Foremost politician and governorship hopeful under the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA in Imo state, Barr. Ike C Ibeh has decried the economic status of Imo state under Governor Rochas Okorocha, alleging that Imo is down with N113bn debt.


Ibeh who spoke to journalists on his return from medical trip abroad declared that anyone that would succeed Okorocha will see hell because Imo economy is already dwindling and at the verge of collapsing, only experienced person with vast knowledge in resource management can recover the system. Otherwise, it will take Imo another 50yeras before it could regain the loss, stating however that the governor tried to the best of his own ability. He used the medium to declare that he is now mentally, physically and financially sound and fit to serve Imo people diligently as governor come 2019, adding that God prepares people for leadership role at all times and that of Imo will not be exempted. Expressing his optimism of emerging as the candidate of APGA, Ibeh furthered that it would also offer the party a soft landing for victory, saying that he is loved across party lines. 
He also envisaged hard times ahead going by the state of the Imo economy, pointing out that Imo of today has been faced with multiples challenges, lamenting that the state is struggling to financially survive and many guber aspirants do not know that, “It would not be the game as usual”. He said that Okorocha's successor must be   psychologically sound, an economist and an architect of development.  Speaking on his readiness to address the issues if elected, he stated that he has what it takes to create resources without tasking the people due to his experience in the past. He wants to build what he called “a newer Imo” where Imo state will depend less on national remittance for development. Local government will play complementary role in the development of the state, acquire international resources that will mainly service the education and health sectors in order to attract fresh economy for development.
While applauding the courage of the party amidst provocations, the legal luminary further stated that APGA leadership has the obligation of giving everybody equal access to delegates and party officials, as well as carrying out a free and fair process, hence he urged party members to make conscious decisions, warning aspirants not to see the contests as do or die and insisted that Ike Ibeh is a brand.  He has the capacity to unite every one because he has no political boundaries and enemies. He stressed that PAGA has huge opportunities to recover the state and implored the best aspirant to emerge.
