“My Successor Must Carry His Own Cross”-Says Gov. Ikpeazu


The Governor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has said that anyone that wants to succeed him must carry his or her own cross.

Ikpeazu in a recent interview (not with this platform), while answering why he said that he is going to be neutral in choosing his successor, stated that he would not be carrying the cross for his successor.

The Abia number one citizen stated that he would not allow the choice for a successor distract him from delivering dividend of democracy to Abians, said “I don’t want to abridge my tenure because I am expecting anybody to come. Let the person who wants to take over go and carry his cross; I won’t carry anybody’s cross for him.”

Continuing Ikpeazu said “I have said time and again that I dare to be different in many respects.

“My position in this particular instance is that all those who influenced the emergence of their successor, 99 per cent of them are not happy.

“My faith in God has revealed to me that power is important and crucial that God cannot leave it entirely in the hands of men. So, why would I want to do that which God would ordinarily want to do?


“Those are my comments for now. But I want to say that these months, these remaining months, as far as I am concerned are as important as my first month in office. I need to focus and work hard for the remaining months of my tenure.

“Yesterday, as late as 11pm, I was monitoring what was happening at Opobo road in Aba. My contractors were out there working; you hardly can see a second term governor rolling out contractors working by 11pm in the night.
