All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Senatorial Candidate for Anambra Central, Prof. Dora Akunyili, has vehemently denied the allegation by a phantom “Citizen Reporter” and published by 247Ureports.com.
Akunyili described the report entitled “Prof Dora Akunyili’s N50M Bribe To The Appeal Court” as the product of a sick mind.
Responding on behalf of her boss, Mr. Isaac Umunna, Special Assistant on Media to Prof. Akunyili, described the report as “unprofessional and borne out of an ulterior motive.” He faulted the claim by 247Ureports that neither he nor Akunyili responded to the text message sent by the Publisher, Mr. Ikenna Ellis-Ezenekwe.
According to Umunna in a reply addressed to Ezenekwe: “For the avoidance of doubt, I replied your sms on behalf of Prof. Akunyili, against whom you have for long waged a relentless and unjustified war for reasons best known to you, but you deliberately refused to reflect our response.
“This is a vexatious and ridiculous allegation by those afraid of losing the case and desperate to discredit Nigeria’s Judiciary. It’s a figment of the imagination of a sick mind. Dora doesn’t have that kind of money. Even if she does, she wouldn’t use it to bribe anybody. It is highly regrettable and unfortunate that Dora’s opponents have resorted to cheap blackmail.’ ”
