Nigeria (Blank NEWS Online) –
Yesterday morning, I got a call from a journalist friend to confirm a story that the Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa slumped in his office and was taken out.
I was shocked at the news and told him to disregard it. I went to the government house quickly to confirm for myself and asked about the governor. I got the answer.
As an investigative wandering soul, I decided to make more enquiries if truly the governor was sick and taken out for treatment. One thing was however certain, Okowa can’t be sick and his Principal Secretary, Hilary Ibegbulem won’t be with him wherever he was taken to.
On Sunday, from 6:30pm to 11:48pm, I was with Hilary from where we went to sit out till we drove to his house where we discussed the USA debate that was to take place by 2am til I left him to my hotel room. Okowa cannot be sick and Hilary will be sitting comfortably in his house.
I was in government house the next day and it was busy as usual. I asked about the governor but he was not on sit. I was surprised when someone sent me a text to confirm if Okowa slumped and I replied in the negative. This morning, Deltans especially the opposition are already spreading the evil news.
Here is the true story, not told me by Hilary but from my own private investigation.
Last week, one of the tiles in the office fell on his leg while he was in the bathroom which injured him a little. Okowa is known to hate drawing sympathy to himself and instead of coming to office on Monday or going to functions with injury, where the loving people of Deltans will be saying “sorry your Excellency”, he decided to treat himself in the house. When did such become an illness or slump?
Okowa is currently in government house Hale and hearty. He cannot go to the office now as the bathroom is under renovation. He’s in governor’s lodge which is less than five minutes walk to his office and treating files.
Why are we this wicked as a people that exaggerate things that are not true? Do we now wish the governor evil when we should be praying for him? Okowa will not and never hide his illness from the people he governs if he was ill. Okowa will not play secrecy with his health.
I will be going to the government house in few hours time and will take pictures of him to show those doubting Thomases.
Recall that Sahara Reporters had alleged that the Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, reportedly slumped over last Wednesday at the government house in Asaba, claiming that the Governor who was billed to attend the World Teachers Day celebration at the cenotaph last Wednesday, slumped over at his office preventing his attendance.
The State Commissioner for Information, Patrick Ukah, and the Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to governor, Charles Aniagwu had since debunked the story claiming it was not true.
