He mentioned some of those things below when asked the reason why Abia, as a state with great potentials has been unable to harness these potentials?
He said; "One cannot give what one doesn’t have. Abia is a very blessed state; we have the resources to be one of the economic hubs of Nigeria. Take example of Aba; the town has the potentials if properly harnessed can make Abia great.
"All we need is that man with the vision to propel that task. We use to hear made-in Aba at the same time with made-in China; the same made-in Aba is still there while made-in China is now ruling the world.
"What happened? We have the human capital; all we need is enabling environment for Aba to bounce back as the ‘Japan of Africa’ which is what it is known for.
