PDP spreading fake news in Ebonyi says Orji
Ebonyi State Commissioner for Information and Orientation Orji Uchenna Orji has chided the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for peddling falsehood to dent the image of Governor Davd Umani.
He said the party fabricated lies against the governor and his wife in a bid to portray them in bad light.
Orji, a lawyer, said in a statement that no no did find the wife of the governor threatened not to support her husband on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He said: “The attention of Ebonyi State Ministry of Information and State Orientation has been drawn to a vicious, mendacious and faceless post captioned: “I will not vote my husband in APC,” falsely credited to Her Excellency, wife of the Governor of Ebonyi State, and made to trend in social media by political jobbers deployed by the remnants of the drowned People’s Democratic Party, PDP in the State.
“These elements have also resorted to writing helplessly and derogatorily about the doyen of gender mainstreaming, Mrs. Rachel Ogonna Umahi (Ogoo Nwanyi), wife of the governor.
“While we take exception to this cheap and disrespectful blackmail, we make bold to state that the wife of our governor is a proud card carrying member of All Progressives Congress, with registration number, EB/BZR/11/04202.
“She is a great pillar of support to our Divine Mandate Administration and champion of mobilization for the cause of APC in the state.”
