US Senator Apologizes for His Insulting Remark about Nigerians

ted_cruz-pix

US Republican Senator Ted Cruz jokingly told a rally on Monday 21st that Nigerian email scammers have been hired to run the Obamacare website, a comment that a lot of Nigerians found offensive. His full statement of apology reads:

 “It’s unfortunate that we’re living in a time where just about every joke can be misconstrued to cause offense to someone.
To the good people of Nigeria – a beautiful nation where my wife lived briefly as the child of missionaries – no offense was intended.
I am fully appreciative of the range of mutual economic and security interests that make Nigeria an important friend to the United States.
And even to those few unscrupulous email scammers who were the subject of the joke, I apologize to you for the unfair comparison to the utterly dysfunctional Obamacare website.”
