Lagos - Save Abia Now (SAN), the political pressure group, has called on the State Governor, Victor Ikpeazu, to address the plight of the suffering Abia State workers amid a backlog of salaries.
Director of Media and Publicity of the group, Kelechi Nkworie, called on the Governor to forfeit its unaccounted security votes for months to enable him pay the backlog of workers salary owned by his predecessor not slashing his salary.
“After one month in office, Dr Ikpeazu has not paid Abia workers salary he promised to pay 24th of every month. He promised to cut his salary and transport allowance and people are shouting the Messiah has come and he goes home with over N500 million monthly security vote,” Nkworie argued.

“Yes he is moving with jet speed and gave out about seven roads to be constructed to his political godfather and godson companies without due process for the contract award and Budgetary Allocation,” Nkworie said.
“Ikpeazu has started failing 95 percent of his campaign promises to Abians .His political aids he appointed are the same people that almost led Abia to a point of extinct, and then tell me the magic he will perform.”
Comment could not be obtained from the Governor.
