Fred Latimore Oghenesivbe, the sacked Executive Assistant on Communications to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, has pleaded with his former boss for forgiveness.

Daily Report Nigeria can recall that Latimore was sacked over alleged insubordination, last week.

The sack was preceded by an outburst by Oghenesivbe that he has never been treated fairly by the Governor in the last five years, further suggesting that Okowa hae become nepotistic due to some elements he has surrounded himself with.

In a Facebook post titled, ‘Tribal Bigot’, Oghenesivbe said he was persistently denied benefits that accrued to others in the media department of the state government.

According to the embattled aide, he only got two 25kg bags of rice and a paltry N50,000 out of a recent N25 million released by Governor Okowa to his media team.

However, Oghenesivbe in an open letter of a plea for forgiveness said the post went viral after a ‘grave error,’ as it fell in the hands of his detractors.

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

“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 EAC to H.E. the Governor of Delta State, and did not provoke media uprising.

“My candid intention was to enable the governor look into my plight and not to engage in 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. 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.

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

“I pledge my loyalty to the Governor as a financial member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and as a Party Chieftain.

“I thank God Almighty that the termination of my appointment was not based on gross incompetence and negligence of duty. I gave my all to the Governor and this administration from April 3, 2017, till 29th December 2021, and in the process made so many enemies for myself. I am a one-way traffic loyalist.”

“Let me state clearly that I will never in any form go against my former boss, the governor of Delta State, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa, or this administration either now or in the future.

“I urge Deltans and party faithful to continue to give our amiable Governor and this administration the needed support and prayers to finish strong in 2023. He is the father to all Deltans and I remain his loyal subject.”
