Abia APC Tells Ikpeazu To Paste Posters on His Projects In The State

Governor Ikpeazu had in some public functions 2017/18 while reeling out what he has been able to achieve within the three years of his administration in the state was quoted to have urged anyone gunning for elective position in the state, especially governorship position to paste his or her campaign poster(s) on project(s) he or she has done in the state for Abians to see.

The APC who just came back from a tour of completed and ongoing projects by the incumbent administration in the state, irked by what they met on ground has asked Gov. Ikpeazu to fulfill his promise by directing his supporters to paste his posters on projects that he has been able to execute in the state under his administration.

Comrade Benedict Godson, the Publicity Secretary of the party in a chat with journalists in Umuahia, the Abia State capital noted that the incumbent leadership in the state has resorted to media hype of incomplete, abandoned and substandard projects in the state.

Godson who said that they were baffled with the realization that most of the projects the government is claiming to have executed were only done and completed on radio wondered why the Ikpeazu led government has embraced deceit than delivering dividend of democracy to the people of the state.

The spokesman of the APC who further stated that most of the completed projects that the state government is claiming to have attracted or executed were awarded by the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), said it was laughable that someone who knows he has nothing to offer to the people of the state would wake up and start making boastful claims that will ridicule his government before any discerning Abian.

Godson who stated that APC is coming to change the narrative of PDP misgovernance in the state over the years, enjoined Abians to ensure that they voted out all the PDP candidates in the state come 2019, starting from February 16.

“We are urging him to remain a gentleman and keep to his boast. The man campaigned in 2014-2015 and pasted his posters in many places, but in the euphoria of being a sitting governor he began to make reckless and boastful political comments about where people should paste posters during campaigns.

“On several occasions, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu boasted and said that during campaigns, everyone should paste their posters on their works or projects, but we have being waiting for him to start such, but he can’t.

“He cannot start it because he has done absolutely nothing for four years! Where is he going to paste them? as a gentleman man, he has wholeheartedly accepted that he has done absolutely nothing in the state until recently when his errand boys decided to do otherwise.

“What are his posters doing in the streets of Aba, a city he left to decay? We urged him to remain truthful to himself and not be deceived to go about pasting posters anyhow on roads that are death traps and that experimental flyover projects being executed by Civil Engineering students on their Industrial Training at Osisioma.

“It’s obvious he has not done anything and we are pleading with him to caution his errand boys from disobeying his rule by pasting his posters on electric polls, peoples fences, church fences, school fences and other strategic places which he has nothing to do with.

“They should respect him for it’s very wrong to do what ones master is against. If they want to do his wish in accordance with his boast, let them paste his posters at that funny Osisioma flyover and on abandoned road projects like the Port Harcourt Road, Immaculate Avenue, Osusu, Ngwa Road, Obohia, Aba-Road in Umuahia, Emelogu Bridge, Emelogu dumping site and so many other sorry sights in Aba, Umuahia and Ohafia.

“Why are they pasting his posters at Asa Road and other motorable axis of Aba which he had no hands in making them the way they are? Are those places his project? He should keep to his words and let’s see if there is a single place especially in Aba that he can paste posters.
