Former governor of Imo State, Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha, have dismissed media reports, making the rounds, about a meeting between himself, and the sacked Majority Leader of the Imo State House of Assembly, Uche Ogbuagu.
Ihedioha made this known in a Press Release, signed by his Chief Press Secretary Mr Chibuike Onyeukwu, and made available to MaaziTV.
It reads in full:
PURPORTED LONDON MEETING OF RT. HON. IHEDIOHA AND UCHE OGBUAGU, FAKE NEWS, MISLEADING.
Our attention has been drawn to a fake news syndicated in the social media through elombah.com, an online news platform.
We wish to state clearly that the purported report, captioned: “Exposed: Alleged London Meeting with Ihedioha, Reason, for Uche Ogbuagu’s Removal as A majority Leader’ is fake news, misleading and a handiwork of blackmailers.
It is noteworthy to state that His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha CON, has not been out of the country since the Covid pandemic started in early 2020, and its attendant effect on global travel. The purported meeting therefore could not have happened and so its a figment of the writer’s imagination.
The purveyors of this unfounded report should settle thier political scores and leave His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha CON out of it.
The public is enjoined to disregard the falsehood in its entirety.
Media Aide to His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha CON
