2023: I didn’t criticise Peter Obi’s presidential ambition – Ihedioha

FORMER Governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha, has denied report that he granted an interview with some journalists, where he disparaged the aspiration of the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, noting it as baseless and fake news.

In a statement issued, yesterday, by Ihedioha’s Media aide, Chibuike Onyeukwu, the former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, attributed the report as the handiwork of some political opponents.

The statement said: “This is one of the many orchestrated efforts by political opponents of Ihedioha and their collaborators, who are afraid of squaring up against him in the coming elections.

“It is noteworthy that Ihedioha did not grant any interview in Abuja or elsewhere as claimed.

“He is known to acquit himself in the most civil, decent and respectful manner and, therefore, could not have employed such uncouth words”.
