Aremu Afolayan has given an update on the issue he had with immigration at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, which caused him to lash out at President Buhari and Ambode.
The actor said the issue his niece had with her passport has been resolved. He went on to thank “Ms Jumoke” and the Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo for “coming into the root of this matter” and helping to resolve it.
He said the air has been cleared and they have all apologized to each other. He added that his outrage was simply because he is an angry Nigerian who wants the country to be better.
He went on to thank those who denied him after his rant went viral. He didn’t call names but his brother Kunle Afolayan is the only one who came out in public to distance himself from Aremu’s actions so social media users have concluded that his message was for Kunle.
“I want to say a big thank you to most Nigerians for understanding that there was a need to have “ranted” the way I did. It’s actually for the betterment of the country. I met some wonderful and intelligent immigration officers today, THE MEN WITH INTEGRITY, May God bless you for standing for the truth and thanks For Educating me on some things I dnt even no since my existence as a Nigerian (Mr agbo). And I also spoke with the overall Oga of the IMMIGRATION thank you very much, sir.
Aremu also shared a statement by FAAN stating that no one needs to pay a bribe to immigration to gain access into the airport terminal, a statement that was prompted by his rant.
