A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and close associate and confidant of Distinguished Senator Ifeanyi Araraume, Hon Jerry Ukachukwu Nwokoro, a successful businessman, MD/CEO of UBEST FOUNDATION has taken a swipe on a local tabloid based in Owerri the lmo state capital, Announcer Express Newspaper for its inciting publication on the Appeal court judgment affirming the suspension of Adams Oshimhole as APC National Chairman.
The Owerri based Newspaper had on its 19th June 2020 Edition, published that members of Araraume and Rochas Okorocha camp were thrown into wild jubilation upon hearing that appeal court had affirmed the suspension of Adams Oshimhole as a member and National Chairman of APC.
Irked by the scathing remarks which he said is not only mischievous but misleading and unguarded, Hon Jerry Ukachukw Nwokoro who is a prominent member of senator Araraumes Destiny Organisation stated thus, “I am a strong member of destiny Organisation and at no time, did the organization as a group or any individual celebrate the ouster of Adams Oshimhole by the Appeal Court.” he enthused.
Instead, he expressed discomfort that the APC crisis has continued to fester beyond the skirmishes in Edo state. He, therefore, condemned the Announcer Express Publication as unfortunate, unfounded, frivolous, a lie from the pit of hell capable of eliciting bad blood among the leaders of the party who is most cases enjoy the confidence, support, and respect of Senator Araraume.
He cautioned and called on newspaper reporters to always cross-check their facts before going to press to avoid a repeat of the extant issue on the ground or their practice labeled as yellow journalism or hack writers.
The Ekwedim Amauzari Isiala Mbano born philanthropist added that there has never been a rift, dispute or misunderstanding between Araraume, Oshimhole, and Governor Hope Uzodinma to warrant such senseless publication or altercation as portrayed by Announcer Express and wondered why the management of the Newspaper or the Editor did not bother to reach out to senator Araraume, any of his supporters or media aide to seek clearance, clarification or reaction to the Appeal Court judgment before going public.
He described as blackmail and in very strong terms such as resort to frivolities for monetary sake by some journalists.
On the yet to be announced Okigwe Senatorial Election, Hon Jerry Nwokoro reiterated his earlier stand that senator Ifeanyi Araraume remains Heads and shoulders taller and above his contemporaries and opponents.
He called on the people of the area to see Araraume as the best bet and sure banker as far as effective representation and purposeful leadership are concerned.
It is against this backdrop that he contended that come what may, Araraume in the eyes of Progressives is and remains the only sure bet if elected to represent lmo North in the senate that will attract elusive dividends to Okigwe zone which for the past 12 years or more has been lacking.
He berated all those who wish to stand on Araraume’s way or pose as a stumbling block to show their scorecards or what concrete contributions/achievements they have been able to bring to Okigwe zone beyond personal and selfish aggrandizement.
He urged our amiable Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma to see those critics of Senator Araraume as political jobbers and enemies of our dear state, who do not mean well and are allergic to his provision of the dividends of democracy to lmolites as the duo of Senator Araraume and himself Governor Uzodinma working together will transform the socio-economic development of our dear lmo state. He prayed God to bless our Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma, Adams Oshimhole, Distinguishes Senator Araraume, and finally lmo state.
