Ikpeazu Sacks Wabara, Other ABSU Governing Council Members

Governor Okezie Ikpeazu

Former Senate President, Sen. Adolphus Wabara, has been removed as Chairman, Governing Council of Abia State University, Uturu.

This was communicated in a late evening Press release by the Secretary to Abia State Government, Chris Ezem on Monday.

Ezem said Governor Okezie Victor Ikpeazu, and Visitor to Abia State University, Uturu, approved the dissolution of the Governing Council of the University with immediate effect.

The governor immediately approved the reconstitution of the Governing council as follows; Mba Okoronkwo Ukariwo – Chairman, Obinna Njoku – member, Senator Emma Nwaka – member, Chief Chinwe Nwanganga – member, Chief Ndukwe U Ndukwe – member, Dr. Jonas Ibeaja – member, C Nwokeukwu (SAN) – member and Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education – member.

The removal of Wabara comes a few hours after his statement that power should rotate to either Ukwa axis of Abia South or Abia North.

The former Senate President, who is also the Secretary, Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, had earlier in the day warned the state government and the party that they will lose Abia if another Ngwa man tries to succeed Ikpeazu.

In his warning to the party, Wabara noted that any attempt to make another Ngwa man succeed Ikpeazu who is also an Ngwa man would be counterproductive for PDP, while the party might get a protest vote in Abia in the 2023 election.
