    .The purported victory of Dr. Ikpeazu, from eyewitnesses in entire Abia, is false, malicious and a calculated act to keep Theodore Orji’s stooge to continue to hold Abians perpetually down in slavery. I am convinced that this will eventually turn to a woeful failure and an effort in futility. As Governor Orji leaves Abia at the end of his tenure, he shall have no cover for himself; which is the reason for his desperation. Whoever has agreed and aligned with him in this plot, will fail and pay for it direly. God has a plan for Abia and the Abians, and no human being and/or machinery can stop it. Let’s all watch out there is not victory that Gov. Orji and his cohorts are making. Abians pray that the will of God be done in this case.

    This is an omen. Interestingly, this Okezie Ikpeazu man does not have anything to offer Abians.
    He seems very ready to continue the culture of incompetent and non performing governance of Thodore Orji.

    I think he is as retarded as his educated illiterate boss. PhD does not depict intelligence.

    It just shows you are resilient and patient to stay longer in school to receive an extra certificate.
    From his inability to deliver as Environmental Protection Agency boss, it is evident he has nothing to offer us.

    I pity Abia State.

  • godsportion says:

    I believe governor Theodore Orji needs to have his head examined.
    I can confidently say that his IQ is subnormal with the state Abia is in.

  • godsportion says:

    Our retarded governor has brought his stooge to continue the culture of incompetence in the state. I am unimpressed.
