The Abia State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has attacked Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu, after he claimed that he has built 150 roads across the state during his administration.

Ikpeazu had disclosed that his government has built 150 roads in the state, in a television broadcast on August 27 to mark the 31st anniversary of the creation of Abia.

BUT, the APC in a statement issued by Dr. Kingsley Ononogbu, the State Party Chairman, in a reaction to the Governor’s comments, stated that Ikpeazu awarded himself outlandish marks of performance, saying that such number of roads could only exist in the imagination of the Governor.

He alleged that Ikpeazu has subjected the people to years of woes, pains and outright failure of governance.

Ononogbu appreciated Abians for their steadfastness and in keeping hope alive for a better tomorrow for us all, our children and children’s children.

According to him: “In celebrating Abia state at 31, Abians should ideally be celebrating monumental developmental strides given the enormous human and material resources we are endowed with as a people by the Almighty God.

“But in reality and in all honesty, Abians are merely celebrating the anniversary of the creation of the state with nothing concrete on the ground to show for the 31 years of existence when compared with other neighboring States and others created at the same time.

“The Abia ugly narrative has long become an embarrassment even to the players in the successive administrations since the creation of the State. There is actually nothing to celebrate within the developmental indices, suggesting that what this time calls for is sober reflection by all Abians and to ask ourselves pertinent questions.’

He added that people of the state should be questioning themselves on how their state got to this level of underdevelopment and what must be done to reverse the ugly trend as the 2023 general election draws near.

“These questions and answers are critical at this crucial point in time to avoid a repeat of the mistakes of the past. Abians should cry no more, search no more and look no further because God has heard our cries and prayers by touching credible Abia sons and daughters to take interest in politics.”

He vowed that the APC will change the narrative positively and lead the State to the desired vision of a New Abia.
