Ikpeazu and other candidates of the party in the coming elections whom he

will work with in Abuja to better the lots of Abia people and Nigerians.

are given to him to work with.

Sports Club, the President stated that Aba needs a lot of federal

government presence.

made it clear that Aba needs a lot of federal government presence.

who he said have supported him fully, pointing out that he is stronger

politically in the South East than in any other part of the country.

He promised to do his best to uplift the South East zone and to address

the issue of power in Aba and other matters affecting the city which he

said had been brought to his attention by the State Governor including

converting the Abia Polytechnic, Aba to a federal institution.

The President assured that he will quickly wade into the problem hindering

the take off of the Geometrics power company with a view to resolving it.

In his speech, Governor Theodore Orji thanked the President for finding

time to visit Aba before the election, at least to give confidence to Aba

people that he cares for them and reassured him that Abia vote will be

intact for him.
Also, the National Chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Adamu Mu'azu expressed

confidence that Abia people will vote for President Jonathan and the Party

and promised that greater attention will be paid to Aba during the second

tenure of President Jonathan.
In their separate speeches, representatives of the various business bodies

including the Aba Chamber of Commerce, Mines and Agriculture ACCIMA,

Medical Doctors and the traders union among others pleaded with the

President to address the issue of power and other infrastructural

challenges in Aba and pledged to vote overwhelmingly for PDP.
