But in a chat with TheCable, Louis Amoke, a spokesperson to Ugwuanyin, denied the governor’s involvement in the community project.

“We don’t know anything about that project. From what I’m hearing, I think it is the community and not even the local government. You know how people use the governor’s picture randomly. We don’t have a hand in it,” he said.
