I got an invitation from one Obinna Don Norman inviting me for the launching his book titled “Raped and Enslaved – Abia’s Era of Kleptocracy” slated for December 8, 2018.
In his mail to me via Facebook, a cover letter of the invitation reads, “Mr Onwumere, good afternoon. This is ur IV for my book presentation. I mentioned u and the role u played in my book. It will be nice that i also send u invitation. Thanks”. He attached the invitation in a Microsoft word detailing the title of the book, date of the launching, venue and sundry.
It would behoove me to let the general public and especially, the Abia State Government, to note that I never played any role in the said book and did not know about the book before now.
However, as a writer, I had lent my opinions to formulate the Government of Abia State in the past through published articles and this should not in any way be misconstrued or attributed to mean supporting anybody or group. My articles were based on clear indications of the axiom that public opinion shapes any given government.
I hereby ask Abia State Government and general public to disapprove of, frown on, take a dim view of, be against, not believe in, find unacceptable, think wrong (of) any ROLE the said Obi Don Norman may dish out to the public that I played in his book, except in a case where he referenced my published articles in the cause of research.
