Our attention has been drawn to a highly mischievous publication being circulated online by the notorious blackmailer and fake news purveyor called Fabian Ihekwueme alias “Omu”, wherein he maliciously credited a false statement to the Imo PDP governorship flag bearer, Rt. Hon Emeka Ihedioha allegedly discrediting Catholic Priests and indeed our very revered and most respected Arch. Bishop of the Owerri Catholic Arch Diocese, The Most Rev. A. J. V. Obinna.
Obviously, this publication is coming from the enemy camp that has become increasingly frustrated by the souring popularity and wide acceptance of Hon Ihedioha across the state, beyond denominations and particularly the Catholic Church and Its hierarchy.
For the avoidance of doubt Rt. Hon Emeka Ihedioha holds Arch Bishop Obinna, the Catholic Priests and the entire body of the Catholic Church in very high esteem and enjoys a symbiotic and cordial relationship with them. There has never been and will never be an event, circumstance or venue where such anti-Christ statement would emanate from Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha whose Christian background and respect for the Church and its leaders has never been in question.
Sadly, the originator Fabian Ihekwueme is known to be a man without honour, who takes delight in peddling fake news. Fabian Ihekwueme is notorious for using blackmail as his only stock in trade to earn meal tickets in the hands of any willing politician who guarantees him the next meal. Remarkably, the shameless Fabian Ihekwueme did not quote any date, event, occasion or encounter where the falsely attributed statement was made.
This latest fake news by Fabian Ihekwueme who purports to be the Director New Media and Strategic Communication to the APC Governorship candidate exposes the deep frustration of his group after many deliberate attempts to distract the momentum of Hon. Ihedioha whose character they have found difficult to impugn throughout the course of the electioneering campaigns.
We therefore enjoin our increasing supporters to disregard the malicious statement orchestrated by those who do not wish Imo well. We urge Imo people to rather focus their attention on the desires of Imo people in their main objective to elect a man with a proven character and track record as their governor whom they can repose absolute trust to rebuild and transform the state.
We enjoin Imolites to use the upcoming season to pray for our dear state and come out en mass to vote for the PDP come 23rd February and 9th March, 2019, so that together we shall rebuild our dear state.
Long live PDP
Long live Imo State
