A chieftain of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in Abia, Sir Chikwe Udensi has described the administration of former governor Theodore A. Orji as a disaster, accusing him of laying a horrible foundation inherited by the outgoing governor Okezie Ikpeazu.
Sir Udensi, an Interpol Systems Consultant who spoke during his weekly appearance on Love FM’s Open Parliament in Umuahia on Wednesday monitored by ABN TV was responding to a former Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Mr. Charles Ogbonna who said the Okezie Ikpeazu-led government has failed and that he was rating it 5 percent.
Faulting this position, Sir Udensi said the administration of former governor T.A Orji where Mr. Ogbonna served is not any better than that of Ikpeazu, accusing the former commissioner and his principal then of taking N500m loan for each local government in the name of developing the local governments, but failed to do anything.

“The question is does he (Ogbonna) have the temerity, does he have the audacity to cast aspersions on another government? There is no way the government he served is any better.
“The T. A Orji government was a disaster, an absolute disaster. In fact he laid a very horrible foundation that was followed suit by Okezie Ikpeazu.
“So if you ask me, in all sense of honesty, when it comes to some areas of infrastructure, Okezie Ikpeazu scored better than T.A Orji. That does not mean that both of them did not fail.
“Both are failed governments but when it comes to performance in some areas, Ikpeazu did a lot better than T.A Orji”, he said.
He said all roles of local government as stipulated in the constitution was violated by T.A Orji, a ministry that was directly under the supervision of Mr. Charles Ogbonna.
Sir Udensi pointed out that in the area of infrastructure, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu did better than his predecessor, especially in road infrastructure.
He was quick to say if the revenue available to the State government is considered and compared to infrastructure in place, the government did not do enough.
