Ikpeazu’s Last Minute Promotion, a Greek Gift – Otti Warns


The Abia State Chapter of the Labour Party and the Alex Otti Campaign Council, in a joint statement signed by the party’s publicity secretary Njoku Jerry Ajike and the spokesperson of the campaign organisation, Ferdinand Ekeoma, have expressed dismay over the announcement from the Dr Okezie Ikpeazu-led PDP government in Abia State, purporting to promote Abia Workers to what was described as “Next Command Grade Level”.

The Labour Party, while insisting that the party is a natural home for Nigerian workers insisted that the party would always desire the best for Abia workers, and would have received the news with joy and appreciation.

The party however stated that the pronouncement falls yet into the category of “deceitful and misleading, actions, which ridicule and insult the people the government is meant to serve. This latest farce from Dr Okezie Ikpeazu-led PDP government further underlines the notoriety, of oppressing, suppressing and dehumanising workers and the electorate without fail.

“It beggars belief that a PDP led government that is owing 36 months salary arrears and over 50 months pension arrears to civil servants and pensioners respectively would have the temerity to pretend to be promoting Abia Civil servants at the twilight of the administration, shows that the Ikpeazu led government considers Abians as fools.

“While the noise of disapproval arising from that fraudulent promotion was yet to abate, the governor, who is legendary in making false and unfulfilled promises threw another bomb. This time around, he promised to pay Leave Allowances immediately. 

“This singular action has manifested governor Okezie Ikpeazu as one who has indulged in unconscionable wickedness against Abia workers and pensioners all these years.

“As much as we are confident that majority of Abia workers are very intelligent, smart and discerning enough to understand Ikpeazu’s kindergarten gimmick, it’s however important to remind the few unsuspecting ones that Ikpeazu’s desperation to impose one Okey Ahiwe, a fellow whose ambition is a creation of a Wana-be God father’s desperation to succeed himself through subterfuge, was the major reason behind the fake and deceitful promotion carried out by the governor,and thus should be disregarded and dismissed.

“Finally, we wish to urge the outgoing governor to accept the rejection of his party, his godson candidate and himself by Abians at the polls as a loud statement to his years of anti people leadership Ignominy that has brought sorrow, anquish and death upon Abians, and thus should desist from getting involved in acts capable of causing breakdown of law and order in his desperation to deliver a candidate that has been roundly rejected by Abians.”
