The Senator representing Anambra South, Ifeanyi Ubah, has faulted reports that he donated a whopping N1 billion, to the funds geared towards fighting against the coronavirus pandemic by the Federal Government.
Ubah said that there is no truth in the claims, which he described as mischievous.
The Oil Magnate stated: “The story is not only unfounded, but very mischievous, and should be disregarded, as it is a dubious attempt to play on the collective intelligence of the general public.”
According to him, rather than what the reports claimed, he is actually working to raise funds to help his Constituents and his State, Anambra, to overcome the threat of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Senator Ubah noted that rather than donate N1 billion to the Federal Government, he is working to protect his State and his Constituents in Anambra South.
Ubah added: “For the records, the purpose of clarity, I wish to disassociate myself from the purported donation, and categorically state that at no point did I make N1 billion donation under any guise, whether cash, medical equipment, or relief materials, to the Federal Government.
“Rather, in my bid to complement the State Government’s efforts in combating the Covid-19 pandemic, I have been championing the course of mobilising well-meaning Anambrarians, to donate money to build an Isolation Centre, and 2 Surge Centres across the three Senatorial Districts in Anambra.
“As the Senator representing Anambra South in the National Assembly, my primary responsibility is distilled to the safety and well being of Anambra South and Anambrarians in general.”
