“Labour is Abia and Abia state is Labour.” This is the center of industry in the South East, the workers and the artisans own this state and still retain the force not to mess with, perhaps they have forgotten and now we are here to remind them.”

As arrangement towards the 2023 electoral year gains momentum, Labour Party, Abia state chapter has reiterated its commitment to end the ongoing humiliation and abandonment of the work force in Abia state, from state institutions to private establishments, artisans and students.

In a statement issued by the Publicity Secretary, Comrade Njoku SaintJerry A, “Labour is the engine wheel that has kept Abia in existence, to watch that structure destroyed by individuals I will considered ‘unfortunate political lackeys’, I mean even if you were ‘appointed’ or ‘anointed’ to hold forte for a particular set of individuals or group, common sense demands that you should be able to spot the stark difference between black and white.”

I can’t imagine holding the workers in the state to ransom to the point that an entire public institution as remarkably useful as the Abia State Teaching University Hospital (ABSUTH) is abandoned to rot away both in infrastructure and its workforce, neglecting the workers and owing them up to 25 months’ salary while the government and its circle of political elites live in pomp and luxury – This is not acceptable and should be condemnable by every rational human being.”

The Okezie Ikpeazu (Phd) led government had in previous media stunts attributed the public outcry of workers in the state to the work of oppositions, now that the Nigeria Medical Association, NMA, has delisted the ABSUTH adding to the loss of revenue to the state and increasing the lack of access to quality healthcare by all and sundry in the state and taking the state further down the ranking of developmental index is that still the work of opposition, I ask.”

“This is what Labour Party do not wish to continue to tolerate because Abia state, as one of the frontline South East state was built on commerce and industry, the hall mark of labour, therefore it will be an aberration to sit and watch Abia continue to descend this low while we fold our hands analyzing and jive talking from the comforts of our individual corners. Said comrade Njoku.

“People in authority cannot continue to neglect the teachers, the health workers, the students, the artisans, traders and the environment in which commerce and trade should thrive and expect the people to continue to clap and celebrate them”

Speaking on the power of incumbency, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been in the leadership saddle of the state for virtually all the political dispensation of the state and still confident to replicate their victory as in previous years despite the public outcry of failures of competent leadership, However, Comrade Njoku disagrees with that, in his statement; “APC is considered as the grand opposition to PDP across Nigeria, alright but not in Abia state.” He said.

“Labour is Abia and Abia state is Labour.” This is the center of industry in the South East, the workers and the artisans own this state and still retain the force not to mess with, perhaps they have forgotten and now we are here to remind them. The politicians may have underscored that, but not anymore.” Said Comrade Njoku.

We have not forgotten the famous “Aba made” which is still in existence despite the media hype of non-existent infrastructures to support business here yet the people of Enyimba city (Aba) has remain resilient and resolute in all their efforts to survive the harsh realities influenced by those in authorities who should know better but chose to play the politics of misery and poverty. They chose to impoverish the workforce so that it is easier to divide the ranks and use people for all the negative causes.”

“This is what Labour Party do not wish to continue to tolerate because Abia state, as one of the frontline South East state was built on commerce and industry, the hall mark of labour, therefore it will be an aberration to sit and watch Abia continue to descend this low”

According to Njoku Saintjerry, “it is not campaign season yet but at the right time we shall unveil what we call the ‘David of Abia’ because Abia is reckoned as “God’s own state’ and I want to believe and very certain that those who named Lagos as “Center of Excellence” and named Abia as “God’s own state’ are not mistaken.” This is the time for God’s own people and in due time we shall map out plans on how to completely overhaul the entire system that has brought this God’s own state to its knees in shame.

“People in authority cannot continue to neglect the teachers, the health workers, the students, the artisans, traders and the environment in which commerce and trade should thrive and expect the people to continue to clap and celebrate them, that is not acceptable therefore I am using this medium to encourage every indigen of Abia state to rise up and do what is necessary to take their homeland back from stooges and lackeys that will never, ever think of the people but to do the bidding of those who anointed them and places them in positions of leadership for selfish and wicked interests.” Said Njoku.
