Of particular note to us are the construction of Ugwuezi Road, Abiriba and Abiriba-Nkporo Road by Governor Ikpeazu as well as numerous other roads done by his administration in Aba that have further enabled our people to engage in their primary occupation of trade and commerce.

  2. That we further appreciate the recent re-assignment of our son, Chief John Okiyi Kalu, to the Ministry of Trade & Investment as the Honorable Commisioner as well as other appointments to our sons and daughters by Governor Okezie Ikpeazu who we know has more in stock for our people.

  3. The forum congratulates Governor Okezie Ikpeazu on his recent award as the Governor of the Year on SME Development by the New Telegraph Newspaper as well as the listing of Abia State as the third most preferred investment destination in Nigeria for the year 2020 by the Natiomal Bureau of Statistics (NBS).

12.  The Forum firmly resolved that while we appreciate the good representation by Hon Uko Nkole so far, the Ohafia/Arochukwu Federal House of Representative position in 2023 is naturally zoned to Abiriba and we hereby encourage our brothers and sisters from other communities within the constituency to, in the spirit of fairness and equity, support, at the appropriate time, the emergence of an Abiriba born candidate as the party’s flag-bearer.

  1. The Forum firmly encourages all sons and daughters of the community to feel free to contest any other political position in 2023 that is zoned to Abia North by our great party as we are confident that we have persons who are competent enough to occupy any office in the state, and our people, dead and alive, have contributed to the growth, peace and progress of the state as well as supported others in the past.

  2. The forum urges the state ministry of works to urgently intervene and fix the dilapidated Ugwu Court Road in Abiriba as well as conclude the Abiriba Ring Road project to enable our people enjoy this Yuletide season without undue hardship and threat to motorists.
