Chief Press Secretary to Abia State Governor, Mr. Charles Ajunwa, has described the factional National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Victor Umeh and factional governorship candidate of APGA in Abia State, Dr. Alex Otti, as pathological liars and agents of destruction masquerading as politicians.
Ajunwa who condemned recent comments credited to Umeh and Otti where the duo had alleged that all the roads in Aba were in deplorable condition, said contrary to their claims that Governor Theodore Orji has constructed news roads in Aba and rehabilitated old ones more than any other previous government in the state.
He rhetorically asked: where were Umeh and Otti when His Excellency Governor Theodore Orji through his inspiring doggedness restored sanity and peace in Aba in particular and Abia in general by ending kidnapping which completely brought all activities in the state to a stand still? Where were Umeh and Otti when Governor Theodore Orji started and completed the hitherto impassable Aba/Owerri Road? Where were Umeh and Otti when His Excellency started the de-silting of drains in Aba? Where were Umeh and Otti when Governor T.A. Orji constructed the Uruakpa Road in Aba South? Where were they when Governor started and the reconstruction of Ukwu Mango section of Faulks Road Aba (1.2km)? Where were Umeh and Otti when Governor Orji started and completed the access road to Geometric Power Plant Aba? Where were they when Governor Orji restored the manhood of Abians to borrow the insightful words of Chief Ojo Maduekwe? Just to mention a few.
“It’s evident that the two APGA chieftains apart from being economical with the truth were also envious of Ochendo’s laudable and verifiable achievements which put him ahead of other past leaders of the state. Governor Orji’s remarkable achievements have won him uncountable awards and laurels from all parts of the world. He is one leader who does not believe in propaganda as a tool for governance, rather he believes in hard work and selfless service to humanity.
“One begins to wonder where Umeh, a man who cannot be trusted who after pretending to be friend of the former governor of Anambra State later dumped him, got his facts from on the state of roads in Aba. The truth is that Umeh has come to Abia with his long red cap to cause confusion and declare war against peace loving Abians. Abians no doubt have become wiser and I am convinced that they will definitely reject Umeh and his cohorts who are out to destroy the legacies put in place by the Ochendo administration.”
Ajunwa who described Otti as a failed politician, said that Abians have continued to enjoy purposeful leadership under Governor Theodore Orji since he came on board in 2007.
“Governor T.A. Orji is the father of modern Abia and no amount of propaganda and treachery can change this fact because he has through his numerous achievements endeared himself to the consciousness of all Abians who have wholeheartedly embraced his government. Governor Orji represents the true change as his style of governance is completely devoid of any form of violence. This approach has ushered in growth, development, peace and unity to God’s Own State. It only amounts to hypocrisy for Otti to claim that the “people of Abia had suffered too long because of lack of purposeful leadership.”
“Otti is taking more than he can chew as he does not have the capacity to fix anything. He should be examined by doctors to find out if he has mental challenge. In fact, if there were anything at all to be fixed in Abia, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, the PDP governorship candidate, is coming in to consolidate on Governor Theodore Orji’s laudable achievements in the state. Governor Orji has fixed many roads, he has fixed the education sector, he has fixed healthcare sector, he has fixed the agriculture sector, he liberated and secured Abia. Therefore, the likes of Umeh and Otti have nothing tangible to offer Abians rather than their skewed minds which are full of lies, deceit, envy and treachery.”
