Abia State Governor,  Okezie Ikpeazu, has formally ordered that the titles – His Excellency and Executive – be dropped from all forms of communication with him, formal and informal.

Speaking via a statement issued by Godwin Adindu, his Chief Press Secretary, on Thursday, June 4, 2015 Governor Ikpeazu announced that he would prefer to be addressed as Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, Governor of Abia State.

The statement further read: “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 and has therefore directed  all contractors, political groups, individuals and  party loyalists not to put his portrait on billboards, posters and signages  but to ONLY use the pictures of ongoing projects in their billboards and posters.  

“The Governor has also directed the general public  to remove all congratulatory posters and election billboards littering the environment as these public posters are defacing the environment of the state. He has further charged the people of the State to be partners with Government in ensuring a healthy and beautiful environment. 

“He is also,  by this directive, re-assuring the good people of Abia State of his mission of service to the people and therefore urged the citizenry to  key into the  new vision.”
