Aminu Mohammed, final year student of the Federal University, Dutse, has apologised to First Lady, Aisha Buhari for criticising her.
Mohammed had in a tweet in Hausa said Aisha was feeding fat on poor people’s money.
His arrest created mixed reactions with the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) apologising to Mrs. Buhari over the tweet.
The tweet, which was posted on June 8, reads: “Su mama anchi kudin talkawa ankoshi.”
Muhammad’s tweet, accompanied by a photo of Aisha, loosely translates as “Mama has eaten poor people’s money and is now full”.
He was arrested by security operatives and arraigned before the FCT High Court No. 14.
However, Aisha on Friday withdrew the case against Aminu Adamu Mohammed.
Her prosecution counsel, Fidelis Ogbobe, said the withdrawal followed the intervention of well-meaning Nigerians.
Writing on his Twitter page on Sunday, Mohammed said he had no intention of hurting her feelings.
”I would also like to use this medium to express my heartfelt gratitude toward those that helped me go through the darkest hours of my life, man cannot escape his destiny but my incidence should serve as a lesson to all of us. Thank you all and one love.
”I would like to use this medium to express my sincere apologies to those I’ve hurt especially our mother, Aisha Buhari. It was never my intention to hurt your feelings and insha Allah I will change for the better. However, I’m also grateful for your forgiveness, thank you mama.”
