Spare my house -Chuks Osuji pleads with Owelle

A popular public relations consultant and opinion analyst, Dr. Chuks Osuji, has appealed to Gov Rochas Okorocha of Imo State to spare his building which has been marked for demolition on Mbaise Road, Owerri.
In a fresh statement in Owerri, Dr. Osuji clarified what he wanted and castigated a  section of the press that sensationalized his earlier statement. The fresh statement read:
My attention has been drawn to my press statement published last week in some local tabloids and national papers, appealing to His Excellency Owelle Rochas Okorocha, the Executive Governor of Imo State, to spare my building at No. 54 Mbaise Road/Amaram Street Owerri which has been marked to be demolished as part of the development plan of the Government to the effect that some section of the press has presented my plead objectively as I intended it. Some however sensationalized it, presenting it as if it is a blackmail to the Government or to give it political slanting.
I want to make it abundantly and expressly clear here that;
My entire intention is to appeal to His Excellency to spare my building because touching or demolishing it will leave me with no new life to live on.
It is where I have retired to after serving my country meritoriously to await the ultimate, because now that I am advanced in age, blind, sick and frail, I have no life to begin afresh.
I built this house 22 years ago according to the approved plan by OCDA.
I am not a politician, but a functioning Public Relations and Communications Professional. To give my appeal and plead to the Governor, any political interpretation does not and cannot be consistent with my intention. Absolutely no. As experienced and understanding of the workings of Government, I cannot be on the way to obstruct Government’s development plan. I only plead that my case is a special case and should be given special Governor’s consideration as he is endowned with humanitarian and philanthropic attributes.
Finally, I plead to any section of the press that want to make political mileage out of this issue should count me out. That is not and cannot be my intention and objective. And I commend those sections of the press who have shown great understanding to my predicament.
