Uduaghan’s aide dismisses report on live after office

One of the aides to the former Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan has dismissed the recent report on live after office, saying there is no truth in the said publication, reports ITRealms.

The former Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Sunny Ogefere, disagreed with the report in the Sunday Leadership of August 30, 2015, which he described as having “crossed the boundaries of mischief.”

According to him, the story on "Lives of former governors after office," the segment on Dr. Uduaghan was a classic case of armchair journalism embellished with fictitious quotes with persons the author of the story never spoke with.

“Having served the people of Delta State meritoriously, it is no rocket science to know that Dr. Uduaghan will take a well deserved rest having not had a vacation during his time as Governor. But the author stretched his imagination to a bizarre level by concocting events and developments,” Ogefere said.

Lamenting, however, that at no time did anybody from Leadership newspapers call him on phone or speak to him directly as the then chief press secretary to the former governor. 
“Secondly, the mischievous allusion to a bid to sell the Master Care schools to the government of Delta State exists only in the mind of the author of the story,” he said.

Ogefere insisted that there is absolutely no desire to sell the school now or in the future neither was any contact made with private individuals or officials of government on such a move. As there is no agreement anywhere for the sale of the school, the talk of ‘revoking’ the ‘sale’ is a product of the writer's mischievous game plan. So why would Dr. Uduaghan's wife go to court?

“Let it be stated that at no time was the Mastercare International School, owned by a foundation being run by the wife of the Ex-Governor, sold to or negotiated with the Delta State Government. Therefore, the phantom running battle between Dr. Uduaghan and his successor, Governor Okowa over an alleged ‘refusal to approve payment ‘, cannot arise,” Ogefere decried.

He pointed out that Dr. Uduaghan is not in any ‘running battle’ with his successor, His Excellency, Dr. Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa. Of course, some people may have tried to create one using hirelings as the author of the story under reference, but as is always the case, any venture founded on satanic motives will collapse.

“His legacies of achievements will continue to speak for him and continue to endear him to the people. As any other citizen, Dr. Uduaghan is entitled to embark on any legitimate venture after his vacation,” Ogefere disclosed, warning media practitioners to remain professional in exercising their responsibilities to uphold thier honours.
