The Aba Union, comprising nine of the 17 local government areas in Abia State,  says  those plotting to unseat Governor Okezie Ikpeazu were attempting to breach the Abia Charter of Equity, warning that such a move, would plunge the state into unending crises.

The union’s warning was contained in a communique the group issued at the end a meeting it held at the office of Chief Emmanuel Adaelu at Osisioma Wednesday.

The union is made up of Aba North, Aba South, Isiala Ngwa North, Isiala Ngwa South, Ukwa East, Ukwa West, Osisioma Ngwa, Obingwa and Ugwunagbo Local Governments commonly referred to as the Ukwa-la-Ngwa nation in Abia State.

The group expressed its belief in the rotational leadership formula of the Abia Charter of Equity which has produced Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu (Abia North), Chief Theodore Orji (Abia Central), and now Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia South). It, therefore, said that any attempt to remove Ikpeazu from being the governor amounted to an attempt to breach the charter and Abia South people's rights which they said, would be unfair and not workable.

The group expressed its confidence in Ikpeazu, their son, because of his achievements in one year of being in office even in the face of lean resources available to him.

The union further condemned and rejected the judgment of Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja which disqualified Ikpeazu as PDP's governorship candidate in the 2015 election, describing the ruling as perverse.

It also condemned INEC’s “hasty issuance of Certificate of Return” to Uche Ogah while Ikpeazu was awaiting Certified True Copy of the said judgment to be released to enable him take needed action and called for urgent investigation of all persons involved in the hole saga with a view to punishing them.

The Communique was signed by representatives of the Local Governments, including the Leader, Elder Emma Adaelu and the Chairman, His Royal Highness, Eze Love Nwogu as well as the Secretary-General, Chief Godfery Akara.

Adaelu disclosed that members of the group made efforts to ensure reason prevailed, but the litigants, Friday Nwosu and Uche Ogah, ignored them because of their desperation for power and went to court. He, however, was optimistic that they would not succeed in removing Ikpeazu from office.
