Nigerian broadcaster, Ahmed Isah, popularly known as Ordinary President, has blamed his temper for his physical assault on people down the years.
A contrite Isah has prayed for a ‘good temperament’ after the incident that led to the suspension of his radio station.
The National Broadcasting Commission suspended Human Rights Radio for a clear violation of the broadcasting code.
Isah came under heavy fire after a BBC documentary that premiered on May 17, 2021, showed him losing his cool and subsequently 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 in her head.
Isah has since apologised for his action.
In a Twitter post on Monday, the embattled broadcaster said, “No matter the good you do, pray for good temperament.”
The broadcaster disclosed that 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!!”
Ordinary President hosts a long-running radio and television programme known as Brekete Family.
The show may yet return to air as his radio’s suspension is for a duration of 30 days, according to NBC.
