In a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr Enyinnaya Appolos, the boards are: Abia State Water Board, Abia State Transport Corporation, Umuahia Capital Development Authority, Abia State Housing Corporation, Board of Internal Revenue (Abia State Revenue Service Agency), Abia State Road Maintenance Agency, Abia State Physical Planning Board, Abia State Library Board, Open Space Development Commission and Land Use Allocation Committee.

World Bank Urban Development Project, Aba Textiles Mill, Abia Palm Limited, Abia Newspaper Corporation, Abia State Scholarship Board, Abia Tourism Board, Agency for Mass Literacy, Abia Essential Drug Services Board, Agricultural Development Program, Abia State Council for Art And Culture, State Emergency Management Agency and Abia Warriors Football Club completed the list.

The Governor expressed his appreciation to members of the boards for their service to the state and directed that all government properties in their possession be handed over to the relevant offices.

Ikpeazu had, earlier in the week, dissolved the Abia State Universal Basic Education Board (ASUBEB) as well as the Body of Political Appointees in the state.

The Governor had won his second tern bid in the just concluded 2019 governorship election.

The Returning Officer for the Abia State gubernatorial election, Professor Benjamin Ozumba had declared the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dr Okezie Victor Ikpeazu, as the winner of the election.

Ikpeazu, who polled 261,127 to defeat his rivals of the APC and PDP, is the incumbent governor.

It was reported that Professor Ozumba said Ikpeazu, having satisfied all electoral requirements and scored the highest number of votes, is declared the winner and returned elected.

But, the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in the state have all rejected both the process and the outcome of the election. Below is the total number of votes recorded for the parties: APC – 99574 APGA- 64366 PDP – 261127

He will be inaugurated for the second term in office on May 29, 2019.

However, some of the key opponents in the election may be challenging the victory of Ikpeazu in court.
