Ubani, who was reacting to calls for the cancellation of the governorship election, said that such calls were not in the best interest of the state.
According to him, instead of rejecting Ikpeazu’s re-election, they should join hands with him to rebuild Abia state.
“But if they have decided as they did in 2015 to always bring confusion and take Abia backwards, they are free but they should remember that 2019 is not 2015,” Ubani said.
He thanked all PDP members and people of the state for contributing to the success of the party and promised that in this second tenure; Ikpeazu would make Abia better by working harder.
NAN reports that Dr Uche Ogah of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Dr Alex Otti of the All People’s Grand Alliance (APGA) call on INEC to cancel governorship election in Abia.
They alleged electoral result manipulation using same returning officer, Prof Benjamin Ozumba of the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) also allegedly used in 2015 by INEC to rig Abia elections in 2019 election.
Meanwhile, the Environmental Health Department of Aba South Local Government Area (LGA) on Monday celebrated Ikpeazu’s re-election with a march across some streets in Aba while exhibiting fireworks.
Mrs Onyinyechi Nwigwe, Director, Environmental Health Department, Aba South LGA said they were celebrating Ikpeazu’s re-election because Abia had a relatively peaceful election during the last elections.
She expressed optimism that God would give Ikpeazu wisdom to do more, rebuild Obohia, Ohanku, Port Harcourt roads, and provide more roads, better health facilities and paid attention to workers welfare.
Mrs Chinazo Nwosu, a businesswoman in Aba said “It is good that the elections have come and gone and those who won have won, now let them face governance.
“We want to hear something different on radio, TV and in reality. We want to see the political leadership at all levels change the story and lives of the people. We are tired of politicking everyday”.
Fidelis Nwokedi, a resident said that whosoever won the election should be focused and create a better environment for business and living for Abians.
He expressed happiness over Ikpeazu’s victory but urged him to construct more roads, give the city pipe-borne water and create enabling environment for businesses to thrive in the state.(NAN)
