Abia State Governor Okezie Ikpeazu expressed his decision Friday to make former vice chancellor of Abia State University Uturu, Prof. Uche Ikonne, the next governor of the state.

Prof. dr. Ikonne is from the Isiala Ngwa area of ​​the Central Senatorial District of Abia.

Ikpeazu made this claim while receiving a delegation of the representatives of the leaders of the people of Isiala Ngwa North LGA led by the Chairman of the State Council of Traditional Rulers, Hrm Eze Joseph Nwabeke at the Governor’s Lodge Aba, stating “justice, fairness and political stability, all support the emergence of the next governor of Abia State from the Isiala Ngwa area of ​​the Central Senatorial District of Abia”.

Ikpeazu made it clear that the arrival of a governor from the other half of Abia Central was in accordance with the spirit and letters of the Abia Charter of Equity, which stated that the Abia Charter of Equity was entered into in 1981 between the old Umuahia and Aba Senatorial zones with the recognition of Isuikwuato as a district.

According to him, the election of his successor from Isiala Ngwa in 2023 will pave the way for the completion of the full functioning of the Charter of Equity, allowing the rotation to begin again from Abia North, “giving every known part of the state an appropriate sense of belonging”.

The choice of Prof. Ikonne, he said, was the result of his proven track record in administration and public service and instructed the people of Isiala Ngwa North LGA to seize this great historic opportunity, putting his confidence expressed in Professor Ikonne’s ability to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people of the state of Abia.

The leader of the delegation and chairman of the State Council of Traditional Rulers, Eze Joseph Nwabeke, previously told the governor that the people of Isiala Ngwa North are grateful to him for his warm and positive attitude towards the people of Isiala Ngwa North and assured him that since the PDP has chosen their candidate from there, the people will do the necessary.
