Rumors of a rift between Charly Boy and Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state have been circulating in the media, with the rift reportedly capitulating in Charly Boy snatching the microphone from Okorocha at Charly Boy’s fathers burial.
Charly Boy has however come out to deny all stories of a misunderstanding between himself and Okorocha.
His statement reads,
This is to register my utmost pleasure and appreciation to all Nigerians for the remarkable show of love to me and my family in giving my father, Hon. Justice Chukwudifu Akunne Oputa, a most befitting burial.
I am very happy and indeed, very grateful to all.
My special gratitude goes to the Federal Government and President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, Imo State Government and Governor Rochas Okorocha, Rivers State Government and Governor Rotimi Amaechi, for their immeasurable support and participation.
May I use this medium to clear the air concerning news making the rounds. There is no ill feeling between me and His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha (SAM). I did not snatch microphone from him, no such thing happened at all.
I do not put out as portrayed by these news reports; I believe I am a very cultured individual, not one to rubbish a good gesture.
Once again, thank you all Nigerians.
Charles Emeka Oputa (CharlyBoy)
