Governor Hope Uzodinma has debunked the speculation that he intended to rename Imo State University, Owerri, after late Chief of Staff to the president, Abba Kyari.
Uzodinma’s spokesperson, Oguwike Nwachuku, made this known in a press statement on Tuesday.
He said that the speculation was “false”.
The statement read in part, “The author(s) of the fake news had not only credited to the governor what he could not have said, but they criminally wrote the name of his Chief Press Secretary/Media Adviser, Mr. Oguwike Nwachuku, as the one who signed the purported statement.
“Since last weekend that Kyari passed on, the same persons have been issuing press statements, forging the logo of government and the name of Nwachuku with the intent to deceive Imolites in particular and the public in general into believing their propaganda and fake news to be real.
“In one of such fake statements they issued and also circulated on social media, they mischievously credited Uzodimma to have said he would immortalise Kyari for ‘making him Governor’.
“How would any person believe the complete thrash that Uzodimma will in a condolence letter say that the late Chief of Staff to the President made him governor of Imo State?
“It was their desperation to deepen the propaganda and criminal intents that drove them to the latest fake news of purported renaming of Imo State University after Kyari, something that only exists in the imagination of their tiny brain’s imagination.”
