2019: Group Picks Gubernatorial Forms For Ikpeazu 

Published

on

A group under the aegis of Abia Concerned Citizens (ACC) have obtained the Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms for Abia state governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, to seek a second term in office.

The group said it was motivated to purchase the forms for the governor to encourage him to continue his good works beyond 2019.

Leader of the group, Ambassador Bestman Eruba who was flanked by Kingsely Wosu-Ezi, said they are impressed with the stewardship of governor Ikpeazu since he mounted the saddle in 2015, adding that another four years would help take his development strides across the state.

“We are at the headquarters of the PDP to purchase the Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms for governor Ikpeazu who in our estimation has done excellently well. We are here to encourage him to continue the good works he started more than three years ago.

“The PDP is a reformed party and we have no doubt that it would provide a level playing ground for all aspirants to vie for the various offices,” Eruba stated.

On whether the group had the consent of the governor to purchase the forms, Eruba explained that ACC as a group wants the best for Abians, stressing that the group is optimistic of Ikpeazu’s readiness to oblige its request to continue in office.

He further noted that “Ikpeazu has delivered on his electioneering campaign promises and as such would not hesitate to persuade him to seek re-electio. Hopefully, he will not only clinch the ticket but also wins the election because the electorates in the State are well informed about the projects, policies and programmes of the governor.”
