AN All Progressive Congress, APC, governorship aspirant, in Abia State, Sir Friday Nwosu, has said that he will reduce the dependence of Abia on oil revenue from the federal government through reviving critical sectors that could yield high returns to the state, if elected governor in 2019.

Nwosu explained that he had the strategy to boost the state’s IGR, as well as bring back the golden era of the late premier of Eastern region, Dr. Michael Okpara, during which the economy of the region was sustained through agriculture.

Addressing APC faithful in Umuahia, Nwosu who stated that most revenue yielding sectors have been ignored by Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, stressed that he will revive the economy of the state, ensure adequate security, prompt payment of salaries and pensions and tackle corruption in governance.

“We’ll revive Abia economy. We’ll follow history. Dr. Michael Okpara introduced the Israeli method of agriculture in the Eastern Region and achieved a lot without oil money. We’ll emulate his agricultural policies in a better way. Abia will not be hungry and Abia will not owe workers neither will I watch Abia pensioners die in pain and penury while I take glory in frivolities. We will ensure prompt payment of salaries and pension, fight corruption and boost the IGR of the state.

“I’m here to offer myself to APC to adopt me as their governorship candidate in 2019 election, so that I can contest, win and remove my brother, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu who is not performing.”
