Abia State Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has given an insight into what will determine the 2023 general elections.
Ikeazu said legacies and competencies, not mere politicking and promises, would determine the 2023 elections.
The governor stated this on Monday during the inauguration of the Osisioma flyover and roads in the commercial city of Aba.
Ikpeazu said he inaugurated the projects to silence his critics, adding that campaign posters would not be allowed on projects executed and completed by his administration.
The project christened: “Okezuo Abia Flyover” was undertaken to ease traffic on the Osisioma junction, known for its traffic bottlenecks.
Ikpeazu said: “This is the time of politics. If you want to contest an election in Abia, you must show us what you’ve done before. From your family show us your work. Don’t paste posters on my flyover, streetlight and projects. Place your posters on your projects, not on my own projects.
“Today (yesterday) is a sad day for those who taught that this flyover will never be completed. It is a sad day for those who called it a borehole and called it a center table.
“This is a sad day for the Sanballat and Tobiah (detractors) those who called this flyover ‘Centre Table’, this is a sad day for them. I weep for them as they hide their faces in shame. All those who thought this flyover will not come true, my word for you shame on you.”
