A group known as “Concerned Friends of Stanley Amuchie” has dispelled a publication in an Owerri based tabloid, that their principal, Mr. Stanley Amuchie is now working hand in gloves with Governor Rochas Okorocha to scuttle the governorship ambition of Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, the governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming general election.
In a release signed by Chief (Sir) Humphrey Onukogu, and made available to Community Watchdog, the group said, though there has been enormous pressure on Amuchie to contest for an elective position, he has not publicly or in whispers declared his ambition to contest for any position.
They described the publications “as false, malicious and a figment of the imagination of parochial mischief makers and elements whose stock in trade is to dent and rubbish the image of people” whose profiles are on upward mobility.
They however said, “much as the said publication is provocative, false, misleading and aimed at causing disaffection, we also wish to state, that Mr. Stanley Amuchie, a seasoned banker, administrator and technocrat has all it takes and is highly qualified to contest for any position of honour, trust and responsibility hence his people and infact the entire Imolites will gladly key in, identify with and support him, if and whenever he decides to contest”. They therefore, urged the public to ignore and entirely disregard the rumours, and contents of the publications as they were made in bad faith.
