Senior Special Adviser to the President of FRN on Prosecution, Chief Okoi Obla has stated it clearly that neither defamatory or slanderous statement can deter or intimidate him from carrying out his duties efficiently.
According to him “A planted media story in a desperate and frenzied manner calculated to impugn his hard earned integrity will not cause him to back down.”
In his exact words “One of such stories planted by matrons and patrons of corruption enterprise is that I collected 1.2 billion from politically exposed former governors. Gosh! The allegation is hollow as it is silly. The Panel has not even taken off and some people are so scared stiff that they plant such spurious and ludicrous rubbish to cripple President Buhari’s anti-corruption efforts.”
What do I need such enormous amount of money for? I am a largely contented man. I also married a humble and God fearing woman who is an accomplished professional in her own right! I have been able through hard work to provide for my family and build a house in my town, Calabar and Abuja from law practice.
I am content. What I crave to offer my people is service! If I craved for stupendous wealth I would not have elected to be a human rights activist and lawyer in 1991 when I finished my National Youth Service Corps! I am ever ready to contend with these agents of lucifer and I have therefore instructed my lawyers to sue The Pilot…. and any media house that allows itself to be used to plant fake stories impugning my integrity! I repeat defamers and slander mercenaries will not intimidate or deter me from carrying out my responsibilities.
I was appointed to do a job and I remain committed to the trust shown in my appointments, my tasks at hand and most importantly my conscience!
