Dr. Longman Nwachukwu – Director General of the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, Professor Greg Ibe
Former Commissioner for Lands, Abia State, Dr. Longman Nwachukwu, has said that “Abians are now ashamed to be associated with the state” due to misgovernance.
Longman who is the Director General of the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, Professor Greg Ibe, decried the deplorable condition of the state as a result of bad governance.
Addressing newsmen Tuesday in Umuahia, the former Commissioner said the time had come for “the ruling PDP to be completely obliterated from the political land space of Abia”.
Longman said that before PDP came on board, Abia was rated “the number one state but now it has been relegated to the number 36 by all indices”.
His words: ” Abians are now ashamed to own up their state of origin due to the disastrous performance of the government in power. Abia has suddenly become a pariah state.”Longman who said that APGA remained the only hope of rescuing Abia from bad governance, urged Abians not to despair.
He said that the major focus of Professor Ibe was to restore the hope of Abians and make them become proud of their state again.
” APGA is saddled with the task of leading a political crusade of overthrowing bad governance in all its ramifications”.
Longman said that the APGA governorship candidate had shown the capacity and competence to reposition the state judging from his antecedents in his private life.
The Campaign DG who noted that “over 300 Abians are currently on scholarship in Professor Ibe’s university” challenged any other governorship candidate with a similar scorecard to showcase the same.
He said that Abia under the watch of Ibe would witness a total transformation in all the sectors of the state economy.
Longman who debunked rumors over the fitness of the APGA governorship candidate said that he is medically and intellectually sound to move the state forward.
He, therefore, solicited the support of Abians for Professor Ibe who he said would end the plight of workers and pensioners over years of unpaid wages.
