‘Ihedioha didn’t sneak into Assembly complex to beg’

The immediate past deputy speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly , Okey Onyekanma , has debunked the speculation that he led the former governor of the state , Emeka Ihedioha , to the Assembly to plead for pardon over the ongoing probe into the alleged missing N 19 .68 b local government funds.

The ex -deputy speaker said this in an interview in Owerri , on Sunday .

He said , “(My ) attention has been drawn to a doctored picture attached to a story circulating online , insinuating that the immediate past Governor of Imo State , His Excellency , Rt . Hon Emeka Ihedioha, sneaked into the state House of Assembly complex recently , with the aid of the former deputy speaker, Rt . Hon Okey Onyekanma , member representing Mbaitoli State Constituency , to plead with lawmakers for ‘soft landing ’ in the ongoing probe of N 19 . 68 b LGA funds.

“ The peddlers of the fake , unsubstantiated and damaging news , edited an old picture to give undeserving credence to their misinformation.

“ We wish to state , without any fear of contradiction that the picture was taken in July , 2019 , when Rt . Hon Emeka Ihedioha , as then governor visited the Imo State House of Assembly “ It is unfortunate to note that some people who are on wild goose chase doctored the picture and imputed the picture of the Governor of the state, His Excellency , Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodinma, asserting that H .E Rt . Hon Emeka Ihedioha and Rt . Hon Okey Onyekanma ( Nmaoha ) visited the speaker of IMHA , recently .

“ The news is fake and I urge the general public to treat it as such .”
