According to him, “If we don’t make a change now, I don’t when. Abia is the poorest state in the federation. The governor has failed and has not done justice with that mandate.
“People will kill themselves if ikpeazu is reelected. Abians cannot continue with PDP misrule.
“The governor has disappointed the masses, including the people from his own Obingwa local government area”.
Meanwhile, the publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abia state, Comrade Benedict Godson, has expressed confidence that President Muhammadu Buhari would defeat the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Atiku Abubakar, in the forthcoming February presidential election.

“This is not autocratic system of government. APC believe in democracy. And that development is what we are offering Nigerian people,that development is what we want to consolidate on”.Source:
