In a statement, Dr. Osita mgbeahurike, the National President of the group alleged that one of the Senatorial candidate, for the Okigwe Senate Seat election, has hired the services of an ex convict called Samuelson Iwuoha, to smear the Image of his opponents by insulting, casting aspersions on them and going into town with pamphlets and flyers designed to discredit and misrepresent them before the general public.
‘’This is sequel to the adoption of Lunatic Iwuoha’s 3 million naira proposal, to engage the opponents of the Senatorial candidate, in a character assassination war and propaganda, as well as, the nocturnal meetings they have been holding; first, at Ehime Mbano, chaired by a serving senator in the state and secondly, at Okigwe, in a meeting chaired by a senatorial candidate.
‘’It is regrettable and shameful that an Okigwe son who is seeking to be elected into the Nigerian Senate or a serving Senator will out of desperation for power toe the line of Samuelson Iwuoha or even associate with criminality, drug peddling, cultism, unethical behaviors, personality brigandage and character assassination which Ikenna Samuelson Iwuoha represents.
‘’The Convergence of Okigwe Youths for Human Rights and Good Governance (COYHRGG), in Okigwe, therefore wishes to inform members of the public to be alert on the antics of this disgruntled and desperate politicians and be wary of being deceived.
‘’ we urge Senatorial candidates of various political parties in Okigwe zone to exhibit high level of morality and good conduct in the pursuit for Okigwe senate seat and should not be distracted by disoriented actions of frustrated individuals.
‘’the general public is, hereby, advised to ignore the propaganda and spurious allegations of desperate individuals who has since failed to understand that the era of propaganda is long gone’’, Osita said.
