The Erelu Okin of Kemta Kingdom, Pearl Chidinma Ogbolu who shared kegs of petrol as souvenir at a party has addressed the public.
She apologised for sharing petrol as a souvenir at her installation party amidst fuel scarcity rocking the country.
The apology was sequel to the backlash from Nigerians over the viral video where kegs of petrol with stickers “Erelu Okin Foundation Installation Party” were shared at the ceremony.
DAILY GIST reports that some kegs of petrol were shared to guests at a party amid the fuel scarcity in Nigeria.
Photos and videos shared online show kegs containing petrol lined up for guests at the Erelu Okin Foundation Installation party which held today, March 4, 2022.
The kegs of petrol were seen handed to guests at the party to celebrate Ogbu’s installation as Erelu Okin of Orile Kemta at the Havillah Event Place, Oniru in Lagos.
Fuji artist, Malaika, was present at the party and expressed his surprise at the unconventional souvenir.
A guest at the party told social media users that the content of the keg is not groundnut oil, as many assumed, rather it is petrol.
Ogbolu, who took to her verified Instagram page on Saturday, wrote: “I want to use this medium to apologise for the momentarily indiscretion of bringing fuel Souvernirs into the hall.
“My intent was just to show appreciation to my guests for turning up at my event at these hard times.
“I have paused to reflect and truly apologise and I thank you all for your understanding and criticisms.”
