Gov. Obiano, wife denies being infected with COVID-19

Published

on

Anambra State governor, Chief Willie Obiano, his Chief of Staff, Chief Primus Odili and his wife are not infected with coronavirus as being speculated on social media.

The social media post linking the trio to COVID -19 infection has been described as “mischief and blackmail” taken too far by enemies of progress.

In a statement Thursday in Awka, by the media aide to Odili, Mr Juventus Okoli, which was made available to newsmen, said there was no atom of truth in the coronavirus scare in Anambra government house

“This is certainly the season of trash and cheap blackmail against perceived opponents, with the majority of them not worthy of any response.

“However, the recent viral post that there has been a coronavirus scare in government house is not only infantile, but the height of mischief, obviously driven by envy and jealousy.

“For the records, there’s no such scare in government house; least of all, its being triggered by the wife of the COS.

“The Governor is 100% fine and going about his administrative duties deligently while observing the world recommended wearing of face mask, sanitizing and social distancing

“The post is therefore part of the evil machinations of those, who, for reasons best known to them, are envious and jealous of the governor and some of his aides like the young man, Primus Odili, his track records and his wife, whose only offense is that she visits her husband from time to time from America.

“The field is open and wide enough for anyone to play his game without overlapping into another’s part of the pitch.

“Rather than spite those who worked hard and legitimately to attain their current positions, those behind such attacks should equally work hard to succeed in life. You don’t grow by pulling others down,” Okoli said.
