Ahead of the 2023 general election, Abia State Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has revealed that only God would decide his successor.

Ikpeazu assured the people of the state that he would be neutral in deciding who succeeds him as governor.

The governor, however, indicated that he would prefer a successor with passion, humility and self-denial.

Speaking in Aba, the state capital, the governor explained that such qualities would allow him to create a platform that will engage all types of people, including young people, women, the disabled and the oppressed.

He remembered how no one gave him a chance in 2015, but God made it happen.

Ikpeazu insisted that power is a serious matter that God will not completely leave in the hands of men.

He said: “The question of who will succeed me in 2023 lies entirely within the purview of God, but all men in my position will pray for a successor who will uphold his legacies and have good intentions for the people of the state and also do better . of what I’ve done.

“I will want to see a successor who is passionate enough, not self-centered, and humble enough to create a platform that engages all kinds of people; the lame, the blind, the young, the woman, the oppressed and all the people.

“And for it to happen, I trust and believe in what God can do. At all times as governor I try to emphasize some virtues and traits that I think we need to grow to get ahead. I will not want to be in a place where I will literally determine who will be governor, I will not because I know I cannot because mine is a divine mandate.

“Nobody gave me a chance, but God made it happen. So God can also raise someone. Power is such a serious matter that God will not leave it entirely in the hands of men.

“Maybe if I have expectations, I will let it happen, but I will be neutral enough to accept whatever decision God makes.”
