Professor Placid Njoku, Imo State deputy governor has debunked reports of his resignation and has asked the general public especially the Imo people to disregard any report on it as fake.
According to him the story of his resignation has no iota of truth in it but a mere figment of the imaginations of those working against the Government and the people of Imo State.
“My attention has been drawn to the fake news circulating in the social media purporting that the deputy governor of Imo State, His Excellency Prof Placid Njoku has resigned, Njoku’s Chief Press Secretary, Ozioma Teddy Ukwuoma, said in a statement.
“While it remains our practice to ignore such baseless stories, the need to put the truth out to concerned imo citizens has necessitated this rebuttal.”
“The Imo State Deputy Governor, His Excellency Prof. Placid Njoku enjoys a robust working relationship with his boss, His Excellency, Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma, Executive Governor of Imo State and indeed with every member of the state executive council, including members of the state legislature.”
“Imolites are enjoined to disregard such unfounded rumours and continue supporting the peace and development of Imo State.”
