Comedian Bright Okpocha, aka Basketmouth, has apologised to former President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan for insulting him.
Basketmouth had earlier blamed Jonathan for the present situation of the country.
In an Instagram post, He wrote: “Truth of the matter is that I would have voted anyone that could speak two words of English against Ex-president Goodluck Jonathan and that’s strictly based on the amount of greed and selfishness we witnessed from members of his (Jonathan’s) administration in the 6 years that he sat on the rock.
“I have said it numerous times that I am not a politician hence I try not to dabble in politics. However I think a few people interpret crying out against injustice by the one as campaign for the other.”
Barely 24 hours after making that post, Basketmouth apologised for “disrespecting” Jonathan.
He wrote: “I have to sincerely apologize at this point that in expressing my opinion in my last post which was primarily to clear the air about who I campaigned, supported or rooted for or didn’t, I was disrespectful to a man I have nothing but respect.
“The last President may have had some wrong advisers and consequently decisions were made that will eventually impact on the economy, however I am sorry if it came across as an attack on the man Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
“We all desired a CHANGE, majority voted for it, now we have it, it is definitely a process, a tough one because I know the hustle is real…believe me, I know.
“I trust it can only get better, let’s just try to be patient,” he added.
