•PFN Vice President, Bishop Simeon Okah.

The Vice President of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Bishop Simeon Okah, has denounced the news ascribed to him calling on the Federal Government to prosecute Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi, for corruption.

In a reaction signed by his media assistant Jude Okechukwu and made available to journalists in Warri on Monday, the clergyman denied labelling Amaechi as a corrupt man who should be prosecuted.

He said: “It is not my place to label anyone as corrupt or otherwise, it is the court that should do that. And in the case under reference, I did not refer to Chibuike Amaechi as corrupt; I was obviously misunderstood and misinterpreted by media people who listened to me. It’s unfortunate.

“How can I possibly declare former Governor Amaechi corrupt and should be prosecuted? How can I make such declaration even if his political opponents have been alluding to such? Is that enough for me to dabble in and take a stand based on hearsay? I want to state categorically that I never made such statement to any audience or group of persons.”
