Okorocha in several tweets denied confirming the ‘falsehood’ and deplored the ‘journalism’ that appended his name to it.
“This is very absurd as I did not speak to anyone to confirm this news. This kind of journalism is totally unacceptable. We must strive to do better”, Okorocha wrote.
“I am utterly shocked that a platform like @TheNationNews would go to extent of putting my name behind such falsehood in the bid to break news.
“Let me reiterate that I didn’t speak to journalists regarding the news making rounds about the passing of Senator Ben Uwajumogu”, he added.
I demand that @TheNationNews take down this news piece as it is false and completely misleading.
One would expect better from such a platform.
