Ihedioha Asks Financial Institutions To Stop Transacting With Okorocha

The Imo state governor-elect, Emeka Ihedioha, has warned financial institutions to stop new transactions with the state government, or do so at their own peril.
Ihedioha, who said at a media interaction in Owerri on Thursday, said new transactions would increase chances of illegal activities and jeopardise the financial stability of the state, NAN reports.
He said his duty and responsibility would be to ensure that citizens and residents of the state remained united and work together for the common good of the state.
The governor-elect commended other contestants in the election for their “sportsmanship” and urged them to partner his administration to “restore the dignity of the state”.
Dedicating his success to the “common men”, he commended the people for buying into his vision of realising a dream state and promised to work hard to justify their faith in him.
He also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies for their roles in ensuring that the election was credible.
He went on to outline plans to set up a transition committee to liaise with the outgoing government to ensure a smooth transition and chart a way forward for the state.
He also promised to work out programmes, which would engage the youth as a way to end drug abuse and curb vices, starting with the rehabilitation of the four technical colleges in the state.

PDP Congratulates Governor Okezie Ikpeazu On His Well-Deserved Re-Election

The Peoples Democratic Party, Abia State Chapter, is deeply excited to congratulate the Governor of the State, Leader of the Party and her Governorship Candidate in 2019 governorship election, Okezie Victor Ikpeazu, Ph.D, on his victorious emergence as re-elected Governor of Abia State.

The Party, in a release issued at Umuahia on Sunday 10th March, 2019, expressed delight that the people of the State showed understanding and appreciation of Governor Ikpeazu’s honest and committed efforts to advance the collective interest of the State, despite  unprecedented vigorous determination by few disgruntled inordinate politicians in the State to distract him during the first three years of his first tenure.

PDP, while assuring the people of Abia State of a more enhanced quality of governance by the PDP government of Governor Ikpeazu, vividly asserted that it will continue to partner with the Governor in his vision of making the State a better place to live or do business in.

In its conclusion, the Party also congratulated all candidates of other Political Parties that participated in the election for their expected sportsmanship.

The Party strongly wishes that, in acknowledgement of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu’s 261,127 votes as against 99,574 and 64,366 scored by Uche Ogah of APC and Alex Otti of APGA, respectively, the futility of going to Court by other candidates should not be contemplated.

PDP strongly hopes that, as respectable indigenes of the State, they and their respective Political Parties will accept the  reality of the political configuration of the State, by respecting and accepting the result of the governorship election as declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

The Party is of the opinion that, unlike what happened sequel to 2015 governorship election, the candidates who were unsuccessful in the contest would place the State first by manifesting patriotism and altruism, instead of selfishly negatively navigating towards a destination that could only, at best, be avoidable distraction.

The Senator Mao Ohuabunwa Campaign Organization wishes to inform the general public that there has not been a return on the Abia North senatorial election. The true position is that results are still being collated.
Further, it has come to our knowledge that INEC operatives in their haste to arrive at a pre-determined conclusion manipulated the electoral process to the shock of all well-meaning patriots who believe in democracy. In this respect, it is tragic that INEC could conduct an election without the issuance of form EC40G, a form used to capture cancelled votes and places where there were no voting.
In the circumstances of the above, we demand that the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Abia State should direct the Returning Officer of the Abia North Senatorial Election to make the requisite declaration in accordance with the dictates of Rule 17E(e) of the guidelines for the conduct of of elections issued by INEC by cancelling the elections completely.

Ukpai Ukairo Esq.
