I’ve not resigned as Imo Deputy Governor, says Prof. Njoku

By Victor Nwachukwu

Professor Placid Njoku said he had not resigned as deputy governor of Imo.

This is contained in a statement by Njoku’s chief press secretary Ozioma Ukwuoma in Owerri on Thursday.

Njoku dismissed reports on social media that he had quit as unfounded and urged the good people of Imo and the general public to ignore the reports.

“My attention was drawn to the fake news circulating on social media claiming that Imo’s vice-governor, Professor Placid Njoku has resigned.

“While it is always our practice to ignore such baseless stories, the need to reveal the truth to concerned Imo citizens has necessitated this rebuttal.

“This story has no iota of truth, but is only a figment of the imagination of those working against the government and people of Imo State.

“Prof. Njoku has a strong working relationship with his boss, Governor Hope Uzodimma, and indeed with all members of the state executive council, including members of the state legislature,” he said. -he declares.

Ukwuoma urged the people to ignore these unfounded rumors and continue to support efforts to maintain peace and development of the state. (NAA)
