UMUAHIA—Mr. Ben Onyechere, a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain and former Special Assistant to Dr. Alex Ekwueme in Umuahia, yesterday, described the insinuation that the Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia will eye mark the opposition for ostracism as result of his victory at the Appeal Court as a sponsored hoax to imply that the governor is vindictive and malicious.
According to him, the insinuation is nothing but a replication of the trajectory of falsehood associated with those who are desperately struggling to undermine the political arrangement of equity in Abia State, believing albeit in self deceit that Abia governorship is for sale to the highest bidder.
His words: “The victory at the Appeal Court is considered as a victory for democracy which has helped to free the estranged Psyche of the generality of Abia electorate. The governor considers his role as father of all to be sacrosanct and is determined against all odds to protect the rights and privileges of citizens of the state irrespective of party affiliation.
“The primary concern of the governor is to fast-track the development and up grading of human capital resources through an intensive programme of infrastructural revolution which is intended to transcend all strata of the society.
“The governor as well as the populace cannot be perturbed by speculation that opponents have concluded plan to approach the Supreme Court because it is believed that sanity and sound judgment will continue to prevail particularly in the appellate courts over perversion of justice in the Nigerian judicial system.
“The Nigerian judiciary under the current chief justice has lived up to its bidding as the bastion of stability in the political system and there is no alternative to their status of maturity and impartiality.”
