Opposition parties flay Ikpeazu’s projects inspection, commissioning modality
Opposition political parties in Abia State have criticised Governor Okezie Ikpeazu’s modalities for inspection and commissioning of on-going projects in the state.
They said the governor had put the number of such projects at 60 and that the projects were spread across the three senatorial districts of the state.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman, Uche Secondus and National Working Committee (NWC) members, state chairman and Working Committee members, serving lawmakers at national and state levels, among others attended the event.
Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, Donatus Nwankpa, said that the governor used the inspection to launch his second term campaign for 2019.
Another APC chieftain, Chibuike Ukauwa queried the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for not calling the PDP to order over campaign ahead of the timetable.
He urged INEC to live up to its responsibility by monitoring the political parties with a view to sanctioning them when they breach the rules like in this case of the PDP”.
Also speaking, Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the state, Augustine Ehiemere, told The Guardian on the telephone that the PDP, having lost its focus on its claimed mission and vision, resorted to using the projects inspection to hoodwink the electorate.
But Secondus scored Ikpeazu’s performance in office so far as very high, describing him as the pride of PDP.
He decried APC-led administration at the federal level, saying it has not only impoverished the country but also failed to stop the herdsmen killings of Nigerians.
He maintained that the PDP had been revived and was now in position to take over the government at the centre from the APC.
