Despite four years unpaid arrears of leave and promotion allowances for the civil servants in Abia state, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has been shown what might pass for unmerited favour from his workforce which donated a vehicle to him in support of his re election bid.
The governor on Wednesday convened a meeting with the entire workforce of the state which his government has tactically separated from the public servants due to unpaid salary arrears at the Nnamdi Azikiwe state secretariat at Ogurube layout, Umuahia.
Governor Okezie Ikpeazu who hitherto had no reason to interface with the workforce until now, called on Abia civil servants to continue to sustain his developmental agenda in the State by voting massively for his party the PDP on Saturday the 9th of March during the governorship and state Assembly elections.
He acknowledged the efforts and contributions of the workers since he assumed office, and pointed out that they were the reason he achieved the much he could in four years.
He highlighted some of his plans for the next dispensation if re elected and went on to promise the workers of his resolve to fix the secretariat structures and amenities needed there just two months to the end of his tenure.

He thanked the civil servants for the support the administration enjoys from them, saying that with the kind of love shown by the civil servants for the government, himself and his boss should hope they have the entire votes of the workers.
