My attention has been drawn to a report on Vanguard newspaper where I was falsely quoted to have said that “PDP ‘ll collapse if Gov Ikpeazu picks Ngwa candidate.”
This Press release is to clarify that at no point did I, Chinedu Bright Ikeokwu, grant an interview with any journalist. It is not in my place to determine who succeeds my boss in 2023.
It is quite disappointing that a newspaper of repute such as Vanguard would descend so low as to publish an unverified story.
Governor Okezie Ikpeazu is my leader and boss. His directive is naturally binding on me. He leads and I follow. I am 100% loyal to his leadership and will continue to give my unalloyed support.
The general public is advised to disregard the report and treat as fake news wherever seen.
I have consulted with my lawyers and will explore every legal measures to address this propaganda against my person and office.
