Akwaibom Pastor Mr Ntia apologises to Obi Cubana over ‘harsh, unkind’ comment . A Pentecostal pastor has publicly apologised to a popular Nigerian nightlife entrepreneur, Obinna Iyiegbu, popularly known as Obi Cubana over a controversial comment. Mr Cubana, a few days ago, thrust himself, his brand, his friends, and his Oba community in Anambra State, Nigeria’s South-east, into limelight when he buried his late mum with style and glamour that seemed unheard of in any part of Nigeria. Aside from numerous celebrities, amazing gift items, including hundreds of cows, wads of naira notes were frequently thrown into the air by Mr Cubana’s friends during the burial. Clips of the ceremony, posted on the Internet, got Nigerians talking – several people who attacked Mr Cubana, questioned his source of money, while others defended him as “a good and generous man”. “The place where you are standing to spray money, the road is not tarred…. Can’t you see the stupidity of illiteracy,” Ntia Ntia, the pastor of Full Life Christian Centre, Akwa Ibom State, reportedly said of Mr Cubana. Mr Ntia’s remark attracted outrage from several Nigerians who said Mr Cubana was a better man and “more godly” than many Nigerian pastors. ‘I’m sorry!’ The pastor retracted his statement and apologised to Mr Cubana, after the backlash. The pastor said his comments on Mr Cubana were “very harsh and unkind “I want to say that the comments came out very wrong and prematurely. With further information, the life that the man has affected, the people that the man has lifted, the destinies that he has invested in, sincerely I want to say that it is not my intention as a preacher to preach to cause hurt or to cause pain or to preach to discredit anybody, at all. “As a preacher, my assignment is to preach words that heal, not hurt, words that help, not harm. Therefore, in any way those comments might have caused harm or pain, I sincerely apologise.” He also apologised to Mr Cubana’s friends and others who may have been hurt by his comment. Mr Ntia said Mr Cubana is “a great man, with the things he has done”. He said he regretted his comment, and that he has “100 per cent” respect for the businessman. “We need more of such people who have a heart for others and would go to a great extent to invest in others,” he said. Besides, Mr Ntia said his wife is from Anambra State, and, therefore, Mr Cubana is his in-law.
