IT'S NOT TRUE THAT OKOROCHA’S AIDE WAS RESCUED AT THIRD MAINLAND BRIDGE ATTEMPTING TO JUMP INTO LAGOON
A phoney news credited to Sahara Reporters Saturday April 1st surfaced into some Whatsapp platforms insinuating that Prince Dr. Henry Okafor had attempted suicide at Third Mainland Bridge purportedly as a result of disappointment for not getting the nod to represent Imo State at NDDC Board. We have waited patiently upto to this time to see if the originators and couriers of this very expensive joke could come out with a rejoinder to disclaim the news and by so doing calm the nerves of gullible audience in line with the demands of the traditions of April foolery.
Having not heard or seen any disclaimer, we are compelled to respond accordingly for in our society lies have a way of becoming truth when left unattended.
In the first instance, Prince Dr Okafor was not anywhere near Lagos State on Saturday April 01, 2017. Secondly, the mere suggestion that Prince Dr. Henry Okafor is disappointed with Imo State Governor for removal of his name as Imo State NDDC nominee is nonsensical and extremely false. If there are two or three persons in Imo State whose love, loyalty and support to Rochas Government is currently 100%, Prince Dr. Henry Okafor is surely one of such persons. Rochas Youth Rescue Movement a very formidable youth body founded by Prince Dr Henry Okafor is currently being well positioned to market all the achievements of Rescue Mission Government of His Excellency which will ensure better outing in 2019.
Prince Dr. Henry Okafor is contented, satisfied and busy with the current assignment graciously given to him by His Excellency, Governor Rochas Okorocha to revamp the once moribund Imo State Housing Corperation.
We are happy to inform you that Prince Dr Okafor as the GM of Imo State Housing Corperation has already recorded tremendous progress in office. Just last week alone, Imo State Housing Corperation under the tireless leadership of Dr. Okafor and on behalf of Imo State Government successfully challenged and got a reverse judgment on an early dubious judgement fraudulently obtained in 2015 by one Chief J. M. A Akalonu at Owerri High Court which awarded him the ownership of land and properties at Umuguma Area XA Housing Estate, Owerri West LGA. If the earlier judgement was not reversed or quashed, there would have been bad business. The customers of Imo State Housing Corperation would have lost over 200 houses and other landed properties they labored to acquire at that location. This would have singularly and definitely brought chaos, pandemonium, setbacks and attendant loss of enormous revenue to Imo State Government.
The rain that beats the eagle, actually bathes the eagle. Prince Dr Henry Okafor will remain focus and will not calve-in or be distracted by cheap blackmail and traducement from enemies of progress.
