Fred Majemite Didn’t Collect N500 Million From Okowa – Media Aide

The Head, Media & Public Com­munication, Fred Majemite Po­litical Vanguard, Ovie Edomi has debunked the rumour that Delta State governorship as­pirant, under the flagship of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olo­rogun Barrister Fred Majemite received the sum of N500million from the state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa to contest the election.

His words: “Silence is golden but certainly not all the time. It is on this strength, that I, on behalf of Olorogun Barrister Fred Majemite and members of the Fred Majemite Political Van­guard wish to inform the general public especially Deltans that the speculation making the rounds that Olorogun Barrister Fred Majemite was given N500million by the Delta State Governor, His Excellency, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa or any official of the Del­ta State Government is not true.”

“At no time in about a year that Olorogun Barrister Fred Majemite went round Delta State doing one on one consul­tation with elders and leaders of the Party across the three Senatorial Districts up till the peak of the PDP Primaries, did Olorogun Barrister Fred Ma­jemite receive a dime from the Delta State Governor or the Delta State Government or any person in Government.”

“This clarification has there­fore become necessary to refute the rumour that is spreading like wildfire that Olorogun Barrister Fred Majemite collected money from the Delta State Governor to contest the Delta State Governor­ship in order to split Urhobo and nay Delta Central votes.”

Edomi said Majemite had enough revenue to fund the proj­ect before he made up his mind to contest.

“The rumour making the rounds is, therefore, the evil imaginations of those who never believed that Olorogun Barrister Fred Majemite has the financial strength to persecute the Gover­norship project from the scratch to the end. Infact, many had pre­dicted that he was going to with­draw or step aside midway but to their amazement, Olorogun Barrister Fred Majemite had one of the best campaign offices in Asaba and ran one of the best-or­ganised campaign organisations all through.”

“As a man of the people, a grassroots politician with wide contacts and a lawyer of repute, Olorogun Barrister Fred Ma­jemite got few high net worth individuals and corporate or­ganisations to support his gover­norship aspiration, but none of those who supported Olorogun Barrister Fred Okiemute Ma­jemite work for the Delta State Government,” he said.
