Abia Governor-elect Begs Sycophant Lobbying To Pay Courtesy Visits, To Stay Away

by Chukwu Obi

The Abia State governor-elect, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, has placed temporary ban on courtesy visits by his supporters. He said the ban would enable him to plan adequately for the task ahead.

Ikpeazu, in a press statement personally signed by him, thanked Abia residents for voting him into power but pleaded with those jostling to pay him courtesy visits to give him some breathing space so he could prepare for the job he was elected to do.

The statement read in part, “I wish to thank all those who have felicitated with me in one way or the other since I was declared winner but plead for the understanding of all those who are planning courtesy calls that I shall no longer be available to receive any delegation coming with the intention to congratulate me.

“Because of the enormity of the task ahead, I require all the time I can get to plan to ensure that I justify the enormous confidence you have all reposed in me.”

Our correspondent reported that Ikpeazu’s country home at Umuobiakwa in Obingwa has become a Mecca of sorts since after the governorship election as individuals and groups continue to pay visits to the governor-elect.

Various entertainment groups and dancing troupes have also been having a field day with free feeding a daily routine for all visitors.
