Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State has described his victory, last night at the Supreme Court, as an impetus for more work and more services to the people of Abia State and Nigeria.
He further described it as the victory of God, the victory of justice, the victory of David over Goliath and the victory of the common masses, adding that there is no victor and no vanquished.
The Governor said in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary Godwin Adindu that
he needed to get out of the distractions of legal tussles so he will focus his attention and channel all his energies on service delivery and thanked the supreme court for giving him the impetus to continue with his revolution of rebuilding the state.
Quoting from the Bible, specifically Galatians 6:17 and repeating after Paul of Tarsus, the Governor said: “From now on, let no one trouble me, for I bear in my body the marks of my lord Jesus.”
He promised that with the distractions over, the tempo of infrastructural renewal drives in the state will be accelerated in the days ahead.
Ikpeazu waved an olive branch to all his detractors and advised them to shield their sword and join him in his crusade of development for Abia State, warning that nobody should trouble him again.
The Governor also thanked the people of Abia State for their support and doggedness throughout the campaigns, the elections and the legal battle that have stressed the entire state, adding that there is now light at the end of the tunnel.
He reaffirmed his covenant with the people and maintained that his victory is a clarion call for greater stewardship to the people of Abia, noting that he will remain consistent with his vision of putting the people first.
