Imo State Deputy Governor, Prof. Placid Njoku Denies Resignation Allegation
The Imo State Deputy Governor, Prof. Placid Njoku has denied reports that he has resigned. Prof. Njoku, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Ozioma Ukwuoma, insisted the reports have no iota of truth.
“While it remains our practice to ignore such baseless stories, the need to put the truth out to concerned Imo citizens has necessitated this rebuttal.
“This story has no iota of truth in it but is a mere figment of the imaginations of those working against the Government and people of Imo state,” the statement read in part.
Prof. Njoku insists he enjoys “a robust working relationship” with the Governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma, members of the state executive Council and the state legislature.
He further enjoined Imo people to disregard such unfounded rumours and continue supporting the peace and development of the State.
