The Social Democratic Party, SDP has said it is disappointed that building of mortuaries is the most thriving business in Abia State.
It also took a swipe at the PDP led government of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu for failing to attract foreign direct investment to the State, rather individuals are investing in building of mortuaries.
Chairman of the SDP in the State, Hon. Chidi Nwosu who spoke to newsmen in Umuahia said the State is also plagued by unemployment because of the draconian policies of the present government that are not people oriented.
He said,”PDP is not a political party that is investment-oriented. There is nothing for them to show on ground in Abia.
“There is no investment attracted by this government all this while into the state, that can boast of hundred employment.
” Everyday, the governor is junketing from one country to another in search of foreign investors, when you have not developed the talents you have.
“The governor, everyday is out of the state and the country looking for investors, when we don’t have good roads. No infrastructure in the state.
” I can tell that the only investment moving in Abia state today, is building of mortuaries along express roads. You will see mortuaries everyday.
“PDP has subjected the people of Abia to death, because they inflicted poverty and hunger on the people. Count from Umuahia to Aba, how many mortuaries are there”.
“Mortuaries are sited everywhere in the state. People are dying,” he added.
Nwosu vowed that come 2019, PDP will no longer exist in Abia because of it misrule.
“In 2019, PDP will be stopped, and will never exist again. Only a name and remembrance that it was a PDP as a political party”.
