Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State has unveiled the three options before him on the expiration of his second term in 2023, saying shoemaking is one of them.
Ikpeazu will on May 29, 2023 hand over power to whoever wins the governorship election in the state.
Asked about his political future in 2023 during an interactive session with journalists at the Governor’s Lodge in Aba, Ikpeazu said “I have three options for 2023. The first is to return to the classroom to continue teaching.
“Secondly, since I am now learning how to make shoes, I should be through with the training by then and open a shoe business.
“Lastly, I would wait for my people to speak to me. For now, they are yet to speak and I can’t jump the gun.”
Our correspondent gathered that with less than two years to the completion of Ikpeazu’s tenure as governor of the state, many of his kinsmen and supporters have started making moves for him to run for Abia South senatorial seat now occupied by Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe.
