Abia At 31 And The Way Forward


FIC Report (Abia State) – The Abia State Advisory Council led by the Acting Chairman, Sir. Chikezie Wachuku has decried the downplaying of persistent and consistent pleas with the various administration for the passing of the ‘Charter of Equity’ into Law by our State House of Assembly.

While stating that Members of the Council are firm believers in justice, equity and fairness, Sir. Chikezie Wachuku regretted that the Abia Charter of Equity which provides for equitable and even distribution of political offices among the three Senatorial Zones of the State is yet to be passed into law by the State House of Assembly.

The Abia State Advisory Council gave this reservation while briefing the Press at the Conference Room of the Secretary to the State Government as part of events marking the 31st Anniversary of the creation of Abia State.

Addressing the Press, the Acting Chairman, Abia State Advisory Council, Sir Chikezie Wachuku lauded the administration of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu for coming up with the Abia Long Term Development Plan 2020-2050, which is the first comprehensive plan geared towards a systematic development of all sectors for the next 30 years.

He, however, used the forum to thank Governor Okezie Ikpeazu for coming up with the first Abia Anthem which encapsulates the aspirations of Abians and encourage Ndi -Abia to work hard to keep Abia as number one in all things .

He appealed to incoming administration to utilize the inputs made in the Development Plan to move the State to greater heights.

The Council also appreciated successive administrations both Military and Civilian including the incumbent Governor Okezie Ikpeazu for their various constructive and progressive contributions to the development and growth of the State.

He called for Abians to vote wisely in the coming 2023 Elections while urging all hands to be on deck towards a more peaceful, secured and progressive Abia.
