The Deputy Governor of Abia State, Rt. Hon Ude Oko Chukwu, says he is happy and full of pride to be associated with his principal, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, saying the Governor has indeed made Abia State an Investors Haven as a result of his unwavering commitment to security.
Oko Chukwu expressed satisfaction that under the watch of Governor Ikpeazu, Abia has been adjudged one of the safest states as well as a reference point on infrastructural development and MSMES promotion through his five Cardinal Policy Pillar Thrust of Education, Agriculture, Health, Trade and Investment and Oil and Gas and their enablers’.
The Abia Deputy Governor made the claims in a statement to congratulate Ikpeazu on his well-deserved award as the Best Governor On Security Matters in Nigeria 2020 by Business Day Newspapers.
Oko Chukwu noted that the award is a clear testimony that no selfless service rendered to the citizens has ever gone unnoticed and uncelebrated, pointing out that Ikpeazu deserved the honour, given the giant strides his administration has recorded in all sectors.
The former Speaker, Abia House of Assembly, joined Abians and Nigerians as well as all people of goodwill to congratulate and rejoice with Governor Okezie Ikpeazu on his award.
He, however, prayed Almighty God to continually uphold and prosper Governor Ikpeazu in his wisdom, strength and grace as he tirelessly renders selfless service to Abians in particular and Nigerians in general.
