Opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, National Chairman Uche Secondus has scored Abia State governor high in the delivery of democratic dividends to the people of the state since assuming office in 2015, describing the area as one of the very few lucky states in terms of performance.
Secondus, who gave his observation shortly after undertaking a tour of the projects embarked on and those already completed and inaugurated alongside other big wigs of the party, described Governor Okezie Ikpeazu as a performer.
“Okezie is a performing governor of Abia State. I came with our PDP NWC members from WADATA PLAZA to see the achievements of Ikpeazu. He was bold to invite us because he knew he has performed. From the faces of Abians, I am convinced that he has performed.
“The faces I have seen today, I don’t think I have seen it like this before. Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has taken over everywhere. Those politicians that make things happen in Abia State are with the Governor in PDP. This is what PDP Governors in the states are doing. All the PDP Governors are in unison and agreement, standing on our party.”
Secondus, who also joined Governor Ikpeazu to receive members of the APC defecting to the PDP, said it was just a matter of time before those who left returns as well as new members who want to be at the party that is truly democratic in all aspects
“All the PDP governors are intact waiting to accept all those that are coming to our party. We are on a mission to recover Nigerians from the APC Government. Everybody knows that APC has collapsed. The APC government is responsible for all the killings in this country. We must blame them for misinformation and collapse of the economy.”
He said the PDP had embarked on rescue mission to take over power from the All Progressives Congress (APC) and return to the Presidency in 2019, and that the backlash of misinformation and unwillingness to protect Nigerians was the APC’s greatest undoing.
Governor Ikpeazu had earlier told Secondus that unity, love and togetherness were the salient factors, which bind Abia PDP together, and that “the story is that love is here and that is what will take us higher. Take it that Abia is safe for PDP. We will support all the programmes that you have set up and that will take PDP back to Aso Rock in 2019.
“We have a very long day, you are rebranding PDP without making noise. We have done enough but there are more to be done. Today, we are commissioning 20 projects and another 20 tomorrow. Our achievements have increased our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in Abia State.”
