A former aide to Governor Samuel Otorm of Benue, Terhide Utaan, has written to the governor seeking for forgiveness over his criticism in the build-up to the 2019 elections.
Recall that in 2019, Mr Utaan while addressing the press, had accused the governor of creating crisis in Guma local government area where both hailed from.
However, in a letter addressed to the governor and made available to newsmen on Sunday, Mr Utaan said his utterances towards the governors are regrettable.
According to the former aide, who contested for Makurdi/Guma federal constituency in the last general election, pleaded to the governor to bury the hatchets and move on.
“I regret addressing that particular press conference that has angered you so deeply and I again ask your forgiveness.
“I regret my comments both in context and content and I must admit that they were ill-informed and grossly mis-representative.
“To err is human my brother and my Governor but to forgive is indeed divine.
“Please forgive and forget the ugly past and give me a chance to prove my newness of heart,” he said.
