Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has sent a warm message of goodwill to the people of Abia State on the occasion of the 2022 Easter Celebration.
According to the Governor, “Once again, we have the exceptional privilege of being part of this year’s Easter celebration, one of the foundations of our Christian faith. The death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ are perhaps, the most significant events that shape our faith as Christians. It strengthens our faith and most importantly, gives us an enduring hope of a more glorious tomorrow”.
The Governor assured Abians that a better and more prosperous tomorrow is assured judging from the available positive macroeconomic indices.
“Hopefully”, the Governor continues, “before the end of this year, a huge part of our state will become illuminated with uninterrupted electricity as the Geometric Power Project will fully come on stream. The socioeconomic quantum leap this will come with can only be imagined. As a state with great potentials in small scale manufacturing and commerce, steady power will redefine our entire existence. When added to the fact that several key strategic infrastructural projects that will further boost commercial activities, especially in Aba will be commissioned in the next few weeks, it becomes even clearer that we are marching forward as a state and as a people”.
The Governor also uses the opportunity to appeal to the political class to tread with caution as they get ready to commence political activities for the 2023 elections.
“In the last 7 years, we have, by the grace of God Almighty and a deliberate and painstaking planning, managed to keep Abia as one of the states with most stable sociopolitical environments. We have, by the kindness of God, kept our state peaceful and safe, when compared to our neighbors. I therefore appeal to our politicians to be mindful of these as they plan to go into full scale politicking. Any acts capable of plunging our dear state into avoidable chaos must be avoided. The peace and security of our people must remain the most paramount consideration”.
Governor Ikpeazu assures Abians that he remains irrevocably committed to their welfare, even as the State grapples with scarce resources.
The Governor, on behalf his family, wishes our people a wonderful, peaceful and safe Easter Celebrations filled with the blessings of God Almighty.
