Why power must move to Abia North in 2023 – Greg Ibe
By Steve Oko
The Vice Chancellor of Gregory University Uturu, Professor Greg Ibe, has insisted that power move to Abia North particularly Isuikwuato bloc, come 2023 is non-negotiable.
According to the entrepreneur and former governoship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, equity and justice demand that Abia North especially Isuikwuato should produce the next governor of Abia State.
He argued that in 2015 when some of them from Abia North wanted to contest for the number one position in the state, Abia elders prevailed on them to allow power move to Abia South first in the spirit of zoning and Abia Chatter of Equity.
Ibe said they heeded the appeal of the elders and withdrew from the race having been assured by the elders that come 2023, power would return to Abia North.
He said it would be unacceptable injustice for anybody to contemplate of not ceding power to Abia North in 2023.
” The people that committed us to zoning are still alive, and they must respect the zoning arrangement.
” Abia elders know that zoning arrangement must be respected. They asked us to wait in 2015 , and we waited. Now it’s our turn, and they know that we know that the zoning arrangement subsists.”
Professor Ibe argued further than Isuikwuato bloc which represents the”I” in Abia acronym is the only bloc in the four letter acronym that formed the state which was yet to produce the governor of the state.
According to him the people of Isuikwuato were promised to be considered for power before they left Imo State and accepted to be part of Abia during the creation of Abia State.
Ibe promised to revolusiinalise the state if giving the opportunity to serve in 2023, saying he remains the highest investor in the state.Steve Oko, Publisher/C.E.O, WaWa News Global.
