His words:

“The governor travelled with a diplomatic passport. So, the story is rubbish. It’s nonsensical and foolish to think that somebody with a diplomatic passport can be stopped from returning to his country for any reason by airport authorities.
“We know the author of that garbage. He is an aide to a governorship aspirant. He was jobless until he was engaged recently by the aspirant and he wants to impress his paymaster."

Meanwhile, the upcoming November 6 governorship election in Anambra had led to a war of words between the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

Chris Ngige, the minister of labour and employment, took a swipe at the sitting governor, Willie Obiano, describing him as an “epicurean and governor-do-nothing.”

Ngige claimed that the governor's idleness is the primary reason Obiano takes and posts anyhow pictures on the internet.
