Philanthropist and hotelier, Chima Anyaso has called out mischief-makers who find it fashionable to ridicule Abia State when their States are in ‘shambles and under the control of bandits and killer herdsmen.’
Sharing this on his Facebook page on Saturday, he stated that most of the critics of Abia State are misled and knows nothing about what is on the ground in the State.
Anyaso disclosed that the Governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu is pushing the State forward even the meagre resources made available to him.
He also called on Abians to ‘desist from lending our voice and platforms to the smear campaign sponsored by unscrupulous individuals who have a sinister agenda hidden behind their so-called criticism.’
Read his full post below; well-meaning
‘I am appalled that whenever a matter concerning the Governor of Abia State is brought to public discussion, mischief-makers begin to spin certain uncomplimentary narratives using the videos showing the gentleman’s victory dance after his re-election in 2019.
Dr Okezie Victor Ikpeazu emerged victorious in a keenly contested governorship election and as a Christian, he immediately went to church to thank God for seeing him through. This is what is expected of a good Christian. The Governor then went home to his private residence where his close friends and political associates thronged to congratulate him and rejoice with him.
It is very uncharitable for anyone to seek to speak ill of the Governor for rejoicing and celebrating his victory in his own home.’
Reacting to the attention the comment of Senator representing Kogi West, Senator Smart Adeyemi, made about Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, Anyaso stated below;
‘Furthermore, Abia seems to have become the target of misled individuals who know next to nothing about what is on the ground in Abia State. It has become fashionable to target Abia as an object of ridicule by people whose states are in shambles and under the control of bandits and killer herdsmen. Abia is moving forward, the Governor is doing the best he can with the meagre resources available to him and we should give him our support so that he can finish well.
Let us desist from lending our voice and platforms to the smear campaign sponsored by unscrupulous individuals who have a sinister agenda hidden behind their so-called criticism. I will plead with all well-meaning sons and daughters of Abia to continue to give their support, let’s build the Abia of our dreams. God bless you all.
WE SHALL CONTINUE TO DANCE TO VICTORY!!! 🙏🙏🙏
