The Chairman of Coscharis Group of Company, Dr. Cosmas Maduka, has cleared the air about an alleged rift between him and the senator representing Anambra South senatorial zone, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah.

There had been a video circulating on the internet, with Maduka accusing Ubah of being indebted to him and that Ubah was trying to avoid payment.

But during the burial of the mother of a former member of Anambra State House of Assembly, Hon Benchuks Nwosu in Nnewi at the weekend, Maduka who spoke to journalists on the alleged rift between them blamed mischief makers for digging up and circulating an old video.

He said: “This is something that happened more than 11 to 12 years ago. I have gotten calls from the US and other parts of the world about people asking me what was happening between me and my brother Ifeanyi as if it was something that happened just yesterday.

“We have been friends and brothers, we have put that behind us, and we speak every day. He has asked me for favours and I have asked him for favours too. Just yesterday I called him and asked him for something which he just did for me today. 

“He was at my wife’s funeral and he ate in my place and I eat in his place,” Maduka said.

Ubah who was also at the funeral told journalists that: “It is good that Maduka himself has cleared the air by himself. People should learn to respect our privacy and mind their businesses. People should stop looking for trouble where there is none.

“Let us get ourselves engaged with activities that will better the lives of people and make our dear country a better place instead of dwelling in the past and distracting ourselves with issues that do not exist.”

Ubah had accused his political detractors of digging up an old video to cause distraction in the polity.

The senator recently declared his intention to run for the governorship of Anambra State to unseat Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, the incumbent governor, who would be seeking re-election.
