ENUGU – THE family of late civilian Governor of old Anambra State, Chief Christian Onoh, has distanced itself from the views recently expressed by Onoh’s last son, Mr. Josef Onoh against the activities of Governor Sullivan Chime and some of his aides, saying the family was highly impressed by the giant strides so far taken by the Governor to development Enugu state.

In a letter to Governor Chime signed by Ozo Philip Onoh on behalf of the Onoh’s family of Ngwo, the family stated that the comments by the Junior Onoh, who was a former member of Enugu State House of Assembly, did not represent or reflect the views or opinions of the family, as they were his personal views.

The letter dated September 19, 2009 and entitled: “Re-Interview granted by Dr. Joseph Onoh” reads,  “we the Onoh family of Ngwo wish to distance ourselves from the views credited to our son Dr. Josef Onoh as published in the media.

We wish to unequivocally state that the said views do not represent or in any way reflect the views or opinions of the Onoh family, but remain the personal views, if at all, of Josef  Onoh.

“We note with great pride and sense of fulfillment the giant strides taken by you (Chime), our illustrious in-law in the development of our beloved state.  We therefore seek to use this medium to reiterate our unwavering and continued support for your administration,” the letter added.
