Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, has been cleared by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship Screening Committee to participate in the primary election ahead of the 2019 governorship election.

Governor Ikpeazu, who appeared before the screening committee at the South-East Zonal Headquarters of the party in Enugu State, received commendation as a worthy ambassador whose sterling performance has drawn thousands of defectors from opposition parties to PDP in Abia. He was thereafter issued with the clearance certificate.

The Committee Chairman, Chief Hanny Woko, in his remarks, said: “You’ve done very well Your Excellency. You are truly a worthy ambassador of our great party the PDP. Take a bow and go and win for us again in Abia State. Congratulations, Your Excellency.”

On his part, the South-East Zonal Chairman of the party, Chief Augustine Umahi, commended the Governor for his style of leadership and giant developmental strides, which he said contributed in making the party attractive and more popular in the zone.

He said: “Your Excellency, PDP has become more popular and attractive in the south-east because of the good which you and your brother governors in the zone are doing. From Abia to Ebonyi and here in Enugu, you people have made the party stronger with your good works. We can’t thank you enough. As party leaders in the zonal, we will do everything to ensure that our party wins in all elections in the zone in 2019.”

Speaking after his screening and clearance, Governor Ikpeazu said: “We thank our party for giving us the opportunity to serve our people in our various states. Our modest achievements in our states have been noticed and documented by our party and our people. That is why I am standing here as the only aspirant for the office of governor on the platform of the party in Abia State. I’m very sure that my brothers in Ebonyi and Enugu States are also standing unopposed. We thank our people and our party for believing in us. We see this as a challenge to do more. We will not take the trust and mandate of our people and party for granted, it is our promise not to fail or disappoint them.’
