Ukwa/ngwa Leaders, Abia South PDP Commend T.A Orji. by obinalihe: 7:43pm On Jul 12, 2014
Ukwa/Ngwa Leaders, Abia South PDP Commend Orji.
Prominent political leaders from Ukwa/Ngwa area
of Abia State have commended Governor Theodore
Orji of Abia State for declaring that the
governorship seat of the state, will move to Abia
South Senatorial District, and not just Ukwa/Ngwa,
in 2015.
Orji, who at the beginning of his second term,
promised to handover to an Ngwa man, declared
last week, during the swearing-in of the newly
appointed Transition Committee chairmen for the
seventeen local government areas of the state in
Umuahia, that power will move to Abia South in
His words: “I am a product of rotation. If there was
no rotation I may not be governor today. I must
continue with rotation because power moved from
Abia-North to Abia-Central, and must go to South.
“It is incumbent on me because failure to do that
will be injustice to myself and my party. It is fair to
both God and man.”
Reacting to the development, a political leader of
Ukwa/Ngwa, Chief Emmanuel Adaelu said: "I want
to express my sincere thanks to our dear
Governor, Chief TA Orji, because he is a man of his
"During his second missionary journey as
governor, we gave him our total support to ensure
his re-election in 2011, and he promised our
people that he will handover to an Ngwa man.
Since then, we have been waiting for him to make
this pronouncement, now he has made it
emphatically clear to Abians that power will move
to Abia South, and not just Ukwa/Ngwa in 2015.
"I am very happy and my people, both the Ngwa
people in Abia Central and the Ukwa/Ngwa people
in Abia South, are happy.
"Governor Orji is a man of equity, and we respect
him. I know that so many people have been putting
pressure on him, trying to dissuade him not to do
this, but he has done it right."
Adaelu added: "I am one of the early supporters of
PDP and our party supports the policy of zoning.
The former governor came from Abia North, the
present Governor, Chief TA Orji is from Abia
Central, therefore, it is imperative and justifiable in
compliance with the PDP policy that power moves
to Abia South in 2015.
"His declaration of support for Abia South is a
major step in actualising our quest for an Abia
governor from the Ngwa extraction."
Adaelu, who is from the Ngwa areas in Abia central
stressed that: "I was one of the people that
supported zoning among the three senatorial
districts in Abia State, and I insist on that
irrespective of the fact that I am from Abia Central.
Again I will not deny that fact that the movement
began from Abia north, moved to my senatorial
district, Abia Central, with our dear governor who
is on the saddle now, therefore equity and good
policy demands that we all support the movement
to Abia South in 2015, and that is what we will do."
On the issue of aspirants from outside Abia South,
Adaelu said that there is nothing wrong for
anybody to aspire, but stressed that: "At the right
time, the leaders of the people will take a stand
and whatever stand we take, will decide what will
"Anybody aspiring to be governor in 2015 from
Abia central or Abia north should know that it is the
turn of the Abia South to produce the governor for
us in 2015. Abia central cannot produce two
governors in succession that is why it should go to
Abia South that is what equity demands.
"We are pulling the bulks of people from Aba zone
to support whoever emerges. I am speaking the
minds of my people." Adaelu said.
Barrister Chibuike Nwokeukwu, another frontline
Ngwa political leader from Abia Central, also
commended Governor Orji, and said that political
leaders and traditional rulers in Ukwa/Ngwa are
already perfecting plans to summon all Ngwa
governorship aspirants to a meeting where the
aspirants will be advised on the need for a
His words: "The agitation for power shift to Abia
South in 2015 is real, the declaration by Governor
TA Orji makes it more real. Being a man I know
whatever he says, within his competence,
Governor TA Orji will do it, I commend him for
what he has done. We are happy."
He continued: "The governor's declaration does
not mean that he has chosen a candidate, no, it is
the party that will choose the candidate.
"I also know the old saying that a tree does not
make a forest, but a tree can give an indication
where a forest should be."
He said that those who have indicated interest in
the governorship race are qualified, however he
cautions the aspirants to be mindful of the fact that
all of them will not be governor at once.
"Every one of them who has indicated interest to
be governor is qualified to be, but the truth about it
is that only one person will be governor at a time,
so all we have to do as leaders of the community,
is to invite these our sons and daughters that have
indicated interest for governorship and say to
them; ladies and gentlemen, this is time for us to
be reasonable about this thing."
In a related development, the Abia South PDP has
passed a vote of confidence on the Governor Orji,
and promised an unflinching support to his
