Former Minister of State for Education, Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi, has said blackmailers will pay an unforgettable high price over alleged stripping naked and filming three staff on the suspicion of stealing.
The Media Assistant to Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi, Sylvester Omonigho in a signed statement said, “From all indications, there is a poorly scripted and badly thought-out plan designed to tarnish the good name and hard-earned reputation of Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi in the eyes of the general public by professional blackmailers.
“And, we wish to remind these dark-minded beings that Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi has through dint of hard work and sheer tenacity built this name over these years.
“Every choice a man makes has consequences. Those who have chosen to do the dirty jobs of cowardly and visionless politicians, whose primary goal is to scuttle a long-held vision of selfless service to the good people of Delta State by willfully and maliciously casting aspersion on Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi’s growing popularity and acceptance within the Delta State political space in particular and the country in general, in the vain hope that they can abridge his political ambition by so doing, should be ready to face the full and unmitigated consequences of their ill-advised choices. They will be made to pay an unbearable and unforgettably high prize for their indiscretion.
“It is trite law that the burden of proof rests squarely on whosoever asserts. Those who have mastered the art of blackmailing innocent people, albeit masking their devious enterprises by parading themselves as human rights activists and defenders of the poor, will be told in no uncertain terms that every act of evil deserves the full wrath of the Law without any iota of mercy.
The statement explained, “It is common knowledge today in Delta State, that Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi remains the front runner among the aspirants who have overtly or otherwise made known their desire to lead Delta State come May 29, 2023.
“Expectedly, those who cannot match Olorogun Gbagi wit for wit, grit for grit, determination for determination, courage for courage and vision for vision have latched onto non-existent stories woven in manners that smack of tales by moonlight and gratuitously standing truth on its head just to tar his name with all manners of dirty brushes.
“We won’t advise you to stop. Those whom the gods want to destroy, they first run mad. Continue! But be reminded, it will be too late to cry or repent or ask for mercy when the head is off.
“Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi has been known to be a development minded lover of humanity, a well-known philanthropist, a more than average employer of labour and a respecter of the rights, privileges and dignity of all and sundry and above all, a lover of peace.
“However, any attempt to capitalize on these humane qualities to abuse his person now or any other time and jeopardize his future will be met with what President Donald Trump of the United States called “Fire and Fury” Enough said!”
