Chuxs Muokwe, Umuahia
Former Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chief Emeka Wogu, has warned Abians against distracting Governor Okezie Ikpeazu urging them to rather support him to achieve his developmental blue print for the state.
Chief Wogu made the call at the Government House Umuahia while answering questions from newsmen after a private visit to the governor.
He said warned that Governor Ikpeazu cannot achieve much if he is distracted and called on all to lend their support instead.
“I think he should be allowed to concentrate on the development of the state without distractions”, Wogu said.
Chief Wogu said that the Governor should not be seen as an Ngwa governor, but governor for all Abians.
He further advised that people should not demean the office of the governor.
The former minister, who contested the PDP primaries with Governor Ikpeazu, said that there is always one Governor at a time, adding that as a long standing lawyer, he did not go to court because he knows the limits he can go.
“As a lawyer for 30 years, I know where to win and where to lose”, he said.
He stated that the Governor has done well in spreading the dividends of democracy to all parts of the state.
Wogu also drummed support for President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration saying, it means well for the people.
According to him, his anti corruption policies, as well as his program on security, are paying off just as he expressed optimism that the economy will soon get better.
