Mr. David Umahi, the Ebonyi state governor has said at no time that he rejected serving as the South east campaign coordinator of the Peoples Democratic Party for its presidential candidate Mr. Atiku Abubakar.
David made the clarification in a chat with newsmen in Abakaliki at the government house.
Mr. Emmanuel Onwe, the state commissioner of information said at no time did his boss rejected the appointment as was reported in social media.
Those behind the news are mischief makers, he added.
The governor also said he has no plan to campaign for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Those who are promoting the rumour that governor Umahi wants to distribute bags of rice carrying pictures of Buhari the country president and the APC candidate for the 2019 presidential election must avoid such mischief, he cautions.
Media report that Umahi is working against his party the PDP, is wicked and malicious, Onwe said.
The governor considers appointment as the South East Coordinator of Atiku/Obi Campaign Organization as huge honour and would perform in that capacity with great enthusiasm and dedication.
“The governor does not know any other Presidential Candidate except that of his party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, Mr. Peter Obi,” Onwe disclosed.
