“And those responsible for the decay have gathered in APC to criticize him.
“Anambra Governor and Ebonyi State have not done better than Ikpeazu, they only needed to start new projects to consolidate efforts of their predecessors while Ikpeazu must start afresh to build drainage, tar old roads already done by others, go back to the Stadium to build standard, think in the line of helping Ariaria to get Electricity, he must start working to revive Golden guinea and provide roads to Ariaria, he must start building schools and thinking about industrialization through Enyimba Economic City.
“Ikpeazu must help our artisans to gain patronage, he must bring back Agriculture and improve our rice production. He must make sure we develop quality in our garment and shoe productions and must train teachers.
“All these, he started afresh. Kudos to Ikpeazu
