The new Government House, which was started by the past administration of Theodore Orji, was completed by Governor Ikpeazu, with governors Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu and Seyi Makinde of Oyo State present as special guests.

Meanwhile, indigenes of Okwuta Ibeku, Nkata Ibeku, and Ndume Ibeku in Umuahia North LGA have expressed their happiness about the relocation of Abia’s seat of power to their area.

One of the indigenes, Onyeka Simon, said the relocation of the Government House, State Secretariat, Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, and other government offices has further appreciated the values of their lands and also helped the economic growth of their communities.
