My reputation should not be a media creation, says Ikpeazu
ABIA state governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu says his vision and reputation should not be a media creation but should be based on his capacity for work, service and performance.
Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to governor, Mr Godwin Adindu , in a statement he issued in Umuahia the state capital yesterday, said what the governor requires from the Abia and Nigerian public is their understanding , support and cooperation with his government for the successful execution of the ongoing projects in Aba and other parts of the state and not praise-singing.
Adindu stated that part of the vision of the governor now is to chart a new course for the state which involves jettisoning some old ways that do not add to governance especially as electioneering campaign and elections proper are over pointing out that “ it is now time for governance and service to the people which are the major preoccupation of Governor Ikpeazu”.
And in strict compliance to this, Adindu has notified all Radio stations and electronic media channels in the state to stop all praise-singing jingles that eulogize the name and person of Governor Ikpeazu, saying the governor abhors them.
Rather than praise-singing via jingles, Adindu urged individuals and political groups who meant well for the governor and thus wish to express their love through jingles and music to know that the governor has moved on to what Adindu tagged “another level of work and service delivery to the people”.
To the jingle producers and itinerant compact disc marketers , Adindu urged them to stop producing or playing jingles that eulogize the name of the governor but to rather, deploy their energy to other meaningful endeavors that would add value to the state.
According to the CPS: “The governor has started work in earnest. It is the vision of the governor that his reputation in government will not be a media creation but will flow naturally from his capacity for work, service and performance and that the governor is set to achieve these three values.
“ What the governor requires of members of the public and Abians now is their understanding , support and cooperation with his government towards the successful execution of the ongoing projects in Aba and other parts of the state and not praise-singing”.
