Being a press release signed by Rev. Augustine Ehiemere, APGA Chairman, Abia State and made available to newsmen in Umuahia.

Rev. Augustine Ehiemere

The All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, Abia State chapter, wishes to alert Abians and the general public, that we have received intelligence about plots by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP-led administration in the state to woo and possibly poach APGA candidates of Ukwa la Ngwa extraction in the 2023 general elections to sabotage the candidature of APGA governorship candidate, Professor Greg Ibe. The masterminds of this evil scheme intend to entice the candidates particularly APGA House of Assembly candidates from Ukwa la Ngwa political bloc, with irresistible financial inducements. 

According to our intelligence, their plan is to lure the affected APGA candidates with such heavy financial offers to help deliver PDP governorship candidate, Professor Uche Ikonne in their respective constituencies. They equally promised to concede the House of Assembly seats to some of the APGA candidates while others they promised to reward with political appointments in the imaginary Ikonne-led government. 

We, therefore, urge all lovers of democracy and freedom fighters in Abia to rise and vigorously resist this wicked plot by Abia slave masters to use our common patrimony to hold the state down perpetually. Never again shall we mortgage our future and the future of the unborn generation because of pecuniary interests. 

We should not allow those who have allocated to themselves the position of kingmakers to use our collective resources to buy our future. We must all rise to ensure that only those who have the competence to revive our economy and navigate the state out of its present economic doldrums receive our mandate. 

Should we allow god-fatherism and imposition which have taken Abia State far behind other states in the South East to continue? Should we allow Abia workers and pensioners to continue in misery of non-payment of salaries and benefits? Should we allow the destruction of our health and education sectors plus infrastructural dilapidation to continue? Should the squandermanium by the PDP be allowed to go unchecked? 

This is time to vote competence and not mediocrity. The next Abia Governor must have capacity and track record of achievements like Professor Greg Ibe. Abia State cannot be entrusted in the hands of emergency philanthropists and overnight billionaire Government contractors who are feeding fat on Abia’s common wealth. 

Who among all those jostling to be Governor in 2023 that has empowered or provided employment for Abians like Professor Ibe who is the single highest employer of labour in the state? Professor Ibe has empowered thousands of our people long before now unlike some of these emergency philanthropists. 

As a party, our advice to our candidates from Ukwa la Ngwa and other parts of the State is to refuse to be remembered on the wrong side of history. The bid to free Abia from political bondage is a divine project that should not be truncated or sacrificed on the altar of personal aggrandizement. 

We urge them to stand tall as heroes of democracy and support our Governorship candidate, Professor Greg Ibe, in his vision to birth a new Abia where merit will be placed above other sentiments. 

If we may ask: What have Ukwa East and Ukwa West people gained from the PDP-led Government for over 20 years when their roads remain impassable despite being the only oil-producing area in Abia State? Ugwunagbo LGA also has its own fair share of bad roads, lack of electricity and infrastructural decay. Osisioma, Aba North and South as well as Isiala Ngwa North and South LGAs are no exceptions. Obingwa with a lot of impassable roads despite being the home LGA of the Governor is not better off either. So, why should any right-thinking candidate of Ukwa la Ngwa extraction succumb to the PDP trap?

  • Hey LinkedIn fam! You won’t believe the crazy world we’re living in where cryptocurrency and artificial intelligence (AI) are colliding head-on. These two domains are like long-lost siblings who finally found each other at a family reunion. Today, I’m here to shed some light on the mind-blowing intersections of crypto and AI. Buckle up, because it’s going to be a wild ride! рџЋў 16cryptocurrencies The two main types of blockchain, public and private, offer different levels of security. Public blockchains “use computers connected to the public internet to validate transactions and bundle them into blocks to add to the ledger. …  Private blockchains, on the other hand, typically only permit known organizations to join.” Because any organization can join public blockchains, they might not be right for enterprises concerned about the confidentiality of the information moving through the network.
    Linking your debit card, credit card, or bank account (available in many regions) is one of the easiest ways to buy Bitcoin. Through this method, you can buy Bitcoin for a minimum of about $15. (This amount varies depending on the currency you use.) When dealing with cryptocurrency, it’s important to prioritize security so you don’t fall victim to scams. If you’re trading small amounts, the wallet provided by your exchange or another software wallet (there are plenty to choose from) may offer enough security. But if you’re going big, you almost certainly want a hardware wallet, and there are a number of encryption-related options.  But what does making profit mean in bitcoin? Whereas most think that profit means making more U.S. dollars, I disagree, and we can turn this argument on its head. Making profit in bitcoin is when your total satoshi count (the amount of BTC you own) goes up. In the end game, when fiat dies, the only thing that will matter is bitcoin. When counting profits, you need to use the correct unit of account. Bitcoin is that superior unit of account, not the downtrending U.S. dollar.
