–         Says, Report Fake, Baseless, Mischievous

Major General Jack Ogunewe (Rtd) a Chieftain of Labour Party who participated in  the governorship primary election of the party, has debunked speculations that he is under pressure to accept the deputy governorship slot of the All Progressive Congress APC in Imo State.

Ogunewe who was a leading governorship aspirant on the platform of Labour Party, who stated this in a release he issued, described the speculations as spurious, ill conceived and the mischievous handiwork of agents of confusion, discord and destabilization.

The release that conveyed his displeasure about the report reads in part, ‘’ My attention has been drawn to the news making rounds that I, Major General Jack Ogunewe (Rtd), is under pressure to accept the Deputy Governorship slot of the APC.

“Ordinarily, this seemingly spurious and ill conceived report should have been ignored and consigned to the dustbin of history, as same is speculative and unverifiable, aimed at creating mischief and confusion in the minds of unsuspecting members of the public. It has, therefore, become increasingly necessary to set the record straight and state as follows:

“1. That I have no business or plan of accepting the Deputy Governorship slot in Imo APC.

“2. The report that I’m under pressure to accept Deputy Governorship slot in APC is for all intents and purposes fake, unfounded, baseless, and only exists in the imagination of those carrying this fake news.

“3. To this end, therefore, my teeming supporters, the OBIDIENT MOVEMENT, and the entire Imolites all over the world are hereby enjoined to disregard the said malicious report, as same is aimed at destabilising the equilibrium.

The RESET IMO agenda is Sacrosant’’.
