Speaking in a statement on Saturday, Media Aide to Sir Emeka Offor, Ebuka Onochie Obi, exonerated Sir Emeka Offor, the Chrome Group of Companies as well as Sir Emeka Offor Foundation while describing the allegation as the handiwork of mischief makers who were hell bent on bring him to disrepute.
Obi noted that it was a common knowledge that Sir Emeka Offor seldom grants interviews or engages in media/press statements except when issues dealing with the activities of his charitable and non-governmental Foundation – Sir Emeka Offor Foundation (SEOF) were involved.
“However, it has become necessary in the present circumstances to state categorically that there is absolutely no truth in these allegations made and perpetuated by uninformed mischief makers whose only desire is to malign and bring Sir Dr. Emeka to disrepute.
“For the records, Sir Emeka Offor Foundation has been engaged in helping people in need become independent and self-sufficient. Since the onset of the global pandemic which has laid waste the financial aspirations of individuals, organisations and countries, SEOF has made significant and unparalleled interventions in the health and educational sectors of our economy.”
