Information reaching Elombah.com says that Anambra State Governor Willie Obiano was disgraced at the Adoration Ground on Friday.
The report says that the governor gave Father Ejike Mbaka 10 million naira but that Mbaka rejected it outrightly.
Mbaka, however, did not state his reasons for the rejection, at least not publicly.
Meanwhile, the Governor Obiano’s camp has refuted the story, saying it is a lie.
Read the statement issued by Obiano’s aide below:
Re: Fr Mbaka Rejects N5m from Obiano… Another Senseless Lie from the Helpless Opposition
… Please pray for the youths spreading such falsehood!
Stories like this deserve no reply, not just because it represents the concoction of enemies of the people but for the fact that it is being circulated by individuals well known to be ethugs specialized in character assassination and rumour mongering.
It’s a known fact that the opposition in Anambra State currently lack ideas and are totally confused owing to Gov Willie Obiano’s laudable achievements which have left them helpless, wondering and wandering, in search of any possible lie to tell against the people’s governor.
I’m not surprised at their trying to dishonour the respected Rev Fr Mbaka because this same opposition using a few misguided youths on the internet have insulted the revered clergy including the Bishops; they have desecrated our traditional institutions abusing respected traditional rulers; also, they have denigrated our honourable stakeholders; all simply because these men of honour concur that Willie is willingly working for the betterment of Ndi Anambra.
Appalling though, is the fact that these ethugs are being sponsored by fellows who are supposed to be leaders of thought but chose to be enemies of progress due to their selfish reasons.
May it be known today that Gov Obiano did not offer or intend to offer N5m to any priest or anyone; and the Governor does not need to do so to receive commendations and blessings being that he has distinguished himself as one of the few governors currently delivering democracy dividends amidst the economic recession.
Please ignore such falsehood. The sponsor, author and those ignorant youths spreading it are part of the few ingrates who prefer to burn down Anambra State if their pockets are not filled with the tax payers money.
