Abia state Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, on Monday, said that the state government has unwavering commitment to excellence in delivering infrastructural development and does not believe in palliatives and half-measures.

Ikpeazu said this during the Abia 27th anniversary celebration tagged “2018 Abia Day” at the International Conference Centre, Umuahia.

He reassured Abians of his determination to deliver dividends of democracy.

“Our administration does not believe in palliatives and half-measures. We believe in doing it properly or not doing it at all. It is for this reason that all the 68 roads we have so far competed in Abia State, along with 108 ongoing ones, from the inception of our administration have come with drainages on both sides.

"It is our firm commitment that no road built during our tenure will collapse and require rebuilding and I am proud to note that all the roads which were hitherto failing every year prior to our coming into office have withstood 3 years of various elements and they are still standing strong.

"Our commitment to excellence is unwavering. We will always ensure that Abia State get the best and we will never rest until we get to that excellent destination that motivated our founding fathers to work assiduously for the creation of Abia State,” he said.

He expressed delight over the new lease of “unity, oneness and togetherness” in Abia, and expressed optimism that it would be sustained.

In an interview with journalists, some stakeholders expressed delight over the developmental strides recorded since the creation of the state and urged the state government to increase its developmental efforts.

Eze Philip Ajomiwe of Oriendu Community said that agriculture was paramount in the development of every society, adding that Abia had made considerable efforts to explore the sector.

Victoria Akanwa, a political stakeholder, said that Abia had made significant advancement in various sectors of the economy, added that there was still room for improvement.
Akanwa called on the people of the state to evolve ideas that would complement the efforts of the state government in moving Abia forward.

Another stakeholder, Dr Uju Agomoh, called on Abia people to appreciate the efforts made by Abia government in creating an enabling environment for businesses to thrive.

Agomoh noted that the present administration in the state had brought a lot of innovations, including made-in- Aba campaign and other basic infrastructure to ensure that Abia attains greater heights.

The event featured presentation of award to 36 persons who made significant marks in their professions and communities in the state.

More so, 3 secondary school students who had best results in West African Secondary School Certificate examination in Abia were presented with cash rewards of N1million each.
