It’s no longer news that Charly Boy a.k.a Area FADA denied Rochas Okorocha, the Imo State Governor from making any speech at the funeral mass of his late father, Justice Oputa. However, it may interest you that Charly Boy has issued a public statement on the reported rancour between him and Gov. Rochas.
Below is the excerpt from Charly Boy’s press statement
This is to register my utmost pleasure and appreciation to all Nigerians for the remarkable show of love to me and my family in giving my father, Hon. Justice Chukwudifu Akunne Oputa, a most befitting burial. I am very happy and indeed, very grateful to all.
My special gratitude goes to the Federal Government and President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, Imo State Government and Governor Rochas Okorocha, Rivers State Government and Governor Rotimi Amaechi, for their immeasurable support and participation.
May I use this medium to clear the air concerning news making the rounds. There is no ill feeling between me and His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha (SAM). I did not snatch microphone from him, no such thing happened at all.
I do not put out as portrayed by these news reports; I believe I am a very cultured individual, not one to rubbish a good gesture.
Once again, thank you all Nigerians.
Charles Emeka Oputa (CharlyBoy)
