The Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu, PhD has sent a warm message of congratulations to his Imo State Counterpart, Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha on his resounding victory and reaffirmation of his mandate by the Imo State Elections Petitions Tribunal yesterday.
Governor Ikpeazu who described Governor Ihedioha as “my brother and bosom friend”, stated that his judicial victory is a clear sign that indeed, the good people of Imo State spoke with a voice that was loud and unmistakable.
Coming a day after his own election was reaffirmed by the Judiciary, Ikpeazu described it as beyond mere coincidence but a confirmation that the people of the two states have a common destiny strengthened by common historical and ancestral ties.
Ikpeazu assured Ihedioha that the excellent and brotherly relations between them will become even more strengthened now for the good of the people of the two sister states. He also told him to remain focused on his developmental agenda for his people and like him, bear no grudges against those who challenged his mandate but to open his doors and embrace them for the overall peace, order and good government of the people of Imo State.
Governor Ikpeazu also rejoiced with the entire people of Imo State, whose collective choice of Governor Emeka Ihedioha has received confirmation from the judiciary.
