POLITICS: Popular Nigerian Gospel Singer SAMMIE OKPOSO Apologizes to Buhari

We all know that gospel singer SAMMIE OKPOSO is a strong supporter of Goodluck Jonathan’s administration probably because of the financial gains he gets. He is employed to sing in all PDP rallies, you definitely know how much he will be paid, if you were him, won’t you sing praises for PDP even if you don’t really like their administration. That’s what money can do. Though he has apologize for insulting a man old enough to be his grandfather. I’m not a supporter of BUHARI but I don’t find it funny when people disrespect their elders. We all know that BUHARI doesn't have a CERTIFICATE, that shouldn't warrant anyone especially a respected GOSPEL Singer like SAMMIE OKPOSO to insult him. 

Award-winning musician and producer Sammie Okposo has taken to his Twitter page to apologize to All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, for his recent remarks accusing Buhari of perjury and of forging the school certificates needed to become President of Nigeria.

During the controversy, which was dispelled by the publishing of the retired general's school documentation, Okposo stated that Buhari should be 'flogged' for perjury and forgery. Yesterday, on Twitter, the gospel artist changed his tune. "I deeply apologise to GMB 4 joining to accuse him of perjury & Forgery, im sorry GMB," Okposo tweeted Friday.

"I deeply apologise to GMB 4 saying he should be flogged," he furthered. "He is old enough to be my father i shouldnt have disrespeted him im sorry GMB."

The artist also tendered an apology to fans that were offended by his comments.

And an apology makes everything go away, right? NOT.

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

@ Endy. How do you know GMB doesn't have a CERT? The one he produced hasn't been deemed fake. So why the insinuations?

Yvonne Onaibe

Even though I don't want APC.......i don't like the embarrassment this man has been facing

Prince Oluwa Chidiebere

@JESSE dont go dat side

Kenny J Oyeduntan

Ds guy is not a true journalist

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

@ Prince. Its a side worth going to. We've heard all PDP has thrown from the religious side to fundamentalism to age to cancer now certificate. What next?. All has been proven to be FALSE. Why keep beating a dead horse?.

Iruoje Leader Augustine

jesse it seems u a buhari supporter, anyways try to look at d copy of buharis cert posted online and u won't need even a dullard telling u hw fake it is.

Kenny J Oyeduntan

endy of course @ Prince. bcs he played partisan politics. he said "buhari doesn't av a certificate which we all kno". is dt d right thing to say as an unbiased journalist?

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

@ Austin. Then why is it fake?. Any points?.

Endy Edeson

@iruoje: at least, you and other Nigerians know the FACT. @kenny: what are you saying? how can you say am biased when i'm writing according to accepted FACT. i will always remind you guys that I'M NOT TAKING SIDES but my opinions are "FACTS BASED" though it might not go down well with some people. @jesse: it's okay to say things the way it should be done without sentiments. i know you are BUHARI supporter but try and admit things that you know is truth. the problem in this country is that most Nigerians or electorates don't want to read or SEE their wrong doings of the ASPIRANTS, religious leaders and political godfathers. they can go extra miles to protect their image.

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

@ Endy. And still no reason has been pointed out as to why its fake. For you to come out with such confirming statement means you have your evidences. Why's it fake?. Other than to think its the same ploy to discredit?.

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

@ Endy. Let's be clear on something. Not all that seem like facts are facts. Some said facts can be misleading. That's like using stats to judge things. Things that pass the eye ball test are better.

na bold face dem dey do. d position of Mr president requires a minimum standard of qualifications. It is a pity that people come to defend the indefensible. It happened with Tinubu as governor of Lagos state when it was discovered and unveiled that he did not possess the certificate he claimed. he used his power as a governor to 'kill' the matter. now it is happening with again, under the watchful eyes of Tinubu. the dangers of having a person who does not merit his position is to incorporate fraud from day one because others will be making his decisions for him. Go to Kano... Kwakwanso and his group are sad about the certificate issue.. they are the very ones fuelling the wahala underground.. not even the PDP that is making noise. has anybody discovered of late that Kwakwanso is not at peace with Buhari? did anyone notive why PDP had such large turnout at Kano as against APC? this is modern world... people should learn how to diagnose information to avoid heartbreaks

Monday Onoja

The truth must be told. He must apologise to him publicly. He should be ashamed of himself for endorsing corrupt administration through music

Endy Edeson

@okey: thank you very much for shedding more light into this matter. where on earth is ATIKU and KWANKWASO during BUHARI rallies? are they no longer APC? why don't we see them campaign for their man? Mr. OKEY what you said is true. That's how our leaders do. i just remebered that Governor Oshomole is APC and JESSE is from EDO State. Jesse, now i see why you are a very huge supporter of BUHARI, come rain, come shine. i notice that a supporter of Oshomole, AMAECHI, Fashola & co are also a supporter of APC presidential Aspirant to the core. as for me am not supporting anyone.

Olajide Young Johnson

am ashamed of u sammie okposo- as old as u are u still allow urself to be used for political reason, but why pdp put themselves under pressure- they were rattled-from one complain to other about buhari- instead of them to face their own political structure they are busying talking abt buhari case that does not concern them. This is not d first that this man is contesting why now- if pdp led administration were sure of their performance then it's fine, beside it was d duty of Inec to see to d authencity of buhari's certificate not pdp

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

@ Endy. I'm actually not a supporter of Oshiomole though I do see his better Govt. His past as a Labour leader doesn't mesh with me but he's done well enough for the Edo people. The demonization of Buhari is what really makes me laugh. From the ridiculous to the absurd that its quite frankly impossible to know what next the PDP will come up with. They've never gone to such lengths to discredit a candidate which says something to me.

Anuforo Osinachi James

Cambridge has confirm Buhari certificate to be true and genuine

Kenny J Oyeduntan

@endy, u claimed u are not supporting any candidate, but frm ur statements, it's quite clear dt u are a goodluck fan.u dont nid to fool anybody here.as an online journalist, av u confirmed dt d cert is fake?

People are still dumb after finishing sec sch. Can a statement of result be faked wen u can get it from d school anytym u want!!! Some people av sold their future already before d day of election!!!

Ray O. Ezechi

Educated men being decieved by clueless and criminals in power into doubting the authenticity and genuineness of a certificate that could be verified locally and in the best institutions in the world where the certificate has been used to further excellence and obtained enviable honour . And it pains and baffles when people who are trusted to give accurate and unbiased information are themselves the real agents of deception. Wahala dey for naija.

Ada Steve

Well done, Sammie. Your action shows you got some good morals. No matter whom we support in life's race, we should also know that we all have basic human rights. Buhari or Jonathan... They both deserve some respect. Its not a joke to be an Army General neither is it child's play to be a President of a country. Majority of Nigerians who engage in name-calling cannot spell simple words rightly and yet they find the spleen to type rubbish on social media pages. Bastards!!!

Odiba James

Tell dem!! Statements of result and transcript can be given on request but original certs is once in a life tym!!!
