Prof. Placid Njoku: A Deputy Governor With No Political Value

By Engr. Chris Amadi  +2348109558218 Senator Hope Uzodinma had gone to school to pick Prof. Placid Njoku as a running mate in the 2019 gubernatorial election, Imo State. As a principal partner in the election, political players and observers had expected Prof. Njoku to lead the party, or galvanise it, or contribute his own quota to its victory.

Infact, the reverse was just to be. On the election day proper, Prof. Njoku was to be roundly defeated by the People's Democratic Party (PDP) in his Ikeduru LGA beginning with his own polling booth.

The attention of the Honourable Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice Imo State has been drawn to the malicious, procured and orchestrated news item being circulated by media outfits suggesting that the Honourable Attorney General of Imo State is subverting Justice in a case of child trafficking for which he has been summoned by a Magistrate Court for explanation.

Igboayaka of the acclaimed Ohaneze Youth Council, who made the erroneous and unfounded allegations against the Chief Law officer of Imo State. While the Attorney General is not surprised over the continued evil orchestration against his person by opposition elements with parochial intent to serve, he is however surprised that responsible media establishments could go to town with such false and malicious news without first seeking clarification from the office of the Attorney General. It is important to note that the office of
