Abia State Advisory Council has lauded the efforts of Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu on infrastructural development.
The Council commended Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu for the “noticeable infrastructural and human capital development” recorded under his watch in the past seven years.
The Council, however, expressed disappointment that 31 years after the creation of the state, Abia Charter of Equity which provides for equitable and even distribution of political offices among the three senatorial zones in the state, had yet to be passed into law.
Acting Chairman of the Council, Sir Chikezie Wachuku, who stated this during a press conference, urged the State House of Assembly to rise to the occasion as the document would help to guarantee peace and stability in the political space.
He restated the firm belief of members of the Council in justice, equity and fairness.
The council also appreciated successive administrations for their various constructive and progressive contributions to the development and growth of the State.
It called for all hands to be on deck towards a more peaceful, secured and progressive Abia.
The Council commended Gov. Ikpeazu for the “noticeable infrastructural and human capital development” recorded under his watch in the past seven years.
It also applauded Ikpeazu’s administration for coming up with the Abia Long Term Development Plan 2020-2050, which is the first comprehensive plan geared towards a systematic development of all sectors for the next 30 years.
