Lagos – Chief Emeka Kalu, the Director General of Atikulated Agenda 2019, has advised the people of Abia State to re-elect Governor Okezie Ikpeazu for second term.
Kalu, a former governorship candidate under the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), said he endorsed Ikpeazu due to the developmental strides he had taking, and more importantly, to ensure that Abia South completed their eight years in the spirit of equity.
Kalu, who gave the advise while fielding questions from INDEPENDENT on Wednesday, said that there would be no alternative to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), both in Abia State and the Presidency.
He said: “Governor Ikpeazu should be re-elected to complete the good records he has set in Abia. He has started developing Abia, my dear state, and it will be a pity for anyone to interrupt him midway in an experiment that is likely to fail, like the APC promised change. If Abia fall into the kind of monumental mistake Nigerians made in 2015, then we are doomed.
“Another reason Ikpeazu must be re-elected is for the sake of equity. Since Abia North and South have taken their slots in the governorship race, Abia South just got on the saddle with Ikpeazu. Would you get him off governance just after four years?
“The right thing is for him to complete the slot and power will return to north. That is equity, and Abians must demonstrate that they are their brother’s keeper by ensuring that all the zones are evenly represented.”
