With nearly 30 years of management and apex-level banking experience, I know what it takes to find solutions, navigate complicated governmental agencies, and get things done. I’ll put those proven advantages to benefit Ndi Abia. We’ll make a difference with Abia First, as our motto.

Our beloved ABIA STATE has been struggling to find solutions to the many and vital needs of its citizenry. But a leader cannot give what he/she does not have, such as core ethical roots, accountability and vision.

ANY ONE WHO SEEKS TO LEAD MUST ANSWER TO WHAT THEIR RECORDS OF ACHIEVEMENTS ARE; NOT FANCY PROMISES BUT VERIFIABLE RECORD.  ACCORDINGLY, BEFORE I EMBARKED ON THIS GOVERNORSHIP PROJECT, I LEFT DIAMOND BANK WITH EXCELLENT BALANCE SHEET AND GREATER CREDIT CAPACITY.

MY GOAL :

To accomplish verifiable achievements and financially transformative results for Ndi Abia; similar to and even better than what I achieved with my team at Diamond Bank. Similarly, I will give Abia its finest brains and leaders as a governing team. We need to propel Abia to its maximum capacities.

BUSINESS & TECHNOLOGY

We are business-oriented in Abia, and I know how money and business work best. We’ll industrialize Abia, invest in agriculture, oil and gas, digital media and technology, healthcare, road networks, furniture, fabrication, fashion and create the enabling environment for all to flourish.

POWER & SECURITY

We are a great people who merely need infrastructural development and power supply to create a better Abia. We’ll make public safety/security top priority.

ABA, OUR ABA

MY GOVERNMENT WILL REVERSE THESE PAST  YEARS OF MONUMENTAL NEGLECT, INFRASTRUCTURAL ROT AND CRIMINAL ABANDONING OF THE ONCE GREAT CITY. I’LL ESTABLISH THE EQUIVALENT OF AN ABA MINISTRY TO BE KNOWN AS THE ABA DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY/AGENCY.

ABA WAS THE ECONOMIC ENGINE OF THE REGION, COVERING MOST OF NIGERIA AND WEST AFRICA. I WILL RESTORE THE FINANCIAL VITALITY AND ENTREPRENEURIAL CAPACITY OF ABA WITH STEADY POWER SUPPLY. THIS WILL STRATEGICALLY EMPOWER BOTH THE SMALL AND BIG BUSINESSES IN THE STATE.

YOUTH EMPOWERMENT

I’ll Empower Abia youth; encourage employers through tax and assorted incentives to pay more living wage jobs.

EDUCATION

As a father and a banker, I understand the fundamentals of planning ahead and investing ahead of the prevailing times we live in.

While some Governors have had no functional,no consistent agenda for the  totality of investing in our children, I’ll lead the way in not only educating our children but protecting them from predators and exploitation. Abia kids/pupils/students will be engaged in academic championships.

We’ll improve our schools and pay teachers better.

When I am elected Governor, I PLEDGE TO take a whole-child approach to elementary education. Teachers, administrators, counselors, and support staff work together to meet the intellectual, social, behavioral, and emotional needs of each and every child we serve.

Finally, as I contemplate the next challenge in Abia, I reflect on U.S Vice President Joe Biden’s inspirational words:

“Do nothing – Or, take history into our own hands and like few generations are given the chance, bend it, bend it, in the service of a better day.”

Thank you, and join us to build a better Abia, all in the service of a better day….

MANY OF YOU HAVE BEEN ASKING WHY WOULD YOU/ALEX LEAVE THE COMFORT OF THE BANK FOR THE SLIPPERY WATERS OF POLITICS? 

My answer is drawn, first, from the fact that I know that I am blessed with the pedigree, training and real life experiences to work better for Abia State.

Second, I come from a proud family that has been involved in community development and public service for as long as I can remember.

Third, I strongly agree with the wise words of U.S former Congressman and chairman of the 9-11 Commission Lee Hamilton who said “I can assure you, public service is a stimulating, proud and lively enterprise. It is not just a way of life, it is a way to live fully. Its greatest attraction is the sheer challenge of it – struggling to find solutions to the great issues of the day. It can fulfill your highest aspirations. The call to service is one of the highest callings you will hear and your country can make.”

Abia’s challenge to public service called and I have answered “Yes, Present and Ready to Lead!”

OUR CHILDREN,

WE WILL BRING SECURITY MECHANISMS TO KEEP OUR CITIZENS SAFE

Ndi Abia ndeewo nu o! I’ll place Abia First. I’m Not a career politician; I am a technocrat who believes — based on my record — that I can and will make a difference in the lives of our people of the great Abia State. We say No to stooges and lackeys!
