"I personally apologize to Bibra and her family for my action towards her, which has brought immense discomfort in our body polity, adding, 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.

He went further to assure Nigerians as well as the people of Adamawa North that he will be of good conduct going forward.

"Finally, I assure Nigerians, especially the people of Adamawa North of my good conduct at all times." he said
