The Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Chinedum Orji, has called on his Colleagues at the Assembly and all the appointees of the Governor to rise to the occasion, work hard and ensure that the Governor concludes his tenure on the high.
The Speaker stated this during a post budget presentation joint meeting of the Governor, the Assembly Members, State Exco Members and other appointees of the Governor who came with him to the Assembly for the 2021 budget presentation.
According, “No man can do this work alone. Mr Governor relies on all of us for him to succeed. That responsibility now lies more on his appointees to help him bring his vision to fruition. You must all work in one accord so that his government will continue to record greater successes.
“On our part as the Legislative Arm, we have and shall continue to demonstrate sufficient goodwill to Mr Governor and give him all the necessary support he needs to finish strong. We are not in any way ready to relent on that.
Continuing, the Speaker added, “the House under my leadership shall therefore not hesitate to keep making the necessary laws, and oversight on all appointees to ensure the people get value for the confidence they have reposed in our dear Governor. His success is also our collective success. Let everyone do their part”.
