LP Group Endorses PDP's Ahiawe For Guber Polls In Abia

Barely three days to the gubernatorial election slated for this coming Saturday, some prominent members of the Labour Party in the Abia State have thrown their weight behind the Peoples Democratic Party's candidate, Chief Okey Ahaiwe promising to work together for his success at the gubernatorial poll on March 11.

The group, which comprises various grassroots coordinators of the Labour Party issued a joint statement signed by 10 coordinators declaring their unalloyed support for the PDP's candidate as their sole candidate in the context on Saturday.

The group noted that Ahaiwe stands on a higher pedestal than any other candidates including Labour Party's Dr. Alex Otti, whom they claimed is having alleged character deficiency.

"These two qualities stand Chief Okey Ahaiwe out in this election: Credibility and strong character to continue on his previous legacy as an astute administrator", the group stated.    

The group further enumerated some of the achievements of Okey Ahiwe while he was serving in the cabinet of the current regime led by Governor Ikpeazu.

The group, however, said among other things that  "Okey Ahiwe was at the centre of all Governor Ikpeazu’s modest achievements in office". 

The achievements include: Sustaining peace and security in Abia State, coming on stream of Geometric Power Station which now provides steady power to Aba, made in Aba Shoe/leatherworks industry where Governor Ikpeazu popularized the “Made in Aba” brand, by sending Aba shoemakers for overseas industrial training, mechanization of the Aba shoe industry by importing new machinery that enhanced production, bringing of Chinese expatriates to Aba, for the training of  Aba Shoemakers on the use of the imported machines.

"This endorsement is based on Ahaiwe's unblemished track record of service and our commitment to the promotion of good governance 

"We insist on supporting credible candidates across party lines, that is why we have endorsed Ahiwe, a man with a verifiable and unblemished track record just like our principal,  Peter Obi", the group emphasised.

Therefore, we urge Ndi Abia to vote Ahiawe based on these unique qualities: Credibility and continuity.
