Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, has denied having a quarrel with Senator Bola Tinubu, saying the envisaged rift only exists in the imaginations of those who have chosen the path of dishonour.
The Governor, who was reacting to a report published in a social media on Sunday, claiming that he accused Senator Tinubu and other APC members of being responsible for the death of the APC governorship candidate in Kogi State, Prince Abubakar Audu, described such claim as “ungodly blackmail.”
The governor said in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuameodo, that the envisaged rift between Senator Tinubu and himself “only exists in the imaginations of those who have chosen the path of dishonor, because only dishonourable people could have authored such an inglorious write-up. Decent people do not do such thing.”
The governor said he never accused the former governor of Lagos State and one of the key pillars of the APC in the country, Senator Tinubu, of being responsible for the death of the APC governorship candidate in Kogi State, Prince Audu.
“The report came up on Sunday evening and, of course, few hours after the news of the death of the Kogi Prince were still being doubted by most Nigerians.
“Those who feel they can drag Governor Okorocha down through cheap blackmail should better be advised to find something meaningful to do, because whoever God has blessed, nobody can curse.
This is scriptural. And that is our joy and consolation.” The governor, however, regrets the sudden death of the APC governorship candidate in Kogi State, Prince Audu, saying that death of the APC gubernatorial candidate came when no one expected it, but God knew why He allowed it to happened few poles to his coming back as governor of that state.”
According to him, the death of Audu should also be a lesson to all of us to appreciate our limitations as human beings. We are all pencils in the hand of the creator.
