Ikpeazu, Abia Governor, Supports Anyim’s Presidential Bid


Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State has backed the Presidential aspiration of the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim.

The Governor stated this at his country home in Umuobiakwa, Obingwa Local Government Area of the state on Sunday, when he received Anyim who came to consult him over his presidential aspiration.
Ikpeazu described Anyim “as a man whose public service credentials and experience are good enough for the Presidency of Nigeria.”
He assured Anyim of his support as the next Nigerian President of South-East extraction, noting that “what matters now is just for the Igbos to be given a chance to produce the next Nigerian President.
“No other tribe in Nigeria has demonstrated practical belief in the Nigerian nation better than the Igbos as can be seen from the fact that our people live and invest heavily in every part of the country.”
Ikpeazu added that in the South East and indeed across the country today, “the credentials of Senator Anyim stand very tall”.
Earlier, Anyim who was also a former President of Nigerian Senate, said he came to formally inform Ikpeazu and the party leadership in the state of his plans to contest for the Presidency of the country in the 2023 elections.
According to him, the South East was the most qualified zone in Nigeria to produce the next President, based on equity and justice.
Anyim said that he decided to make himself available for the contest “after a careful analysis of my antecedents, experience, passion and wide contacts across the country.”
He called for the support of the governor and the party in the State, assuring that he would be a candidate and a President that Nigeria would be proud of.
