By Celestine Okeh, Abakaliki

Ebonyi State Commissioner for information and orientation, Barr. Uchenna Orji, have debunked Newspaper report alleging that Governor David Umahi  submitted only Senatorial nomination and expression of interest forms as against the presidential.

Orji, in his response to the publications on Sun and New Telegraph Newspapers, affirmed that Governor Umahi' only submitted presidential expression of interest and nomination forms. He avered  that Gov Umah'is Presidential aspiration is unwavering, and that the author of the publication is only out to demean the personality of the Governor.

Orji's statement reads;
"The attention of Ebonyi State Government has been drawn to a misrepresentation of facts  contained in a newspaper  report credited to one freelancer, Johnchuks Onuanyim and  publshed in  Sun and New Telegraph Newspapers of Sunday,15th May 2022 among other media platforms, and which gives false impression that His Excellency, Engr. Chief David Nweze Umahi FNSE FNATE, Governor of Ebonyi State is one of the Presidential aspirants who submitted forms for Senatorial ticket.

"For the records, His Excellency, Engr Chief David Nweze Umahi FNSE FNATE submitted  nomination forms  for the Presidential ticket only and not for any other ticket whatsoever. His Presidential ambition is therefore unwavering.

"The newspaper  report is distorted and  lacks authenticity and therefore falls short of the slightest credibility as it is aimed at demeaning  the personality of the Governor of Ebonyi State.

"Members of the public are enjoined to discountenance this untoward  publication as an orchestration of political desperadoes who feel threatened by the  acceptable performance credentials of Governor Umahi  and the rising popularity of his Presidential ambition which is deeply rooted on evidential performance trackrecords, equity and social justice.

"We thank  all compatriots who have stood with our dear Governor  in his Presidential aspiration and who are committed to his cause of Nation Building  Your prayers mean a lot for him".
