Former Governor of Enugu State, Sen. Chimaroke Nnamani, has dismissed as a ruse, the report of a $41.8 million judgment against him in the United States
Nnamani in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja, said the report was fake news and targeted at maligning him because of his alternative views on recent political development in the country.
” It is Campaign of calumny, intimidation, insults and abuse orchestrated to suppress and diminish my voice; however, my voice will grow louder and more persistent.
“I know my recent position will attract this attack by those who cannot tolerate alternative views; democracy allows alternative view points, if I cannot express my opinion and take a stand who will?
“ There was no such judgment anywhere, the author of the fake news is a known blackmailer.
” The story with the Air Peace Airline is still fresh in our memories.
I’m not surprised that the author has offered himself as a willing tool for this hatchet job once again.
” I left Enugu State on a solid foundation 15 years ago, record of our accomplishments is an open book; no amount of mudslinging can rewrite our history.
” I urge our people and Nigerians alike to ignore the mischievous report, sponsored by political foes and professional blackmailers,” he said.
