The Abia State Chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) has described 2019 as a year of liberation of the people of Abia from the clutches of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) misrule in the state.
The APC, in its new year message, thanked Abians for their cooperation and wished them successful entrance into the New Year.
In a statement by its Publicity Secretary in the state, Comrade Benedict Godson, APC pleaded with Abians to exercise patience as their sufferings will soon be over following the defeat that awaits what it described as the anti-people government of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abia.

The statement quoted the state leadership of APC as advising Governor Okezie Victor Ikpeazu to begin to pack his loads in readiness to vacate the Umuahia Government House for a suitable, God-sent liberator in the person of Dr. Uche Sampson Ogah, who according to it, will take the state to its real height.
The message reads: “It’s a New Year and everything about this year must be totally new in our state. For us here, it’s a year of total liberation and transformation. Our people have endured a lot from the PDP. Our people have suffered a lot, but there’s always a time to say it’s enough.
“Abians should start now to feel the change that’s coming our ways. From the campaigns down to the main election, we urge them work, vote and see the devastating downfall of their oppressors and return all glory to God at the end.
“Every citizen of this state and those dwelling in the state who are not comfortable with where we are currently languishing in this terrible condition as a result of bad governance, must as a matter of commitment and patriotism play roles necessary towards this incoming liberation and transformation.
“God has already sent us someone that will make things easier and better for us. We urge Abians to understand that no one can give what he doesn’t have.
“The emergence of Dr. Uche Sampson Ogah, an industrialist and an employer of labour as governorhsip candidate in a state that’s begin for the revival of her industrial prowess and revitalization of her commercial and business status is not a mere coincidence.
“This is God sending us a liberator of which all we need to do as a people is to believe and work together with him to rescue Abia from the shackles of this reckless and incompetent government currently being run by group of people that are allergic to giving the people good things, but enjoy watching our people suffer.
“The PDP should start packing their loads. Their fraudulent tactics and picture project strategy has failed woefully. Every agent of stagnation and backwardness is not needed in Abia and that’s what PDP is.
“Abia State must be liberated and APC is the answer. We shall match and beat them in all ramifications. They know very well that we are not a party they can bully around and intimidate hide or shy away from the real game when it all begin.
“There’ll be no hiding space for all their incompetent candidates and oppressors of NdiAbia who just wants to remain in power as if it’s their birthrights.
“They’ll be thoroughly swept aside by the heavy wind of change that’s whistling from afar to whom it may concern to stay clear off the path of change or be swept away.”
