Uzodimma Never Criticized The Kanu-Imo Government’s Ruling In The Appeal Court

Social media reports that Gov. Hope Uzodimma criticized the Appeal Court decision that released detained IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu have been denied by the Imo Government.

The refutation was made by Mr. Declan Emelumba, the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, in a statement he signed in Owerri on Friday.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the Appellate Court discharged and acquitted Kanu on Thursday after quashing the allegations for which he was arrested and held.

Emelumba described the report as “fake, embarrassing and infantile”.

He claimed that the report was the work of miscreants, government enemies, and disgruntled opposition members with the intention of tarnishing the governor’s image.
He went on to say that the governor, as a law-abiding citizen who upholds the rule of law, could not have challenged the judgment, as the fake news suggested.

” After the series of successes recorded by Uzodimma in governance and other national assignments, disgruntled opposition and purveyors of misleading information have been trying to whittle down his popularity.

” Those familiar with the character of the state governor will affirm that he has never criticised the judiciary even when judgments did not go his way in personal matters.

” It is the height of mischief and perjury for anyone in the state to attribute such a comment to Uzodimma,” he said.

However, he advised those in charge of public information to exercise caution when carrying out their responsibilities.

In addition, because neither the governor nor any of his aides had responded to the Appeal Court’s decision regarding Kanu, he advised Nigerians to disregard the fake news.

” The fake news did not attempt to answer the fundamental questions of 5Ws and H,which are who, what, when, where, why and how, concerning any news story. This renders it fake and unprofessional,” the commissioner said.
