Okonkwo, who is running under the All Progressives Congress (APC) platform, had declared that the Igbos should support President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term as there is no better alternative. He added that in turn, Buhari will support a candidate from the South east in 2023.
Omokri had said, sharing a photo of Okonkwo all smiles with Jonathan:
This is Kenneth Okonkwo when he was revealing to @GEJonathan a similar thing he is currently disclosing to President @MBuhari. He will likewise say a similar thing to the following tenant of that office. That is the thing that he is great at. He knows the proper behavior steadfast without BEING faithful!
Reacting to the comment, Okonkwo wrote on Instagram, his own version of the events of the said day the photo was taken:
My attention has been drawn to a writeup by one Reno Omokri, under this picture, who wrote that “Kenneth Okonkwo acts loyal without being loyal”. I learnt also that she/he worked with His Excellency, President Goodluck Jonathan.
Let me clarify his/her ignorance.
I was welcomed by work on a May Day to convey a discourse on work matters at hawks square. In fact I rode on a similar vehicle with Comrade Peter Esele, the TUC pioneer, to the setting.
After the conveyance of my discourse, President Jonathan was impressed to the point that he requested that his subtle elements motivate me to welcome him in the state box. I submissively did. It’s on record that all through his administration, I didn’t ask for any arrangement to see him, notwithstanding when he disclosed to me how he valued my individual and my modest accomplishments in Nollywood.
I never worked for him and I have never had any private discourses with President Jonathan. He is alive and this can be affirmed. So the issue of steadfastness does not emerge.
One marvels what this busybody wants to achieve by writing this. It is this shameless, psychophantic attitude of such people like Reno Omokri, of writing falsehood, that is promoting the culture of fake news on the internet. Shame!!
