    According to him, “when persuasion fails, it must not be
    carried too far”, so as not to cause more harm to the polity.
    “APC must also stop threatening [Ike] Ekweremadu and
    must realize that his position is a bitter pill which the party
    must swallow to survive.

    “APC must not forget that the same structure which
    brought Ekweremadu to office also brought Saraki on
    board and this group/alliance is greater in number”, he

    He also reminded the ruling APC that “the party has no
    powers in any law to choose for members of the National

    Agbazuere who is immediate past information
    commissioner in Abia State, also faulted the figure being
    published in the media as the number months workers in
    the state are being owed salary.

    Accordinf to him, the core civil servants are not owed more
    than three months while workers in parastatals are owed
    about 5 months, insisting that no worker in the state is
    owed nine months salary arrears.

    “It is therefore wrong, mischievous and an act of blackmail
    against the state and the past administration for any one to
    make a generalization to say that Abia workers are owed 9
    or 10 months’ salary arrears.

    “It is my view and I so hold that the picture of the salary
    issue of Abia State workers should not be maliciously
    presented in the media.

    I am confident that Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has the zeal
    and sagacity to address the problems and I urge Abians to
    give him maximum support, cooperation and
    understanding as the state addresses the consequences of
    the drop in revenue”, the former commissioner said.
