Jack-Rich, who is the President of BelemaOil Producing Limited, described Ude’s claims, accusing him of allowing his wife, “Elizabeth, to have a sexual relationship with Seyi Tinubu, the son of President Bola Tinubu,” as “provocative, malicious, preposterous, unwarranted, distasteful, and unsubstantiated publication by politically sponsored agents.”

In a statement, the family said: “Dear fellow Nigerians, the attention of the family of Tein T.S. Jack-Rich CON, has been drawn to the recent provocative, malicious, preposterous, unwarranted, distasteful, and unsubstantiated publication by politically sponsored agents within the past two days, making several spurious allegations against the person and family of Jack-Rich, all with the intention of maligning his name and reputation.

“It is also sad that this is with the aim of gaining cheap political relevance within the emerging political space.

“On behalf of the family, we wish to state unequivocally clearly, and with all sense of responsibility that the entirety of the allegations are not only unfounded and childish, but also depict the nature and character of the persons and evil elements behind them; who are also well known by their political brigandage and desperation for political relevance.

“Just another figment of the convoluted imagination of persons who see him as a major obstacle to their desperate dreams, aspirations, and political desperation for survival because they have lost their own political roots.

“Let it be re-emphasised here again that Tein Jack-Rich did not, will not, and will never need to bribe anyone for any political appointment in a party he just recently served as the Vice-Chairman, Finance Committee, of the Presidential Campaign, that his party won”.
