Okon Umana who is APC’s 2015 Governorship candidate in Akwa Ibom, has said that Justice Inyang Okoro’s claim in his letter to
the Chief Justice of Nigeria is  false and its an afterthought and a diversion from the case at hand.

 Daily Trust reported on
Wednesday from his spokesman, Iboro Otongaran, Umana that there was
no meeting between himself and the Judge.

“The meeting Justice Okoro is reporting is fiction.
No such meeting to discuss how to bribe judges took place between him,
Mr Umana Okon Umana and Dr (Pastor) Ebebe Ukpong as alleged” Umana
He added that Justice Okoro should have reported such a meeting if it had taken place.
Umana said ” If we assume, without conceding, that
such a meeting took place, for a man of Justice Okoro’s standing and
knowledge of the law, he ought to have known the legal implications of
such a visit, and should have reported it to appropriate authorities
immediately. He did not do that, but he is only reacting after the
authorities have established a case against him.”
He further stated that ” Justice Okoro’s claim in
his purported letter to the Hon. Chief Justice of Nigeria is therefore
not only false, it is diversionary and an afterthought.
Justice Okoro should address himself to the facts of the case, which is between him and the State, and leave Umana out of it”
