Browsing: Governor Okezie Ikpeazu

Orji Kalu came from the Old Umuahia zone in the old configuration. The governor came from Abia North Senatorial Zone in the new geopolitics. Rather than follow the formula of Abia’s fathers’ drawn ab initio ahead of the creation of the state, he chose a new procedure. He picked on Chief Theodore Orji, his then Chief of Staff, from Umuahia or the new Abia Central senatorial zone. It is interestingly coincidental that both men sit in the Senate currently representing Abia North and Abia Central. 

This is even as the Abia group expressed total confidence in the capacity of Professor Ibe to change the narratives in the governance of Abia State with his vast wealth of experiences to address the infrastructural deficits in parts of the state, and as well as revamp critical economic sector to boost development of the state.
