Ikpeazu Has Done Nothing To Merit Second Term, Says World Igbo Youth Congress
The World Igbo Youth Congress (WIYC), has vowed to to stop the re-election of Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu in the 2019 gubernatorial election.
In a communique signed by the National Public Relations Officer, Mazi Alex Okemiri, the group advised Ikpeazu to resign as Abia governor, to avoid being honoured as “the face of bad governance and worst governor in Nigeria.”
The youth group listed Ikpeazu’s sins to include: “Non-payment of worker’s salaries and pension; his Made-in-Aba products promotion campaign as a fraud…He uses the campaign of made-in-Aba products to establish a secret company in China and uses the scheme to launder funds through his aides and that’s why he has no control over some of his Ngwa aides, especially those from Obingwa.
“His Obingwa aides are richer than Abia State and (they) will be dragged to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission by January, to know how they acquired over half of the choicest properties in Aba and Umuahia.
“Ikpeazu has collapsed all the infrastructure in Abia, without constructing any major road in Abia. Rather, he is hiding under the Governors’ Forum to demand for federal government’s intervention in federal roads in Abia.”
The WIYC said it is in total support of ex-governor Orji Uzor Kalu’s stand that “Ikpeazu will be the first Abia sitting governor to lose his seat to APC or APGA.
“Ikpeazu has been caged by his beer parlour Ngwa aides and when he loses election, Obingwa people will stone him, he should emulate Mugabe and resign and hand over to his deputy.”
