Nollywood actor Aremu Afolayan has apologized to President Muhammadu Buhari and Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode for his “harsh words.”

The actor had shared a video lamenting issues he faced in the airport when he drove his family over for a trip.

    This is everyday life for the average Nigerian. The authorities responded because he is an influential man with international reach. They only respond to international shaming,

    So now they have intimidated him like they did TuBaba. I cannot even blame him for not standing by the conviction of his words. Nigeria is certainly not worth dying for.

    BN, are you deliberately trying to stifle your commenters? Are you understaffed? Or are your moderators just lazy/incompetent?

    Next time, think before you act and embarrass yourself. There are more decent ways of handling things.

      Incase you missed it, he didn’t embarrass himself. He got what he wanted. The major way to get the attention of the government is to be popular and be a rabble-rouser. The apology is just to fulfill all righteousness.

    What a bunch of buffoons. This is a microcosm example why Nigeria will NEVER move forward. Can’t wait for the Country to completely collapse and its totally anarchy. WE ALL DESERVE WHAT IS COMING.

    So can only those with only boarding passes and passports enter the airport?
