24 Years Of PDP Reign In Abia Was Wasteful – APGA Chieftain

Listen to article

A chieftain of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Christian Okeri has described as wasteful, the 24 years reign of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Abia State. 

He made this known while speaking in an interview with journalists in Aba yesterday.

In evaluating the current situation in Abia, Okeri stated that the previous ruling party was unable to show that it was capable of tackling the numerous issues preventing the state’s socioeconomic and infrastructure growth.

Okeri lamented the fact that previous PDP-controlled governments had appropriated public properties, like as buildings and land in prime positions in big towns, and turned them into private property while sitting on the commonwealth of the Abia people with impunity.

He lauded the efforts of the present state government in the development of critical infrastructure that eluded Abia over the past years caused by PDP maladministration in the state.

I still remain truthful maintaining that the 24 years of PDP governance of the state was wasteful because the new administration is restarting every aspect of development afresh despite having taken over from predecessors in office that were telling us that they were right on course to uplifting the state to higher levels.

“To me, Governor Alex Otti has, in nine months, done what each of his predecessors could not do in their eight years tenure running into 24 years. I am personally proud of him, though I am not a member of his party.

“We must at this point keep party issues by the side and face reality. His performance in infrastructural development is so visible that even his enemies are saying he has done well,” Okeri said.

He urged the people of the state to give their maximum support to the current administration as it is on the right track in taking the state to a higher pedestal.
