Electoral litigation: I have forgiven my detractors- Ikpeazu
The governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu, says he has forgiven his political opponents after distracting him with litigation that lasted for about two years.
Speaking through his Chief Press Secretary, Enyinnaya Appolos, shortly after the Supreme Court reaffirmed him as governor on Friday, following a case filed by Dr. Uche Ogah, challenging his candidacy under the platform of thePeoples Democratic Party, Ikpeazu said he now expected all Abians including his political opponents to join hands with him to move the state forward.
He said, “The time for politics is long over, and I have forgiven all those that were bent on distracting me. Let all well meaning Abians, including my opponents, come and join us to grow and develop our state without distractions as we ultimately have stakes in the growth and development of our state and people.
“Today, there is work to do in Abia and history will judge us by how much of that work we do, not by how much of politics we play. My doors are open to all, my ears are open to hearing and my eyes are strong enough to read suggestions on how we can best deliver greater dividends to those who really matter.”Punch
