The Chancellor of the prestigious Gregory University Uturu, Professor Gregory Ibe has congratulated the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) candidate for the Aba North/South federal Constituency bye-election, Hon. Chimaobi Ebisike for his resounding victory at the polls.He also congrated the leader of PDP in Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, the state PDP party chairman Rt. Hon. Asiforo Okere, all PDP members and the entire constituents of Aba North/ South Federal Constituency.
Professor Ibe was speaking when he received the cheering news of the landslide victory as announced by the INEC returning officer for the election. He said he was not surprised at the huge margin of lead by the PDP candidate given the eloquent infrastructural development the Governor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has put in place in Aba. “It is only normal that the people of Aba reciprocated such infrastructural gestures by voting the PDP” he added.
He therefore urged the Member-elect to emulate the sterling performance of the Governor, Dr. Ikpeazu and to endeavour to replicate same at the green chamber of the national assembly. He called on Abians to continue supporting the PDP as it is the only party on ground in the state which has people oriented policies.
He concluded by appreciating voters in Aba North and South Federal Constituency for conducting themselves in an orderly manner throughout the pre and election proper processes, enjoining them to continue to prayerfully support Hon Ebisike in the post election phase and reassured them that he would bring back the goods.
It will be recalled that Prof Ibe had in answer to Governor Ikpeazu’s call mobilised massive support for Hon Ebisike to ensure victory for PDP at the just concluded bye-election.
