Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State has directed that he be simply addressed as Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, Governor of Abia State henceforth. He also directed that campaign posters and congratulatory billboards be removed from the state.

Below is the official announcement published by his media aide.

Special Government Announcement-Abia State.

The Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, has formally directed that the appellation; His Excellency and Executive , be dropped in all official and informal communication with him.

He would rather prefer to be addressed simply as Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, Governor of Abia State.

The Governor wants all public communication to be concentrated on the work and policies of the state and not on the person of the Governor and has therefore directed all contractors, political groups, individuals and party loyalists not to put his portrait on billboards, posters and signages but to ONLY use the pictures of ongoing projects in their billboards and posters.

The Governor has also directed the general public to remove all congratulatory posters and election billboards littering the environment as these public posters are defacing the environment of the state. He has further charged the people of the State to be partners with Government in ensuring a healthy and beautiful environment.

He is also, by this directive, re-assuring the good people of Abia State of his mission of service to the people and therefore urged the citizenry to key into the new vision.
