My attention has been drawn to a false statement being shared by supporters of Arthur Obi Okafor SAN, purportedly accusing Paul Usoro SAN or bribing judges as well as accusing Prof Ernest Ojukwu SAN of being a hypocrite and ending up suggesting I have endorsed him for the NBA Presidency.
I did not make the statement and will never make it. Arthur Obi Okafor SAN and his supporters know I will never support or recommend him to any voter.
I advise them to cease and desist from spreading the concocted statement which had been fraudulently credited to me. I reiterate neither wrote nor ever made the statement.
I advise that people should be honest and focused in the electoral campaign. It is very dishonourable for any person to fabricate a statement and attribute it to me or any other person. If AOOSAN campaign group wishes to say it, it should be bold enough to do so. Using my name to spread false statements will NEVER advance their cause.
If you do not cease and desist , I’ll take appropriate steps against you and any other persons who take part in doing so.
Elections are never won through propaganda and falsehood.
Stick to issues and leave me out of your gutter politics.
