The Delta State Governor media may be tearing apart if the newly appointed overzealous Executive Assistant to Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa is not given a proper line of assignment.
Impeccable information available to this medium is that contrary to the EA claim that he has an academic PhD from a university; Secret Reporters maintains that Mr Fred Latimore’s degree is fake, as he has never seen the four walls of the university to undergo a rigorous doctorate degree session.
Known for throwing big titles of academic qualification behind his name, this medium has uncovered Mr Latimore’s penchant for lying that despite his claim of wearing a revered Doctorate Academic gown to her daughters Primary Six graduation was actually his quack induction into his circle of PhD friends.
Fact findings by Secret Reporters revealed that the PhD gowns are returned as soon as they are rented to graduands by the conferring university but Latimore will be the first in Nigeria history to keep his own gown at home to go for primary school graduation whenever he deems fit, which rightly confirms our report that he’s not a product of a Nigerian or foreign University doctorate holder but given to him by a one Berkely group as a honorary form.
The usually hot blooded communication quack who has no certificate in journalism or communication from any tertiary institution in keeping with the policies of lying to hoodwink Deltans to use the Asaba death trap called Asaba International Airport instead of the safer Benin Airport maintained that there are flights operating from the glorified motor park Airport daily. Our reporter who was there on Saturday from 7am to 6pm filed in a report that not a single flight landed there today, puncturing Latimore’s claim.
One of those who participated in building the tower publicly confirmed that it was built with substandard products and won’t stand the test of time if the governor does not intervene quickly enough.
The Executive Assistant who’s frustrated for his inability to pocket Secret Reporters despite his close friendship with one of the Publishers, Mr Fejiro Oliver is currently scheming to be made the next Commissioner for Information if Okowa is re-elected for a second term, even without prerequisite knowledge to head such sensitive position.
Various calls by him to this medium pleading for soft landing for non performing aides like himself and the corrupt ones has always met with deaf ears.
Serial ICT entrepreneur Leo Stan Ekeh has been announced as Chairman of the News Express 5th Anniversary Lecture scheduled to hold at Sheraton Hotel & Towers, Ikeja, Lagos, on Thursday, September 28, 2017. The announcement was made via a statement issued on Saturday in Lagos, signed by News Express Publisher Isaac Umunna.

Governor Sani Bello will be supported by an array of distinguished personalities from Nigeria and abroad whose identities would be made public in due course.
News Express, which debuted on August 29, 2012, is one of Nigeria’s most popular and influential online dailies. It is read by hundreds of thousands of people around the world and records annual traffic of upwards of 100 million.
The Executive Assistant to the Delta State Governor, Mr Fred Latimore has dismissed reports by Secret Reporters on Asaba Airport as a “glorified motor park”, while referring to the Airport as constructed to international standard.
In his reply posted on his usual facebook platform, Mr Latimore exalted the construction capabilities of the Airport Contractor, ULO Construction Company to high heavens while flagging off the report as a blackmail and hate speech including allegations of its sponsorship by imaginary elements.
According to Latimore, “Arik Air and Aero Contractors operates daily flights into Asaba International Airport”
Fact findings by Secret Reporters punctured the claim by the overzealous media aide as flights do not land in the airport daily as fabricated by him. Latimore according to our independent investigation went on a wild goose chase, acting as the Corporate Communications Manager to ULO without available facts to him and to be seen as the most active media aide to the governor.
The Executive Assistant we recall had at various times in the past called the Asaba Airport a conduit pipe by the Governor to steal public funds. His claim to calling the Editor-In-Chief of Secret Reporters to “realize that balance reports is an essential integral part of investigative Journalism” to plead with the news medium to stop any negative report about anyone in Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s government, admitting the ability of this newspaper to get information concerning the state with a snap of the finger.
Mr Latimore who parades himself as a PhD holder and always adding the appellation of ‘Dr’ to his name in order to bamboozle ignorant Deltans and blackmail politicians in Delta State into listening to him, we can authoritatively report has no PhD from any known university in the world. His closest to wearing the toga of the Doctorate robe was through a week Christian programme in 2012 titled ‘Word of Power’, where he was given a participant certificate which he has since held on to as an academic degree.
Secret Reporters maintains that the Asaba Airport is not of international standard and the control tower which is still under construction was built with hollow blocks, which will result in several death should it collapse anytime soon.
