Abia governor boasts of achieving campaign promises

11 December 2013, 20:00

Umuahia - Governor Theodore Orji of Abia said on Wednesday that he had accomplished “all major promises” made during his electioneering campaigns to the people of the state.

Orji made the statement during the 2013 prayer summit organised by an Umuahia based political pressure group, Ochendo Grassroots Solidarity Movement, in Umuahia.

He was represented by Godwin Nna, the Commissioner for Urban Renewal and Physical Planning.

Orji expressed joy that Abia now had environment that enabled key infrastructure to drive development.

“My administration has restored peace and security through total combating of kidnapping and other criminal activities across the state. We have equally tackled epileptic power supply, constructed workers’ secretariat, built several roads and relocated the three major markets in Umuahia,” he said.

The governor also listed other achievements in the area of health, youth empowerment, education and workers' welfare, noting that Abia was now closing in on other mega cities in Nigeria.

Orji, who attributed his success in office to prayers from people of the state, commended the leadership of the movement for supporting his administration.
