He said: “We thank God Almighty for the Supreme Court victory. Any government that does not carry the youths along will fail. When you as a governor carry youths along, things will move forward.”

Chief Okorie also said that the Governor has invested so much in the youths because he believes the success of Abia state lies in the youths.

“We thank Governor Okezie Ikpeazu for starting the Aba shoe industry. He has taken over 120 youths abroad to learn internationally, standard ways of shoe making so that Aba shoes can compete with any made shoe in the world,” he added.

Recall that the Supreme Court, on May 12, declined to sack Governor Okezie Ikpeazu from office over alleged tax infractions.

The apex court dismissed appeals that were lodged by two contenders for the governorship seat, Mr. Sampson Ogah and Sir Friday Nwosu, as lacking in merit.

Chief Uche Ogah who took Governor Okezie to Court over the 2015 governorship election later accepted the verdict of the Supreme Court and congratulated the Governor on his victory.

Recall also that the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in the state, Mr. Alex Otti who came second in the election had equally applied to be joined as an interested party in the legal action.

But while dismissing the appeals, the apex court described Otti as a meddlesome interloper in the matter.

Reacting after the Supreme Court’s victory, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu said the victory was for the unity and a unified entity called Abia, adding that he dedicated it to the people of Abia State.

Thanking God for the victory, he also called those who contended the matter with him to sheathe their swords and join hands to build a better Abia State.

The statement on Wednesday signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on New Media, Abdurrahman Bundi read: “The Borno State Governor’s media unit‘s attention has been drawn to rumours circulating that the son of the Borno State Governor has been arrested for the alleged murder of some Indian citizen.

This misinformation was published in an online blog, Nairaland, titled “Son of Borno State Governor Murders Someone In India—Politics.” The blog claimed that the Governor also travelled to India, attempting to use diplomatic status to resolve the matter.

“It is on record that Governor Babagana Zulum was on a one-month vacation in Saudi Arabia for the 2024 Hajj and later travelled to Egypt to attend the annual ASUWAN forum conference in Cairo.

The Media Unit would like to clarify and set the record straight that Nairaland and other online blogs have mischievously spread defamatory content without any speck of truth.

We hereby warn Nairaland and all those who have spread the false information to pull down this misinformation from its website and platforms within the next 24 hours and offer an unreserved apology to Governor Zulum, his son, and the entire family, or risk legal action. The Governor shall also not hesitate to take legal action against any media outlet that continues to publicise this defamatory information on its platform.

“We would like to inform the public that none of Governor’s Zulum’s son was either arrested or charged with any crime, or involved in any unlawful activities anywhere.

“We urge the public to exercise caution when consuming and sharing information, particularly when it comes from unverified sources and blogs instead of credible media outlets.

“We enjoin all media organisations to engage in responsible journalism of truth and factual verification while recognising the potential harm and psychological trauma the spread of false information might have caused to the Governor’s family.”
