrisy of Nigerian religious bigots. He should be stripped of the "elder" title conferred on him by his church.

Nigerians sha, most of all you idiots asking him to lie down & lick Jega's boots, can u even as much as use the words "I'm sorry"...the man has apologised to Nigerians, still you are demanding him to personally apologise to Jega. Is he not @ liberty to keep an enemy in Jega if he so chooses or would he have constitutionally erred in doing so? We were in this same country when one proclaimed "lover of Nigeria" promised hell & brimstone if he lost an election & the events of his threats manifested in no time. Scores of Nigerians saw their early graves. I'm yet to hear him say sorry for such an inciting statement. All you hypocrites are here saying nonsense
