Watch the moment Nigerian Senator who physically abused a lady issued an apology.

He made the apology at a press conference at the PDP headquarters in Abuja.
The Senator who was closed to tears at the briefing asked for forgiveness, saying it is not in his character to assault women.
In his words, “I personally apologize to Bibra and her family for my action towards her, which has brought immense discomfort in our body polity.”
I have never been known or associated with such actions in the past. Regardless of what transpired prior to my expression of anger, I am sincerely sorry and plead that all men and women of good conscience should have the heart to forgive me. To err is human, to forgive is divine. “To the Church of God everywhere in the world, I am sorry. As an Ambassador of Christ, much is expected of me.
“My family and religious upbringing do not give approval to such conduct and for this, as a leader, I seek forgiveness before God and all those who feel offended by my action. “Indeed, this episode has taught me a very great lesson both as a private citizen and a public officer, particularly as a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria upon whom public confidence is bestowed.”
