Abia State, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has submitted that it is only one person that will be governor of Abia State in 2023, apparently making reference to the glamour by persons from different parts of the state jostling for the position next year.
Ikpeazu stated this in Aba, at the weekend, during the launch of a document framework ‘Needs Assessment Document/Induction ceremony,’ by a group, Ngwa Patriots Forum (NPF).
He said in the process of electing who would be governor of the state, some people may have been wronged, and urged them to forgive.
‘Only one person will be governor of the state in 2023; in the process of choosing who would be governor, some people may have been wronged, they should forgive, I will not leave my people in 2023,’ he said.
Ikpeazu commended the efforts of NPF members in seeking ways that will bring even development to Ngwa land.
While urging Ngwa land to strive to be one, he said it was imperative for the Ngwa nation to ask themselves who they are as a people.
Ikpeazu, who recommended the book to all Ngwa people to read and digest, added that it would serve as a guide to politicians.
NPF President, Uzo Ihuka, applauded Ikpeazu for ensuring the next governor of the state will come from Ngwa extraction.
He, however, regretted that this well-intentioned move had rather unfortunately generated disunity among the people.
