A businessman and Chairman Fundvine securities and investment group ltd, Dr. Michaeal Kasarachi Enyinna has decried the decay in infrastructure and lack of basic and necessary amenities required to make businesses and investments grow in Abia state.
Speaking to newsmen in Umuahia on Sunday during the Eid Mubarak holidays, Dr.Enyinna expressed surprise at the state of infrastructure in Abia inspite of all the funds that has been credited to the state from the federation account within the past two years in the life of Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu administration.
In his words I was shocked seeing the huge decay in infrastructure which has seriously slowed down businesses and killed investments in the state, he expressed shock that the governor is yet to embark on serious infrastructural repairs in the state and that all he had seen in Abia especially aba is nothing but paying lip service to duty.
He decried the governor’s unseriousness to duty and wondered how he expects any investor to invest his funds in a dying and unstable economy as we have it in Abia today.
Dr Enyinna said he was surprised that while states like Ebonyi, Anambra, cross river etc. are advancing in infrastructure and investors are trooping in, what we see in Abia is hunger, decay in infrastructure especially roads, insecurity, kidnapping, robbery etc.
He advised the governor to cut short his overseas jamboree, tagged investment hunt, come home and concentrate on developing the enabling environment needed to attract investors, he said, what woos investors is the business environment and not preaching or smooth talking, he added that no serious investor both local and international will invest in Abia because the investment environment is lacking.
The security and investment expert, who hails from Ukwa, said he supported Okezie Ikpeazu PhD, during the elections believing that he will grow the state from where he met it, but unfortunately all that he had seen in every sector is depreciation and decay, he advised the governor to pay salaries and embark on road reconstruction across the state.
He went ahead to advise Ikpeazu that if he fails to improve on service delivery which at the moment is lacking, he should also forget coming back by 2019 to ask for votes as no Abian will vote for a man who could not pay salaries or improve the much needed infrastructure.
