Abia State governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, has vowed not to join issues with any of his predecessors on matters pertaining to governance in the state.

The governor who was reacting to a statement credited to his immediate predecessor on the plight of the workers in the state, Senator Theodore Orji, said he is proudly carrying the cross of the governance of Abia State and will continue to carry it till his last day in office.

He added that as a personal policy, he will not join issues with any of his predecessors in office, stressing that the principle is largely responsible for the sociopolitical stability they have enjoyed in Abia State since 2015.

Senator Orji had asked the governor to stop blaming him for his failure to pay the salary arrears owed workers in the state. But in reaction, the governor said he would not be drawn into any exchanges with his predecessor.

Governor Ikpeazu who made the declaration in a release by his chief press secretary, Onyebuchi Ememanka, stated; “The attention of the Governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu has been drawn to a statement credited to Senator T.A.Orji, the immediate past Governor of Abia State.

“Governor Ikpeazu wishes to state that he is proudly carrying the cross of the governance of Abia State and will continue to carry it till his last day in office.

“Secondly, and as a personal policy, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu will not join issues with any of his predecessors in office. For the almost 8 years he has held office as Governor, he has not engaged any of his predecessors in any kind of untoward exchange, even when it seemed politically expedient to do so. This policy is largely responsible for the sociopolitical stability we have enjoyed in Abia State since 2015. The Governor intends to sustain this personal policy going forward.

“Finally, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu is of the firm view that as in all matters, history and posterity will, over time, put all things in proper perspective”.
