The rumour that Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has been seriously afflicted with stroke has been dismissed by Declan Emelumba, the State commissioner for information.

Emelumba described the rumors as “unfounded, wicked and mindless fabrication.”

He said that such recorded voice message making the rounds in the social media, claiming that governor Uzodimma is down with stroke and has been rushed to India is a fabrication.

Reacting to the voice message in Owerri Wednesday, Emelumba, in a statement assured the people that Uzodinma “is not only hale and hearty but has been energetically attending to all his scheduled activities in the nation’s capital, Abuja.”

According to him, Uzodinma is not afflicted with any challenge that would have led to a stroke.

“His Excellency attended a meeting with the President alongside other APC governors Tuesday morning. As I speak, he has entered another Party meeting with other stakeholders ahead of APC’s convention. So I don’t really know what those concocting this rumour want to achieve,” Emelumba said.

The Commissioner warned the purveyors of the rumours to desist forthwith.

According to him, it was clear that those who do not wish the governor well have been fantasizing about a phantom illness saying,  however, that they will continue to be disappointed as Uzodimma is enjoying robust health and attending to state duties.

Emelumba urged the people of the state and indeed Nigerians to disregard “this fabrication from mentally deranged elements seeking attention over nothing.”
