Popular Nigerian comedian, actor, and writer, Bovi has called on the ThisDay Newspaper to apologize to him and his wife over their publication that goes viral in the last week, which stated that he (Bovi), was issued a visa in the US Embassy while his wife (Kris Ugboma) was denied the same.
Meanwhile, Naija News had reported earlier that the management of ThisDay Newspapers has suspended two of its editors, Mr Yemi Ajayi and Mr Olawale Olaleye, for misinforming the general public on the Bishop Oyedepo’s Visa report.
This was coming after the Newspaper publishing company had apologized to the Bishop on their publication, stating that it is sorry for every pain the false report might have caused him.
See Apology below;
It was in this regard that Bovi has demanded an apology from ThisDay Newspaper.
The comedian noted that the apology ThisDay Newspaper published on their paper is yet to be complete until he and his wife are mentioned.
He wrote; “Dear @thisdaynewspaper Editor, I just woke up to your apology to Bishop Oyedepo about the false story you published on him.
“I’m beginning to question whether you even read the story you’re apologizing for in the first place. Because if you did, you will know that in the reporter’s bid to add sting to the story, it was stated that I was issued the visa while my wife was denied.”
He added that the apology proves that neither he nor his wife were at the Embassy on the day stated on the false report.
Bovi said, “The slide above shows that neither I nor my wife was at the embassy on the said date, as your report suggests. Did you think my name and that of my wife in your sensational story were inanimate objects? Are you trying to measure us? What makes you think that the spice you added in cooking a poisonous meal should not be sifted as you try to purify your brand? Do you have any idea how damaging your story was to our peaceful life? Do you know how many calls and texts we had to respond to because of your story?”
“What you have done is irresponsible, unprofessional, condescending and indecent. Your job is based primarily on research and information gathering. So if you really do not know me, note that I’m as global as your mind can imagine.
“If you’re apologizing to the Bishop, it is incomplete without recourse to me and my family.
I urge you to further your education to avoid such errors in future. Thank you.”
