The governor of Abia State, Victor Okezie Ikpeazu congratulated Dr. Uchechukwu Sampson Ogah on his newly appointment as a minister of State for work. 

Governor expressed his profound joy as he was nominated and added that Ogah is a worthy and successful son of Abia State with a deep passion for public service. 

"I have sent a warm message of Congratulations to Dr. Uchechukwu Sampson Ogah, OON, on his nomination as Minister by President Muhammadu Buhari and his subsequent successful screening by the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria."

"Dr. Ogah is a worthy and successful son of Abia State with a deep passion for public service and I expressed my profound joy and that of the people of Abia State on his emergence as a Minister Designate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria."

"There comes a time when primordial political considerations must give way for deliberate and concerted efforts geared towards the collective good of our people. This is such a time. As the sole representative designate of the people of Abia State at the Federal Executive Council; statesmanship, good conscience and love for our people demand that we forge a strategic collaboration that will benefit the generality of the people of Abia State irrespective of political affiliations."

He also appreciated the three Senators from Abia State, Senator T. A Orji, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu and Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe for their efforts to ensure that the process of Ogah's confirmation was successful. 

He added that what happened shows the example of the Abia spirit of unity. 

"I followed the screening process with keen interest, and thanked the three Senators from Abia State for working harmoniously to ensure that the process of Dr. Ogah’s confirmation by the Senate was seamless and devoid of any rancor from home, describing it as a clear example of the Abia Spirit of Unity."  

"I recall with deep pride, the sterling performances of the last two Federal Ministers from the State, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala and Dr. Okechukwu Enelamah who brought pride to our State by using their exalted positions at the Federal Cabinet to drive the cause of the development of Abia State in addition to their primary assignments, and I have expressed confidence that Dr. Ogah will follow that same path, for the overall benefit of our people."

"I am confident that whichever portfolio it pleases the President to assign to Dr Ogah, he will bring to bear on the assignment, his years of experience in the corporate and business sectors of our economy and urged him to see this opportunity as a platform to serve our Country and help bring to the front burner at the Federal Cabinet, issues affecting Abia State, especially the state of federal infrastructure in the state."

"I have assured the Honorable Minister designate of the cooperation and support of the entire paraphernalia of the Government of Abia State under my leadership and the prayers of our people in his new assignment."

"Let me therefore end by wishing my dear brother, my friend and Honorable Minister Designate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, on behalf of my family, Government and the entire people of Abia State, good health, sound mind and an excellent spirit as he prepares for this great national assignment, and I pray the good Lord  bless him and his family," he stated.
