Upon facing series of backlash for saying Yorubas are sophisticated morons, the Vanguard Editorial Chairman has publicly apologised via the same means he used to commit the initial blunder

His apology post read;
From the bottom of my heart i thank you all for expressing your feelings, I have forgiven all. Forgive me too. Let’s be friends again

Demands that he should step down or be fired by his employers also escalated over the weekend which led to the apology eventhough he reportedly refused to apologise claiming that his statement was viewed out of context

The Drama had staerted when Areh Sunday, a journalist and an aide to Delta State Governor, while reacting to President Muhammadu Buhari’s declaration of June 12 as Democracy day on Thursday had gone to his Facebook page to express his disappointment in Yorubas for falling for the antics of the government of the day.

He posted:
“I use to think the South-West was very sophisticated. I was wrong. They are the most gullible. They fall for every poisoned carrot dangled before them”

Reacting to the post, Nnanna wrote:
“Sophisticated morons, more like”

With the level of chaos caused by the bigotry over the weekend, Vanguard was forced to deny having involvement with Nnanna’s comment in an official press released statement
