The All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) senatorial candidate for Abia North Zone in 2015, Chief David Ogba Onuoha, has called on Abians to support Governor Okezie Ikpeazu to rebuild the state.
The Abiriba – born politician who made the call after his congratulatory visit to Ikpeazu at Abia State Governor’s Lodge in Aba, said it is the will of God for Ikpeazu to be governor, saying that he should be supported in his efforts at rebuilding the state.
He said: “Abia State is our collective heritage., it is therefore our collective responsibility to join hands and ensure its development.
“The Supreme Court has on May 12, 2017 returned Okezie Victor Ikpeazu PhD as the Governor of Abia State in what many have described as the Will Of God given the circumstances surrounding his election into office.
“It is therefore, the responsibility of all well meaning Abians to support the Governor at this point. It is also our collective hope that Governor Ikpeazu will now concentrate on governance and delivering greater dividend of democracy to Abians., these however can only be possible in an atmosphere of peace and harmony.
“It is therefore, my advise to all political opponents of Governor Ikpeazu to accept the olive branch extended to them by the governor and join hands with him to develop the state for the good of all.”
The Paramount ruler of Abiriba Kingdom and Chairman of Ohafia Local Government traditional ruler council, Eze Kalu Kalu Ogbu IV, called on Abians and opponents of Ikpeazu to “join hands with him to build the new Abia of our dreams”.
The monarch, who described the governor’s victory as divine called for an end to “all forms of distraction so that the government will be allowed to carry out its great dreams for Abia State and Ndi Abia”.
