The Northern Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Daniel Bugri Naabu has stated that his recent outburst following his public brawl with the Minister of Gender and Women Affairs Otiko Djaba was due to extreme anger and provocation.
Mr Bugri who apologised to the party in an addressed letter, said he has no proof or evidence to support allegations levelled against the minister saying he prays he does not repeat his actions in the future.
“I repeat unreservedly that, such conduct would never be repeated. It is my sincere prayer that, I would never repeat such a conduct again. It was due to extreme anger and provocation that I uttered those words as I do not have any proof or evidence to support those allegations. I very much regret for the embarrassment and inconvenience caused to the leadership of the party and the country as a whole. Hope this apology would be accepted by all and sundry,’ he said.
His letter of apology comes immediately after the party executives asked the two to resign from their positions.
The regional minister ‘unruly’ disrupted a meeting organised by the minister in Tamale claiming the meeting was aimed at kicking against a name tipped for the school feeding programme position.
