Nigerian broadcaster, Ahmed Isah, popularly known as Ordinary President has blamed his short-temper for his physical assault on people in the course of doing his work.
He hosts a long-running radio and television programme known as “Brekete Family”.
Isah prayed for “good temperament” after the incident that led to the suspension of his radio station.
Last week, TheNigerialawyer had reported that the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) suspended the Human Rights Radio for a clear violation of the broadcasting code.
The suspension will last for 30 days according to the commission.
Recall that Isah came under public scrutiny after a BBC documentary which premiered on May 17, 2021, showed him losing control and slapping a lady identified as Susan.
Susan was accused of burning her little niece’s hair whom she claimed is a witch. From the documentary, the little girl suffered burns on her head.
Isah has since apologised for his action.
He was also joined by several listeners, some of whom called in to apologise on his behalf on his show.
In a Twitter post on Monday, he said, “No matter the good you do, pray for good temperament.”
The broadcaster said he got into trouble because of “hot temper”, adding that he is a “learner” on the job.
“Na hot temper put me for this trouble wey I dey so. I no dey hide mouth! Na learner I be!!” he said.
