A former Governor of Enugu State Senator Chimaroke Nnamani has reacted to the report of $41.8 million dollars judgement against him in the United States describing it as a ruse.
He pointed out that the report was fake news and targeted at maligning him because of his alternative views on the recent political development in the country.
‘Campaign of calumny, intimidation, insults, and abuse orchestrated to suppress and diminish my voice. However my voice will grow louder and more persistent. I know my recent position will attract this attack by those who cannot tolerate alternative views. Democracy allows alternative viewpoints.
‘If I cannot express my opinion and take a stand who will’
‘There was no such judgement anywhere. The author of the fake news Samuel Ogundipe is a known blackmailer. The story of Samuel Ogundipe with the Air peace airline is still fresh In our memories. I’m not surprised that Ogundipe has offered himself as a willing tool for this hatchet job once again.
‘I left Enugu State on a solid foundation 15 years ago. Records of our accomplishments is an open book. No amount of mudslinging can rewrite our history.
‘I urge our people and Nigerians alike to ignore the mischievous report sponsored by political foes and professional blackmailers,’ he said.
Nnamani had recently come out with a verbal affront on the supporters of the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Dr Peter Obi, where he clearly described them as noisemakers.
He had stated this after a face-off with an Obidient supporter, @McCa_Xn, on Twitter.
Nnamani, who is seeking a return to the National Assembly, had earlier vowed that Labour Party would not be allowed to win any political office in Enugu State, saying ‘bye-bye for Obidient’.
