  1. Eeyah,some people will just be posting anyhow online,they are not mindful of what they type.that is too bad

  2. It is always good to look before leaping. However, there is room for forgiveness. I advise the guy to accept the apology.

  3. Think b4 you speak…public post needs to be edited properly b4 posting…is good he apologise..

  4. Some people don’t think before they act. Later they apologize after the damage has been done

  5. Hahaha.. Shut up your dirty mouth goat.. Lol..
    Now let’s face the fact, Mr Johannes Tobi called for that mistake of tweet.. Why tweeting boldly that Mr Peter Obi started with lies? As you are trying to defend your boss Mr President, so is another trying to defend what he believes too.. Please there should be freedom of speech biko..

  6. That type of errors is too much, after you called someone goat and you said it is errors
    Well thank God they have apologized.

  7. Hmm. It’s not good to lavish words anyhow. Words are like toothpaste when altered cannot be retrieved to the mouth.

  8. We don’t have to pour out insult on someone online just like that, really bad and its looks so uneducated.

  9. Guinness has no busy with politics. Or are they playing politics too. The handler was just so unprofessional with his job. He should be forgiven by buhari aide and later sacked by Guinness

  10. It’s always good to exercise some caution and not allow our emotions and feelings get the best of us. Although apology was made but the damage done might not be easily reversed. That’s a fact

  11. Comment*hmmmmm
    you alone knows the essence of the apology
    I wonder why some people won’t think twice before posting to the public

  12. It is better as you apologise…and next time be mindful of what you post…there is no freedom of speech in this country.

  13. This guy apologized because he knows that his job at risk. Believe me if his guy had sent that tweet from his account he wouldn’t have apologized. Cos if you understand the statement very well u will see what he wrote THIS TWEET HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH GUINNESS …

  14. Well sometimes I think we should just have to reread everything we type on a social media before you can send to the receiver because we just have to be mindful of what we tell people in order not to hurt their feeling or even spoil there day…….please accept his apology and let go of the anger it must have caused you

    • He shouldn’t hv talk like they have them self’s at heart before we should learn to accommodate our selfs

  15. One needs to be extra careful when taking anything to the media, before a mistake can be corrected many people would have seen it. I think PMB should accept apology forgive.

  16. Apology has to be made if not the image of the company has to be protected . People should have to mind the way they comment on issues.

  17. It means he know that he is wrong. that is a good quality of leadership. know what you did wrong is good.

  18. Hmm, what can I say, let me say apology accepted, even the said johnnix say such he is not better than Peter obi

  19. Good That You Disowned Him For Unguided Comment, He Should Also Be Made Regret His Action To Teach A Lesson Of His Life

  20. Probably he acted out of anger cos of what Nigerians are going through but there was no need for it, Nigerians are wise now to know what they want. You apologising means you were really sorry.

  21. It is always good to look before leaping. However, there is room for forgiveness. He just did that out of frustration and what going on in the country

  22. Buhari’s media aide please forgive them they are very sorry but please we should all learn from this, before posting anything on a social media or to anyone please we should read it carefully.

  23. Guinness has no business with politics. Or are they playing politics too. The handler was just so unprofessional with his job. He should be forgiven by Buhari aide and later sacked by Guinness.

  24. Very good of the handler to apologise but i think the presidential aide should also apologise for tweeting BS about Peter Obi.

  25. It is very paramount that one has to be careful with one’s words. Words are powerful. It’s good that he apologized.

  26. Since he has apologized I think he should be forgiven, I think he did it out of frustration, he should be forgiven since they say there’s no permanent friend nor enemy in politics

  27. Why can’t some people learn to control their mouth on social media…. it’s a free world but we should be mindful of our words and actions on social media…. I knew that tweet can’t be from Guinness b4 Cox it’s very immature

  28. Is like his tired of his work,dont you lie everything you say is hundred percent truth, nonsens Guinness should just forgive him.

  29. That was too raw and rude, the management have done a good job to quickly address the issue. To protect the company image

  30. Mr Peter Obi started with lies? As you are trying to defend your boss Mr President, so is another trying to defend what he believes too.. Please there should be freedom of speech biko.

  31. Is a lesson well learnt and hope it won’t happen again. Not good to allow our emotions to over shadow our good sense of reasoning. This could have gone far to damage the image of the company but with this damage control by apology, i think is OK.

  32. we should be very careful of what we post on any social media platform, because the people willl surely grap it.

  33. I know he did that out of frustration and to save the image of the company and securing his position but it wasn’t totally his fault johannes on the other side should learn how to air his view politically without insulting, speaking to rudely and tweeting nonsense

  34. That word is in matured,have! How can he just say anything he likes but I assume it’s was the anger and frustration that made him to say that word and thank God he realized that he has done wrong and he apologized publiy that’s very good of him

  35. It obvious he has realized his mistake and had to apologize. But we should learn our lesson here. Think properly before we say or act

  36. He has realized his mistake and has apologize, we should watch what we say on social media, I hope your apology will be accepted

  37. Please find in your heart to forgive him since he has apologized and you be careful because next time ,you might not find it funny

  38. Is anyone here are still claiming that its was a mistake ?

    That was not a mistake but intentionally
    Mind you Guinness defiantly knew what they are doing

  39. The member wanted to loose his job because of political debate and he can contribute to unpeaceful reaction

  40. Thanks he apologize on behalf of his company, people should learn from this. No matter any condition we are now, God knows our mind

  41. Thanks he apologize on behalf of his company, people should learn from this. No matter any condition we are now, God knows our mind.

  42. I would have said they should have think before talking because this will never paint a good image of Guinness Nigeria, but since Oduntan Odubanjo, the Commercial Director of Terragon Ltd, managers of @GuinnessNGR Twitter handle has already apologise sincerely, they should just be pardoned. Let them see it as a big error from Guinness Nigeria.

  43. That guy wrote it out of frustration because of what Is happening in this country but the truth must be told we should never talk or write in anger that is just the fact

  44. Been patient alwz helps,hot tempered can kill more than anything,let’s be mindful of what we talk or express

  45. You are more educated to make such comments on social media but all the same I hope your apology would be accepted.

  46. That a great indeed, great leader, I always appreciate all his appearance. And also he knows the right things at the right time.

  47. You did well apologizing and taking measure to prevent future occurrence. What made the team member react in such a harsh way?

  48. Guinness Nigeria has absolutely done well addressing the issue by apologising. That team member of Guinness Nigeria is supposed to be well punished for this offense

  49. That individual is not worthy is not worthy of that position
    Why lash out in such abusive manner to anyone like an illiterate especially one who is sure older than you and of a higher status still
    I’d recommend Guinness fire him
    Forget the apology
    Cos such individuals when dealing with customers could drive them out

  50. It’s good he has apologised, he shouldn’t have called him a goat, he took it too personal, all the same hope the president aide accepts his apologies

  51. The person responsible for the tweet should be denied access to guiness again, what concerns Guinness about politics

  52. Some staff members sef.Does it mean that they don’t go through adequate orientation and trainings in their field.

  53. That was too bad, one has to be very careful while dealing with anything concerning the company account, because any slightest mistake can damage the company’s image and can lead to great loss.

  54. He must have sent it out of anger even though it was entirely wrong . I hope the person accepts his apology

  55. Probably he acted out of anger cos of what Nigerians are going through. It is better he apologized, by this, peace will reign between them

  56. The question is why will he use Guinness tweeter handle to accuse somebody ? That manager should be cautioned .

  57. People should really watch wat dey say and tweet..its not all about apologizing.. Avoid starting the problem at first

  58. He has cleared the air with his apology to buhari media aid, which shows that he didn’t do it knowingly but unknowingly

  59. But for real let him shut up… His a goat… I won’t apologize though… But for the fact that he is representing a company… It’s good he apologized

  60. Some people smoke weed at work and find it hard to control their emotions.. Hope your apology will be accepted

  61. U didn’t not think before answering. We should try to control anger and frustration s. U are now apologizing because u knew what a loss it will bring to your company if u didn’t

  62. Probably the guy was just frustrated or so…but anyways…hmmmm…its all settled…and he got the punishment for his frustration

  63. Well, as it seems the person apologising is not the offender but is the manager and knows what such could cause.

  64. You shouldn’t expect the president’s media aide to speak in your favour. Note that he’s paid to do what he’s doing now and he can’t stop doing it.

  65. We shouldn’t not anger to take control of us. Make us say what we shouldn’t say and regreat it after

  66. Well, while the apologies should be accepted, it doesn’t dislodge the fact that a point was made in the first place. And that point is for the aide to shot up.

  67. Well sometimes I think we should just have to reread everything we type on a social media before you can send to the receiver because we just have to be mindful of what we tell people in order not to hurt their feeling or even spoil their day…….please accept his apology and let go of the anger it must have caused you.

  68. Good one coming from guiness Nigeria. You’ve taken the right step in the right direction. I feel the apologies should be accepted without further grievances.

  69. People just post on social media forgetting their office. Posts on social media is now quite relevant, people should have that in mind at all time
