Angry Actor Aremu Afolayan Apologises For Calling Buhari And Ambode Bastards

Actor Aremu Afolayan, has apologized to President Buhari, few days after he blasted airport
officials and the government in a now viral video.

He had specifically accused the airport officials of demanding money from him before his
“family members” could see him, just as he berated President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor
Akinwunmi Ambode, and Ethiopian Airlines for the frustrating travel procedure.
Reacting to the viral video, FAAN released a public statement notifying everyone that access to
the terminal is free.
“The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) hereby notifies all passengers and other

airport users that access to the terminal building is free. All passengers and airport users are
therefore advised not to give money to any ‘airport official’ to gain access into the terminal.”

Well, the actor has also now taken to social media to apologize to the authorities involved after
everything was resolved by top authorities both home and abroad.
He wrote;

“I want to say a big thank you to most Nigerians for understanding that there was a need to have
“ranted” the way I did. It’s actually for the betterment of the country. I met some wonderful and
intelligent immigration officers today, THE MEN WITH INTEGRITY, May God bless you for
standing for the truth and thanks for Educating me on some things I don’t even know. This is for
the entire security officers of the NIGERIAN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, for having
me in their office today and speaking to me like a true NIGERIAN. And to the Ethiopian airline, thanks for coming in at the same time to make Everything seems cool and clear. I Want to say sorry for my comments on your Airline and the great Ethiopia country. A big sorry the chief of armed forces of the federal republic of nigeria his Excellency muhammadu buhari and his entire family, And a big sorry to the governor of lagos state his excellency mr Akinwunmi ambode and his entire family for calling them bastards. I am sorry to my fans both home and abroad”

You may recall that the actor took to his Instagram page on Sunday, November 11, 2018, where he shared a video blasting the government and the airport authorities. He went on to caption the video with his experience at the airport and the poor treatment he witnessed being melted on a young Nigerian.

“So frustrated today by the situation of this country, the people working at different parastatals
actually think they are some kind of god. Ethiopian airline staffs are so inefficient. They refused
to carry a passenger for no reason. The girl in question is not a citizen of Nigeria, she went with
her France passport and other documents issued by the France consulate , all they needed to do
was to verify the passport but no the manager said he is not comfortable with the passport so
she can’t fly with them, he actually dropped the passport and took to his heels.
“Imagine the immigration saying she should get a Nigerian visa, for what? I don’t know. How will
you ask her to get a Nigerian visa to go to France, I don’t understand this and I need some
explanation, after that, they said she should get a Nigerian passport, for what please??? this is
wrong and I am so angry at that. The same manager has agreed to carry the girl with additional
cost and all. Which way Nigeria, why are treated like uneducated animals and why are these
people acting like important fools, all you need to do is do your job and do it right. When will this

“The security at the departure are not helping matters, how can you ask me to pay to let my
family see me off to the check-in point, this is wrong very wrong. Even the immigration officers
wants to collect money for anything they do ....why why-why. And I know the mayor
@akinwunmiambode of this and every other state can find a lasting solution to this , the
president @muhammadubuhari himself can override things to set them right but I bet they don’t
even know people are traveling out of the country, check the airport all you see are Nigerians
running away from the country. I have never seen an EMIRATI or an AMERICAN that will run
away from their country. Until you have no one to governor be a president over before you know.

This is not the first time we will be seeing a celebrity actually drag the government over issues
in the country.

He should sha be careful... He rants unnecessarily... To eliminate him is not gng to be hard, trust me..

Endy Edeson

@Goodie: Eliminate him? Who's going to do that??? Well, the question needs no answer.😎 I think he ranted without fear because of his high social status . @Jeremiah: It is good he apologised for peace to reign

Aruoture Goodie

Intelligent people are always in control of not only their tongues but also their senses.

Niyeck Nandack

In today's Nigeria, the fear of DSS is the beginning of wisdom since the "security" of the nation supersedes the freedom of any citizen.

Salako Saint's Stephen

Why sorry you say the truth

Bussy Duro

The guy no want to die na

Darlington Ebuzo

Did things turn around, no one told me. When did people start apologising for saying the truth?

Solomon Bakare

The guy did not conduct himself appropriately and his reactionary tantrum yield s nothing. Just because you are a victim and popular does not give you the right to castigate everyone in a basket. Nigeria is greater than everyone of us and shall outlive us all. Be modest in your reactions.

Oluwaseun King Sofoluwe

Good he apologized but his complaints aren't false. If anyone has been in these situations, you'll understand how he feels. I've been there. It's very frustrating and to know that it's happening as a result of corrupt practices is what makes it more annoying.
