In Akwa ibom, Rivers, Ebonyi, Anambra Enugu states, etc, lands are acquired by government to build capital projects such as universities, airports, hospitals, etc.

But in Abia State, lands are acquired to be selfishly shared amongst seven individuals. 

What capital projects did the Abia state government do with huge lands they amassed such as Mba Isii, NTA Aba, Veterinary, Eziama, Azikiwe Road Primary School, etc?

The government shared such lands to failures who couldn’t even pay for house rents or make average huts for themselves (before this government came to be) just so long as they are friends, family and political allies of the governor – Okezie Ikpeazu. 

Imagine, Acho Nwakanma (the governor’s brother in-law) and his wife fenced 30 plots of land at Mba Isii. Nkechi ikpeazu (wife of the governor) fenced 50 plots at the same Mba Isii. These are major beneficiaries though, but I know a friend who was a counsellor in Ward 4 In 2018 that was given two plots free of charge in my ancestral land. 

What about Ahia Udele (Waterside) dem don share am?

Abiapoly was supposed to be relocated to Aro Ngwa, School of Health to Umuobiakwa, Abia Airport to Owerrinta.

Good ideas. 

Whatever happened to them?

I keep asking myself, whom did we offend in Abia State?

What exactly is our offence to be punished by bad leaders?
