The security situation in our zone and other parts of the country continues to be a cause for concern. Fortunately, the 2023 elections ushered in a new government which has demonstrated a very strong commitment to the development of our dear state.

We have observed and continue to observe progressive governance in several critical areas of development for which we are thankful. Our prayers are with the government of His Excellency Dr. Alex Chioma Otti, OFR that they will stay the course and bring rapid development and prosperity to our state and its people.

The expectations are high, and we pray that the requisite strength and wisdom needed to accomplish these tasks will not be lacking.

I encourage all Abians to support and encourage the new administration, giving its officials time to perform. However, the government must recognize that as citizens, we will continue to hold them accountable through constructive criticism and the offering of alternative solutions to the state’s problems.

On behalf of my family, my Party the All Progressives Grand Alliance and myself, I extend our best wishes and prayers to all indigenes of the state for 2024.

May it be a year of new breakthroughs, advancements, and success in all our endeavors, leading to massive development of our dear God’s own State, Abia.

Once again, Happy New Year.
