One of the governorship aspirants for the 2015 governorship election in Abia State, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, has stepped down for Dr Okezie Ikpeazu ahead of the December governorship primaries of the PDP.

Abaribe, who is currently representing Abia South in the Senate, declared his support for Ikpeazu when the later visited him in his Otuonu Villa in Ohuru in Obingwa Sunday night.

Abaribe withdrawal is coming after the people of Obingwa presented Ikpeazu as their sole candidate for the governorship election, at a reception held in his honor at Itu-Ngwa primary school in Obingwa last Friday.

Addressing both his supporters and supporters of Ikpeazu, Abaribe said: "I have no personal issue with you (Ikpeazu). I will lead your campaign."

In a related development, the Ukwa la Ngwa traditional rulers led by Eze Eberechi Dick and Ukwa la Ngwa Leaders of Thought led by Elder Emma Adaelu, have also settled for Ikpeazu as the sole candidate of the Ukwa-Ngwa people for the 2015 election.

The group made this known after an elaborate meeting held at the palace of Eze Dick, who is also the Chairman of Abia State Council of Traditional Rulers.

According to Adaelu, who spoke at the meeting, the people of Ukwa-Ngwa will organise a one million man match to Umuahia, where Ikpeazu will be presented to the rest Abians as the candidate of Ukwa-Ngwa for the 2015 elections.
