On April 9, Mrs Ezekwesili had served the him a legal notice by her lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana, SAN, demanding explanation why he had listed her in his Alpha Reach Company without her consent, full disclosure of all the financial transactions of the company between 2012 and 2017 as well as a public apology from Mr. Omojuwa.

The Contents of Omojuwa Lawyer’s Letter


  1. We act as counsel to Japheth Omojuwa (“our client”), on whose instructions we are responding to your letter dated 9th April 2021 that you sent to him and which was widely shared on social media by your client and her family members.
  2. In the letter, you alleged that in 2012, our client registered a company known as Alpha Reach Company Limited (the “company”) – which you incorrectly referred to as Alpha Beta Limited – listing your client, Pastor Mrs. Obiageli Ezekwesili as a director without her consent and approval. You further claimed that sometime in 2017, our client caused the name of your client to be removed from the company’s list of directors.
  3. The company was indeed registered in 2012; our client however unequivocally denies your allegations that consent of your client was not sought before she was listed as a Director. Our client sought and obtained your client’s consent before listing her as a Director of the company, based on their close relationship, which you curiously omitted to mention in your letter.
  4. In the interest of completeness and full disclosure that you requested in your letter, we have set below the basis upon which our client sought and obtained your client’s consent to be listed as a Director of the company to begin with.
  5. Our client has a 10-year relationship with your client dating back to 2011. Our client had just completed the mandatory National Youth Service when he met your client, who took him under her wings and even assisted in paying part of his rent in Abuja in 2012. The relationship began when our client visited your client’s house in Abuja in the company of Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, upon her request. Our client enjoyed a triangular relationship with your client and Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, whom your client used to refer to as her “brother”. Both Mallam El-Rufai and your client were listed as Directors of Alpha Reach Company Limited when it was registered in 2012, with their full consent. Likewise, our client recalls being seated at the suite of a respected man of God at the Transcorp Hilton in Abuja, trusting your client with some very personal and painful stories. At a point in our client’s life, your client was his most trusted person and confidant. Some people can attest to this fact, and they will, at the appropriate time and forum.
  6. In addition, there are correspondence between both parties (on various platforms, including,,,,, Blackberry chats, WhatsApp chats, and Twitter Direct Messages) that demonstrate the extent and strength of their relationship in the period leading to and after the registration of the company. For instance, on: 6 April 2012 at 21:23, your client sent a message to our client stating as follows: “pull in your brother(s), Chine and Chuba (her biological sons) into what you do for now”. She made similar comments on 6 October 2012 at 21:23, a month after the incorporation of Alpha Reach Company Limited. 11 November 2013 at 13:57, over a year after the incorporation of Alpha Reach Reach Company Limited, your client exchanged messages with our client calling him “dear son”, and requested social media favours; on 16 February 2016 at 08:12, long after the incorporation of Alpha Reach Company Limited and her removal as a Director, your client exchanged messages with our client wherein she praised and described him as ‘exceptional’.
  7. Your client shared not only personal information but also her uncomplimentary opinions about other prominent people and former colleagues, with our client that she ordinarily would not share publicly, as she did on 16 April 2012 between 18:56 – 19:04 and 19 April 2013 at 10:13. These actions define the extent of the shared trust between both of them.
  8. Our client has similar documentary proof regarding the period to the removal of your client as a Director of Alpha Reach Company Limited. The relationship was not one-sided, and our client asisted your client in promoting various cuases and engagements, as well as defending your client against percieved attacks on social media, often times on her request. Our client is prepared to provide documentary evidence to support the above cliams and many more at the apropriate time and forum if the need arises.
  9. Clearly, your client is a successful public figure with whom our client had a close relationship. It is reasonable that our client wanted to leverage her reputation to advance the company he promoted. It was not until 2015 when it was certain that HE Mallam El-Rufai was going to become the Governor of Kaduna State and the likelihood that your client could be appointed a Minister by the tehn President-elect Muhammadu Buhai, GCFR, that they both were removed as Directors of the company. You might recall that your client honoured the ruling party’s invitation to deliver a keynote speech at a public forum in Abuja in 2014, and there was a general expectation that she would play a role in President Buhari’s government. Indeed, your client leaned on our client to publish and distribute her speech at the APC forum.
  10. The relationship between your client and our client deteriorated because our client is no longer the impressionable boy who had just completed his NYSC in 2011. He is a man who has earned his stripes and is no longer willing to fight proxy wars or be used to fight perceived enermies by a benefactor. He is tired of your clients’s constant efforts to control his public views and tweets.
  11. In your letter, you requested a full disclosure of documents. Our client is very much willing to disclose documents relating to the period between September 2012 and April 2015, when your client was a Director of the company. However, given how your client and her family shared the letter under reference on social media (in clear demonstration of bad faith) after our client had already acknowledged receiving it, your client and her family could not be trusted not to disclose the company’s sensitive corporate information if it is made available to her. Our client would only make those documents available to your client upon a written undertaking that the documents would be treated with utmost confidentiality.
  12. While he remains grateful for your client’s past contributions to his growth and development and his sad about the recent turn of events, our client is ready to use every piece of information at his disposal to defend himself and his future aganist your client’s ungodly alegations.
  13. We thank you for your kind courtesies

The Issues Omojuwa May Need to Attend to

This letter from Omojuwa’s lawyer clearly indicates that Mrs. Ezekwesili was indeed listed as a Director in Alpha Reach Company Limited which Mr. Omojuwa had earlier denied in the press release published by Alpha Reach via Twitter on 9 April 2021.

The statement – “Alpha Reach wishes to state that at no time was Dr. Mrs. Obiageli Ezekwesili a part-owner of Alpha Reach, and she is not a member of the Alpha Reach board. This clarification is necessary because of insinuations being made that she is/was a co-owner of Alpha Reach. Thank you, Signed – JJ. Omojuwa.
