Ikpeazu Says 2023 Election About Choosing Life Over Death

Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State has described the 2023 general election as a case of choosing life over death.

Ikpeazu said this during the kick off of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaigns in Benue State.

The Governor is part of the G-5 Governors including Nyesom Wike of Rivers state, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu, Seyi Makinde of Oyo state and the host, Samel Ortom of Benue state.

Speaking to the crowd at IBB Square Makurdi, Governor Ikpeazu said:, “The issue at stake today is about us in Benue State choosing life over death and we have seen the efforts Governor Ortom has made to cry about our plight here in Benue State.

“Anybody who takes us away from our farms, takes our lives away, therefore, I will ask and urge the people of Benue state to follow Governor Ortom; ‘follow who know road; no follow somebody wey no know road.’

“I believe that Ortom is the Moses of PDP that will take Benue to Canaan land.

"My prayer is that Benue people will be wise once again so that they will follow Titus Uba, the governorship candidate of PDP and all our candidates in PDP.”

On his part, Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike said the G5 governors came to support Ortom because he is a man who believes his people and is ready to die for them.

“Your Governor is a man who believes in his people.

"Your Governor is a man who can die for his people.

"He is a man who will never disappoint you no matter what because he believes first that Benue must survive.  

"And that is why all of us left  everything we were doing in our states to come and give you support, to tell you that anything Ortom tells you to do, do it. It will be for the interest of Benue State.”

Also speaking, Governor Ugwuanyi urged the people of the state to sustain support for the PDP “because it is the winning party.”
