Former Senate President, Anyim Pius Anyim has denied link with the United State-based Nigerian actress, Blessing Anyim, who spoke about the on-going Biafra agitations in Nigeria.
Senator Anyim, in a statement, said he never had any child by that name, and that all his children are based in Nigeria. His full statement below:
“My attention has been drawn to a publication credited to one “Blessing, Anyim Pius Anyim’s daughter” in an online platform.
I want to use this opportunity to clarify the following:
That none of my children lives or had ever lived outside Nigeria. That I have no daughter that is an actress. My only daughter just finished her first degree examination in Nigeria last month and so is yet to undergo her National Youth Service talk less of engaging in any carrier.
That as at today, I am the only politician in my house and so none of my children or even my wife has any political interest or any opinion on national issues.
May I state that the statement though may not be hurtful but is not from anybody related to me in anyway and as a matter of fact nobody in my family knows the actress under reference.
It is my wish that our mass communicators should always verify their facts.”
