“Call Me Dr. Ikpeazu Not His Excellency”

Special Government Announcement

The Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, has formally directed that the appellations; His Excellency and Executive be dropped in all official and informal communication  with him.

He would rather prefer to be addressed  simply as Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, Governor of Abia State.

The Governor wants all public  communication to be concentrated  on the work and policies of the state and not on the person of the Governor and has therefore directed  all contractors, political groups, individuals and  party loyalists not to put his portrait on billboards, posters and signages  but to ONLY use the pictures of ongoing projects in their billboards and posters.  

The Governor has also directed the general public  to remove all congratulatory posters and election billboards littering the environment as these public posters are defacing the environment of the state. He has further charged the people of the State to be partners with Government in ensuring a healthy and beautiful environment. 

He is also,  by this directive, re-assuring the good people of Abia State of his mission of service to the people and therefore urged the citizenry to  key into the  new vision.
