Abia State governor, Dr Okezie Victor Ikpeazu says he will continue to bear the cross of governance of the state till the last day of his administration as he has done in the last eight years.

This was in response to the advice given to him by his immediate past predecessor, Sen. Theodore Orji who told him to focus on the business of governance and leave him alone.

Ikpeazu in a statement on Saturday by his chief press Secretary, Onyebuchi Ememanka said it is not in his culture to engage in verbal missiles with his predecessors even when it is politically expedient to do so.

Ememanka said, “The attention of the Governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu has been drawn to a statement credited to Senator T.A.Orji, the immediate past Governor of Abia State.

“Governor Ikpeazu wishes to state that he is proudly carrying the cross of the governance of Abia State and will continue to carry it till his last day in office.

“Secondly, and as a personal policy, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu will not join issues with any of his predecessors in office. For the almost 8 years he has held office as Governor, he has not engaged any of his predecessors in any kind of untoward exchange, even when it seemed politically expedient to do so. This policy is largely responsible for the sociopolitical stability we have enjoyed in Abia State since 2015. The Governor intends to sustain this personal policy going forward.

“Finally, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu is of the firm view that as in all matters, history and posterity will put all things in proper perspective.”
