Video Showing David Umahi Ordered Soldiers To Flog Civil Servants Doctored – APC
By Emeka Nwonu
Attention of the All Progressives Congress, APC Ezza North Local Government Area has been drawn to a doctored video trending on social media and published in some national dailies where the Executive Governor of Ebonyi State, Engineer Chief David Nweze Umahi has been allegedly accused of ordering some workers in the President Muhammadu Buhari’s International Airport, Onueke be flogged for coming late to work by 7.30am.
We have watched the video and come with the conclusion that it is a doctored video which emanated from the enemies of the state to oxidise the image of the governor whose popularity in Nigeria has intimidatingly spread like harmattan wildfire.
A close and critical watch of the video does not in any case disaffirm its concoctive nature, being brandished from the figments of imagination of the opposition elements who share it (the video).
The video has no perceived or distinct visualisation while the audio is so poor that no one can explain exactly what happened therein, except the incomprehensible voices of the doctors.
The way people come up with lies in the name of politics is highly disgusting and we as a party frown at it.
Though, some people especially the members of the opposition have taken advantage of the time we are as we approach general elections to peddle different kinds of lies, believing that to be their only way of achieving cheap popularity, but we never believed that they could descend so low with such petty falsehood.
Governor David Umahi has shown much love to Ebonyi people in different capacities, and can never therefore, order the citizens he loves much be flogged.
Looking at the conflicting reports on social media, punch newspaper and Sahara Reporters, one must be skeptical about the authenticity of the information.
In the first place, everyone knows that official time for work in Nigeria Civil Service System is 8am, while work at sites where contractors work has no official time. It is very incredible that a worker in such a site could be flogged for being late to work by 7.30am.
We therefore, ask the general public to discountenance the doctored video and treat the scanty information it portrays as falsehood.
