The Governor in a statement signed by his chief press secretary, Onyebuchi Ememanka also told the delegation that Ohafia land is well known to him by reason of the many close personal relationships he had built there over the years and challenged them to assert their natural leadership in the area by pursuing their own distinct political interests while refusing to be roped into a scheme that would undermine their long term interests.

He said that as the race for 2023 hots up, the people of Ohafia Udumeze will play leading roles in forging a direction that will ensure peace and stability in Abia State.

The release added, “Governor Ikpeazu used the opportunity to thank the people of Ohafia Udumeze and Ohafia LGA as a whole for their support to his administration which explains why he has ensured that the LGA enjoyed political stability, stating that he is the first Governor in the State since 1999 to have spent almost two tenures with one Deputy Governor who is a son of Ohafia LGA.


“Earlier, the leader of the delegation and current Deputy Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Asiforo Ifeanyi Uchendu, a former Member of the State Assembly from Ohafia South, Chief Mba Ukaha, a renowned businessman from Ohafia, Chief Udensi Ekea, a Traditional Ruler and Chairman of Ohafia Council of Ndi Eze, Eze Odum Amaogu, in their separate speeches thanked the Governor for keeping faith with their people especially by appointing two of their illustrious sons, Chief Kingsley Imaga and Comrade Chidiebere Uwagwu as Honorable Commissioners and members of the State Executive Council, as well as the appointment of their son, Chief Olugu Kalu Ugba as Deputy Chief of Staff to the Governor.
