The statement reads partly: “My attention has been drawn to the fake news circulating in the social media purporting that the Deputy Governor of Imo State, His Excellency Prof Placid Njoku has resigned.
“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 Imo State Deputy Governor, His Excellency Prof. Placid Njoku enjoys a robust working relationship with his boss, His Excellency, Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma, Executive Governor of Imo State and indeed with every member of the state executive Council, including members of the state legislature.”
