Governor Ikpeazu Signs Abia State Diaspora Bill Into Law

Abia state Governor Ikpeazu has assented the Abia State Diaspora Bill recently passed by the State House of Assembly into Law...


Ikpeazu, after signing the law at Government House Umuahia, commended the leadership of the State Assembly for responding to the yearnings of the Abia community in the Diaspora through the drafting of a bill that would provide legal backing to the participation of Abians in the diaspora in the governance of the State.

This was made known in a statement by Onyebuchi Ememanka, the Chief Press Secretary to the State governor and issued to journalists in Umuahia, on Friday.

Ikpeazu promised to create a platform for Abians from all walks of life to participate in the governance process, noting that Abia is endowed with men and women with great capabilities scattered across the world.

The Abia Chief Executive stressed that there was a need to leverage on the abundant human capacity that abound in the State and abroad to develop the State. 

He recalled that those in the Diaspora have made direct returns and remittances which account for major foreign inflow into the country, emphasizing that in Abia, they have made impressive contributions in the area of farming, health, education and industry.

Ikpeazu who further highlighted some of the interventions anchored by Diaspora Abians including the Geriatric Care, Training and Retraining of Teachers, Medical Outreaches amongst others, commended them for supporting the building of a Specialist Pediatric Hospital in the State.

The Governor announced that Abia State has just received two containers of medical supplies out of four donated by those in the Diaspora to drive the specialist hospital and congratulated Abians in the Diaspora for supporting the effort.

He announced that the Special Adviser on Diaspora Matters would henceforth serve as the Acting Executive Secretary of the Diaspora Commission and implored those in the Diaspora to continue to look homeward.

The sponsor of the Bill Is Hon. Mike Ukoha a Member representing Arochukwu State Constituency

    Ikpeazu should focus on paying his workers. My mom hasn’t been paid in 4years now. I don’t understand the level of wickedness in this man and he’d rather spend the money on women and alcohol. Reprobate mind.

    Stella post this thing! Ich bin wütend asf

    1. Wait, FOUR YEARS? Are you serious? And the wicked governor is talking?

  3. Diaspora! diaspora! Those in diaspora will keep struggling & sending it home while the governor with PHD in failure will be misusing both the resources sent & the Abia State allocations.

    Have you Ikpeazu finished constructing the center table at Osisioma?

    1. Don't worry he still has about 2years to complete. He will commission it as he is leaving office and enter Guiness book of records as the governor that used 8years to build a center table. Talk about breaking records,up you gov oo👍

  4. Good news. I hope they will utilize that medical supplies judiciously
