Chairman of Energy Resources Group of Companies, Chief Jide Omokore has denied speculations that he suffered a stroke after meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan.
Speaking to newsmen, Omokore said he had been in Lagos all through the week and wondered where the rumour mill manufactured the stroke story from.
â€œI have been in Lagos all week and you people can see for yourself if I look like someone who suffered a stroke,â€ he said.
He would however not respond to further questions from journalists on his private jets and his businesses in the upstream sector of oil and gas.
Pressed further on the issue, he replied, â€œSpeculations like that have been made in the past and have been found to be untrue.â€
He however said he owed it a duty to the country to increase their volume of business, create jobs for the teeming youths as well as make meaningful contributions to the economy.
