Professor Greg Ibe, a candidate for governor for the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in Abia State, has warned Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu that “importing performing Governors from other states under the guise of Integrity Governors” won’t help the PDP win the presidency in 2023.
According to Professor Ibe, Abians will completely reject Gov. Ikpeazu in 2023 as a result of his “abysmal performance in all sectors.”
Ibe was responding to the Governor’s statement that the opposition parties’ candidates were chosen from “PDP’s wastepaper bin.”
Ikpeazu stated that candidates from other parties posed no political relevance and posed no threat to the PDP during the official flag-off of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, campaign on Thursday in Umuahia.
But Professor Ibe, who was among those who left the PDP over claims of a lack of transparency leading up to its primaries, reacted quickly and admonished the Governor to stop living a life of self-denial.
” Ikpeazu should wake up from his state of deceptive illusion and face the hard facts of abysmal performance in all sectors”, Professor Ibe said.
His words:””The Governor should be advised to stop wasting scarce resources by flying in other state governors, since there are no roads for them to come into Abia through, just for the deceptive purpose of using their good performance in their respective states to manipulate Abians to vote for PDP.
