The governor of Abia state, Okezie Ikpeazu, has given reasons why he stays in a 3-bedroom apartment in the state capital, Aba.
According to the governor, he wants to live among his people and get used to life outside power.
“I have spent time in my lodge in Aba. It is a three-bedroom apartment. I don’t know how many governors can reside in this kind of place. “But I stay here because I want to keep my eyes on the fact that I’m the Governor today, but I will not be the Governor tomorrow.
“I won’t take myself too far away from how I live my life. I will work hard to the point that somebody coming after me will find it difficult to operate unless he is running on this same lane.”He said
Ikpeazu also addressed the subject of who will succeed him in 2023. He said that can only be decided by God.
He explained that nobody believed he would become governor in 2015 but God surprised everyone.
