Bayelsa receives the fourth highest allocation in the country and is still a massive shithole. They have had fantastically corrupt governors only interested in embezzling funds.

Forget it! Even Donald Trump has a certificate...education is necessary for a sitting governor

This is not about success in general but being able to fulfil a particular role and its responsibilities

Fear go don dey catch Lyon even as he just won, because Bayelsan electorates are now "woke" its either you work or you are booted to the dustbin

The truth is regardless of any fight you have with a political Godfather in a State, if you perform beyond expectation then you would remain in power and even nominate your successor and get peoples vote

And to think that the phd governor ikpeazu of abia state has done better.

This Ikpeazu kerosene governor matter ehn.

Igboblog:
2019 : I Weep For Abians By Wisdom Nwedene (Must Read)

Written by Wisdom Nwedene

Yesterday, pictures of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu branded Tanker distributing free kerosene to people at Umunkpeyi and other locations circulated the social media space.


Many people were seen struggling to get the free kerosene from the tanker.

I was shocked and wept bitterly when I saw the pictures because this is no longer the Abia State I know before.

From Ikpeazu's moves by sharing free kerosene and money to Abians few days to Governorship election, it is crystal clear that he is aware that he has failed the people who entrusted him with power.


I also heard that Ikpeazu said that the dark days are over for the civil servants in Abia State and donated 10 million naira to them.

My question to the civil servants is, will Ikpeazu 10 million naira solve the pains and problems you have been through in the last three and half years?


Let me quickly recall that in the last three and half years, almost all the civil servants in every sector protested over non payments of their salaries.

Let me do flashback, in 2018, the staff of Abia State owned University teaching hospital, Aba protested and cursed Ikpeazu over non-payment of their 9months salary.

The demonstration was staged Inside the premises of the hospital.

Also, in terms of infrastructure, Ikpeazu has not done well.

Let me also draw your mind to the Osisoma Flyover being constructed by Ikpeazu for over three years now.

Despite his promise that the flyover will be completed in January 2019, the truth is that the project has been abandoned.

When it comes to good road, hospital, empowering the farmers, Ikpeazu has not delivered also.

I don't know any reason a true Abia State born should want Ikpeazu to return to the Government House when he has failed to deliver half of the promises he made in 2015.

If you come to Ebonyi State, you will see what Umahi did in terms of infrastructure . He built many flyovers, good roads and empowered farmers. That's what I expected Ikpeazu to do.


Let me make it clear that I'm not from Abia State and didn't receive a dime to pen down this article but as a journalist, I know it is imperative to speak against evils, injustice, hunger, etc when I see them.

I'm not a fan of APC but i think PDP had failed Bayelsans for years. As they try another party, let's watch there performance. There is nothing as constant as change

I think APC deliberately wanted to bury the PDP as an opposition party. They understand the extent PDP can go rigging election and they took vote rigging beyond that level.

Same with individuals, you can't be kind and friendly, when your adversary are ready to take the game to any extent, it will be tit for tat and fire for fire.

When they had the best educated people as governor like Jonathan with Ph.D what did they achieve with it? Only swamp environment, poor electricity, no water, militancy, oil bunkry, etc.
