Association of People Living with Sickle Cell Disorder (APLSCD) has expressed dismay over the trending campaign of calumny targeted against its Chairman, Board of Directors, Chief Sylvester Nwaobu-Alor.
Blueprint learnt that some social media users believed to be agents of contenders to Anambra 2017 gubernatorial poll have been spreading rumour that Nwaobu-Alor and the former Governor, Mr. Peter Obi, allegedly took the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial candidate, Oseloka Obaze to swear an oath at Agulu- Lake.
APLSCD, while describing the allegation as unfounded and image smearing propaganda, enthused that Nwobu-Alor as a senior citizen, astute legislator in the old eastern region and elder statesman has never in the history of his life meddled into people political affairs.
The association, which spoke through its National Coordinator, Aisha Eward, urged the internet thugs to channel their propaganda elsewhere as it would not hesitate from charging anyone caught disseminating the libelous material to court to provide them with video clips or photo shots of the claims or face the wrath of law.
Edward was emphatic that Nwaobu-Alor in his characteristic ways of life assisted sicklers to tackle issues of quack doctors contributing to spread of sickle cell anaemia and sudden death of sufferers through unethical practices, as well as providing for their financial and other needs.
