Biafra: Ex-Senate President reacts to comment on IPOB, Say's Blessing Anyim not His daughter

Former Senate President, Anyim Pius Anyim has denied link with US-based Nigerian actress, Blessing Anyim, who spoke about ongoing Biafra agitations in Nigeria.
The actress was quoted as saying; “Celebrities have the biggest platform to persuade or grab the attention of people. The roles celebrities can play to ensure the stability of the country cannot be overemphasised.
“Instead of keeping mute, they should use their platforms to influence and persuade the Nigerian society at large for peace stability.”
“In this part of the world, people don’t respect the democratic system of governance the way they are meant to respect it.
“Of course you have the right to vote the candidates who best represent your ideas and beliefs, so when situations like this present themselves we have leaders who can come together and think of a solution to avoid the killing of innocent people.”
In his reaction, the former senate president said the actress is not his child.
Pius said, “My attention has been drawn to a publication credited to one “Blessing Anyim Pius Anyim’s daughter”. I want to use this opportunity to clarify the public 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 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.”
