It can be recalled that few days back, he called out the government for not testing him, as he shared a video, which showed him purportedly with the symptoms of COVID19.

Sydney Talker who tested negative for the virus, revealed his result after he was called out by social media users for hiding it.

He was also accused of making the NCDC waste its test kit which is barely up to 100,000, hence the #SydneyWeyYourResult.

Taking to Twitter moments back, he finally shared his results which was negative as widely expected, and this further led to more bashing on the platform.

He has now taken to Twitter to apologise, explaining that he never meant to hurt or ridicule the NCDC, and promised to volunteer for them, if they would be needing his service.

See what he wrote below;

“I’M SORRY TO THOSE WHO I’VE OFFENDED WITH MY HEALTH ISSUES AND SPECIALLY TO TWITTER NG. I tried to explain myself on my Instagram live. Please You can check it out🙏🏾. Thank you

I didn’t lie
I didn’t prank
I didn’t chase clout
I didn’t do a skit
I was only trying to be a concerned citizen which most people interpreted.
But still TWITTER NG I’M SORRY 🙏🏾”

I have had a chat with Dr Olufunmilayo about this recent issues. I want to say I am sorry to everyone who was hurt by what happened in the last few days. I did not mean to hurt the hardworking health workers and the ncdc or ridicule them.

I wanted to highlight how govt can do better for citizens and I apologise that it looks like a mockery of health workers.

I would now join the fight against Coronavirus with every influence and power that I have. We all need to work to overcome this virus

And promise to regularly update people about safety measures.

If the NCDC allows me, I do not mind to volunteer for a few days to also help out with the good work they are doing.

I want to also say that nobody should use what I did as an excuse to prank the NCDC. That was not my aim or intention at all. And it will be terrible for anyone to do same. We must all speak against prank calls and I will join Dr Olufunmilayo and others to speak against it.

Again I’m sorry and I never meant to hurt anyone.
