Former Big Brother Naija star, Cross Okonkwo, has tendered an apology to the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate Peter Obi and his supporters over his recent controversial comment.
Recall that Cross was lampooned by netizens, over claims that Peter Obi, is being selfish with his presidential ambition.
In a short video from a political gathering titled “Atiku Youth World Outreach” that emerged online, the reality TV personality made this statement.
Cross, a supporter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, questioned in the video why Peter Obi is being selfish by running for office when he knows he won’t win in 2023.
The statement earned him several critics, while some described the statement as insensitive, others asked why he went for the BBNaija show knowing he will not emerge as a winner.
However, Cross during an Instagram live session, said the video where he made the statement about Peter Obi was not complete.
According to him, many people got misconceptions about him, notwithstanding, he is sorry about the statement.
In his word;
“Honestly guys I just want to say I am sorry, a lot of people got misconception about me. I am actually sorry for calling Peter Obi selfish. It was a long video and you know sometimes the media, they decided to cut half of it. It was a long video and I was trying to ask some questions about some certain things but they only cut that part, sorry.”
