Amosun: I Didn’t Say Western Nations Wicked

A former Governor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has described his recent interview with the British Broadcasting corporation in which he reportedly condemned visa issuance to Nigerians by foreign embassies as a deliberate misrepresentation.

According to some media reports on Saturday, the Senator representing Ogun Central, during the interview, described foreign countries as “wicked” for encouraging the emigration of Nigerian youths in large numbers.

Amosun, in a statement signed by his media aide, Bola Adeyemi, on Sunday, said the choice of the word “wicked” was the reporter’s and not his.
