Big Brother Naija season 7 winner, Josephine Otabor aka Phyna, has retracted her statement on abortion, admitting that she made a mistake.

VerseNews gathered that the reality TV star had come under fire after stating that there was no woman who had never had an abortion once or twice.

“There’s no woman that’ll say she hasn’t done it (abortion) one or twice,” she said in an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo.

But in a statement on her Instagram page on Friday, Phyna admitted that her assertion was inaccurate.

She partly said, “Good day to all and sundry, I am Josephine Otabor aka Phyna and I write this statement to address the issues concerning an interview I did months ago where I talked about a very sensitive topic and I inaccurately suggested ‘all’ women have engaged in it.

“Firstly, I will like to address the fact that in as much as I was misunderstood, I didn’t mean to project it on every female gender.

“I will never encourage abortion especially not in this part of the world, where it can pose a great threat to the life of the person with the illegal and unhealthy procedures that surround it.

“I admit that I was being too expressive in the heat of the interview hence my assertions. I will reiterate that abortion is not a thing I stand for and I should not be seen in that light and I admit to all mistakes made.”

“In addition, I’m currently working with gender-based organisations and NGOs to provide sensitization, education about abortion and other societal issues prone to the girl child.

“I want to use this medium to thank my fans, friends and family for their constant love and support, I do not intend to let you down.”
