Hope Uzodinma Denies That He Was Arrested

Senator Hope Uzodinma has described as false, the news that he was arrested over a $12 million failed contract.

He said the governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha was sponsoring a campaign of calumny against him as a result of his gubernatorial ambition.

In a statement in Abuja which was made available to DAILY POST on Monday, the Director of Media and Special Duties of Uzodinma’s campaign organization, Declan Emelumba, said the story was planted out of “their dare-devil desperation to damage the image of the distinguished Senator before the Imo electorate who are poised to vote for him in 2019”.

The statement wondered, “if there was any arrest is it not the press department of the panel that will issue such a statement to the entire media and not just to punchng.com?”

“Their latest plot is this Calabar dredging contract.”

“However they should know that the company handling the Calabar dredging contract is Calabar Channels Management Company in which Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has 60% equity shares.”

“So if there is anybody to be arrested for anything then it is the Managing Director of NPA and not a minority partner, Niger Global, in which Sen. Uzodinma is a shareholder.”
