Gulak wasn’t my guest – Uzodinma rebukes Fani-Kayode over assassination remark

Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has said the late Ahmed Gulak, former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan was not his guest.

Rebuking Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister over his remark on Gulak’s assassination, Uzodinma said the deceased was in the state for constitution review and not as his guest.

DAILY POST recalls that some gunmen had on Sunday killed Gulak while on his way to the airport in Owerri, the state capital.

Reacting, Fani-Kayode had questioned why Uzodinma failed to provide adequate security for Gulak while in the state.

However, the governor said the former minister was trying to reap from the unfortunate incident.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Oguwike Nwachuku, Uzodinma questioned Fani-Kayode’s character.

The statement reads: “It seems the former Aviation Minister wants to make capital of the unfortunate gruesome murder of Alhaji Gulak who was killed on Sunday morning around Ngor Okpala on his way to the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport.

“But Fani-Kayode in his characteristic manner of always trying to reap from ugly situations has taken to his Facebook wall to make insinuations that suggest he does not want those behind Gulak’s assassination unveiled.

“Ordinarily one would not have bothered responding to the balderdash Fani-Kayode posted on his Facebook wall because Nigerians know the character that is him, but for the unsuspecting members of the public who may not know the reason behind his comments.

“Explanations had been offered that Gulak was not Governor Uzodimma’s guest as of the time he was killed in Imo, but had come to the State on the invitation of the organisers of the 1999 Constitution Review Committee of the Senate as a Consultant.”
