During the thanksgiving service held on Sunday, May 31, 2015 in honour of the newly sworn in Governor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, at the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Eastern Union Conference Headquarters in Aba, the governor fired off a warning and declared war on anyone who is planning to stand in the way of his service to the people of the state.

Governor Ikpeazu stressed that his adminstration was ready to step on the toes of anybody just for the state to succeed.

He said; “If your legs are on the way, remove them before my arrival, in order not to have your toes stepped on. I want God to make Abians to understand that if you want to eat an omelette, you must be ready to crack eggs.

“I thank God that I am courageous enough to take these decisions. God being with me, I will serve Abia and the people of Nigeria with the fear of God.

“I will also take decisions that may not be very palatable but will let the guiding principle be, “Is it in the best interest of the greater majority of our people?”

The governor assured the people that his administration would not be business as usual while emphasizing that it was time for the people of Abia to turn around. The governor informed the congregation that he would report for duty at Aba on Monday, June 1, 2015 and visit the state capital Umuahia on Tuesday, June 2.

“We have traveled so long on the wrong path, probably by events not caused by governments but caused by our people. This is the time to turn around because this is not going to be business as usual.

“We must change the way we think, the way we do things, the way we build our houses, we must have respect for our neighbors; in doing so, we will be more responsible,” he added.
