Okowa's Aide Sacked Over Facebook Post Begs For Forgiveness

Former Executive Assistant on Communications to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, Fred Oghenesivbe, who was sacked last week over Facebook posts against the governor has begged for forgiveness.

In an open letter to the governor, Oghenesivbe said he refrained from contesting his sack “to enable the governor to look into my plight and not to engage in the media war, and from public reactions”.

The sacked Governor’s aide affirmed the reasons given for relieving him of the post just as he acknowledged that his approach to the issues at stake had “directly or indirectly amounted to an act of inappropriate official conduct, more particularly the content and the grave error that occurred while distributing one of the messages to few government officials”.

“It fell into the hands of one of my core detractors and before it could be deleted, he went virile with it on social media”, he lamented.

Oghenesivbe stated, “I know for sure that millions of people across the state and beyond were surprised that I did not react negatively to my removal as Executive Assistant on Communication the governor of Delta State, and did not provoke media uprising.

“My candid intention was to enable the governor to look into my plight and not to engage in the media war, and from public reactions, it became glaring that my approach directly or indirectly amounted to an act of inappropriate official conduct, more particularly the content and the grave error that occurred while distributing one of the messages to few government officials. 

“Consequently, I wish to use this medium to publicly apologise to the Governor and the state government over any embarrassment or inconveniences my unintentional act may have caused."
