Gov Ikpeazu Does Not Regard Abia Workers’ Plight – Udensi

Listen to article

The Governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in Abia State, Chief Chikwe Udensi, has made some open accusations on the Okezie Ikpeazu who is the Abia State governor, of being insensitive to the plights of the team of medical and health workers in Abia state.

Chief Udensi had made this statement while reacting to some photographs of Ikpeazu and his Rivers State counterpart, Nyesom Wike, enjoying a holiday in Turkey.

The security expert had reiterated that it was disappointing to see Governor Ikpeazu abandon Abia health workers in the state, who are owed a backlog of salaries, for a holiday in an overseas country with a functional health system.

He said, “Medical doctors and workers are being owed 25 months salary arrears and the Nigerian Medical Association has directed their members in Abia to proceed on a strike and the governor is happily cruising on a holiday overseas.

“Medical doctors in our teaching hospitals are also owed 25 months salaries. Their counterparts in the health management board are being owed about 11 months.

“Our governor is in Turkey with the Rivers Governor, Wike, enjoying a holiday and I saw the way they were holding hands in the park enjoying themselves.

“We must criminalize these acts. I’m frustrated. I feel sick inside me. I feel like jumping inside the gutter.

“That we have a government who owe essential workers like medical doctors; those whose job it is to save lives, those whose job it is to make sure we do not die, those whose job it is to give us medications, and prescribe all kinds of medications for us.

“They’re owed 25 months of salary and our governor is on holiday in a park.”

He maintained that legitimate people must be allowed to govern Abia, adding that the acts of ignorance displayed by Ikpeazu must be criminalised.

Udensi posited that the governor does not have conscience by his attitude towards workers in spite of his level of qualifications, while urging the youths to get their Permanent Voters Card in order to change the narrative.
