He also said that the 17 LGA chairmen after due consideration passed a vote of confidence on Mr Nwoko’s Abia ALGON leadership.

Michael Ibe Nwoke, appreciated the Chairmen of the other 16 Local Governments, said they are brothers indeed and promised a more harmonious relationship in the days ahead. He also pledged the support of the Chairmen to the Govenor Okezie Ikpeazu led administration.
On the newly inaugurated Ebube Agu security outfit by the Southeast Governors Forum, the ALGON chairman noted that the chairmen of the 17 LGAs are fully in support of the governors decision and are awaiting for the directives of the Governor to swing into action.
Nwoke also applauded the Abia LGA chairmen for their performances in their first 100 days in office, noting that they have done well so far despite the paucity of funds.
