The Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma, has debunked reports that he was making moves to rename the Imo State University (IMSU) after the late Chief of Staff to the President Buhari, Abba Kyari. Uzodinma in a statement described such reports as ‘fake’, adding that it was circulated by people in opposition parties in Imo to create mischief, disaffection and distract his administration.
In the statement as released on Monday by his Chief Press Secretary, Oguwike Nwachuku, Uzodinma said it was sad that some politicians could descend into gutter politics by dragging Kyari’s name into disrepute.
The governor said such reports were the handiwork of disgruntled politicians in the state out to discredit his administration. He said the reports were totally false as neither him nor his media aide had anything to do with them.
The governor said it was regrettable that while everyone was poised to fight coronavirus and make Imo to stand tall, an opposition party was busy plotting how to blackmail the government.
