Okezie Ikpeazu, the governor of Abia state, has explained why he lives in a three-bedroom flat in Aba, the state capital.
The governor claims that he wants to live among his people and become accustomed to life outside of power.
“I have spent time in my lodge in Aba. It is a three-bedroom apartment. I don’t know how many governors can reside in this kind of place. “But I stay here because I want to keep my eyes on the fact that I’m the Governor today, but I will not be the Governor tomorrow.
“I won’t take myself too far away from how I live my life. I will work hard to the point that somebody coming after me will find it difficult to operate unless he is running on this same lane.”He said
