A frontline Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Hon Ngozi Ogbu has denied being appointed as Director General of Barr Chukwuma Ekomaru Governorship Campaign Organization.
Ekomaru, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, had last week announced his intention to vie for Imo governorship contest on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Ogbu in a statement sent on this medium whatss up platform said much as he is a friend to the learned Senior Advocate of Nigeria, he respectfully declined the offer for personal reasons.
His statement reads:
The invitation card of Barr Chukwuma Ekomaru (SAN) for his declaration to contest for the Governorship of Imo state wherein I,Hon Ngozi Ogbu,was advertised as the Director General of his campaign organisation refers
Let me make it clear that Barr Ekomaru is my friend and I respect him. I wish him well in his aspiration.
Albeit the truth is that he,Ekomaru, approached me to be the DG of his campaign organisation which I respectfully declined for personal reasons.
It’s therefore a surprise that inspite of this my name appeared on the invitation as DG. Let me therefore make it absolutely clear that to the general public that I am not the Director General of Ekomaru’s campaign organization.
Hon Ngozi Ogbu
