Political falsehood is an attribute of the weak, and when falsehood is repeated by persons who are in no position to know the truth it begins to look like the truth.
It is therefore based on this premise that we are compelled to make the following statement in response to the malicious falsehood conceived and spread by one of the supporters of YPP Governorship candidate, Engr Enyinnaya Nwafor to the effect that his principal sponsored the election of Governor Ikpeazu in 2014/15 and at the election petition tribunals.
While we would not have bothered to respond to such balderdash, it is pertinent to expose the puerility of such warped, jaundiced and facile narratives woven by elements desperate to satisfy their sponsors at the expense of public good.
For the avoidance of doubt, Engr Nwafor never gave any ‘shishi’ to Governor Okezie Ikpeazu either for his election campaign or for his defence at the election tribunal. We hereby throw a challenge to Engr Nwafor to publicly repeat the same statement himself or provide evidance of such transaction.
On the contrary, Nana is the one who has benefitted immensely from the deliberate policy of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu to patronise local contractors in order to grow local companies including those of Nana involved in construction. Suffice it to state that Nana is on record to have received one of the highest patronage from Abia State Government under the current Ikpeazu-led administration.
Mr Ikpechukwu Iroha
Special Adviser to Governor Okezie Ikpeazu
