I Am A Disgrace To The Youths, Orubebe Confesses As He Apologises For Insulting Jega


Former Niger Delta Affairs Minister, Elder Godsday Orubebe has acknowledged that he was a disgrace to Nigerian youths to whom he ought to have show good example in politic, even as he apologised for his behaviour at the collation centre in Abuja yesterday morning.

Speaking with reporters last night, Orubebe who was the PDP party agent and who held up proceedings of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) at the election collation centre 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.” [myad]
