The media aide to Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, Godwin Adindu has said that the governor was poised to demystify governance in the state. Adindu disclosed this while on a familiarisation visit to Magic FM, Aba.
It will be recalled that Governor Ikpeazu recently directed that the appellations: “His Excellency” and “Executive”, be dropped in all official and informal communications with him.
The governor said he would rather prefer to be addressed simply as “Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, Governor of Abia State”.
The governor wants all public communication to be concentrated on the work and policies of the state and not on the person of the governor. He therefore directed all contractors, political groups, individuals and party loyalists not to put his portrait on billboards, posters and signage but to only use the pictures of ongoing projects in their billboards and posters.
Speaking further on the issue, Adindu said the government was not going to go into media hype, adding “we are going to use those funds for media hype to develop the state”.
The Chief Press Secretary said he was going to orchestrate a revolution in the information management in the state where the people would not be fed with bare-faced lies.
“We are going to tell the people how things are and why they are the way they are. We are going to do explanations,” he said.
Adindu continued: “The governor is not going to be created by the media rather the work he is going to do will create him. We are going to rebuild Aba because the city is the commercial- hub of the state”.
