Abia Governor Okezie Ikpeazu said he prioritized the state's peace and security over running for the Senate. Mr. Ikpeazu said so in a press statement signed by his chief press officer, Mr. Onyebuchi, and released Wednesday to journalists in Umuahia.
"Our government is firmly committed to ensuring the security and peace that Abia has always enjoyed under my supervision." "Thank God, no deaths have been reported so far during the presidential and parliamentary elections. There have been no reports of violence during the elections either." Personally, I am a full man. I have won many battles and elections, including defeating COVID-19.
Elections are held every four years; he wins or loses like any other competition. " Ikpeazu added that the state government was determined to ensure that the peace and security that characterized the previous election would be replicated in the gubernatorial and state legislative elections.
He said the events following the presidential and parliamentary elections will not prevent the Abia People's Democratic Party from successfully nominating all candidates on March 11. Ikpeazu urged the people of Abia to keep calm, keep peace, and abide by the law as the state prepares for its March 11 elections.
