April 11 Polls:  APGA, Not An Option For Abia —Nwosu



A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abia state, Chief Friday Nwosu says the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) is not an option for the residents of the state in the April 11 governorship and State Assembly polls as a result of the character of its flagbearer, Dr. Alex Otti.


Addressing his teeming supporters at his Mgboko Umuoria country home in Obingwa local government area, Nwosu who vied for the Abia PDP governorship ticket berated Otti for claiming to hail from Isiala Ngwa South instead of Arochukwu where he originated from, in order to cause confusion and deprive the people of Abia South zone their turn to produce a governor of the state.


“Dr. Alex Otti is trying to bring disunity among the three senatorial zones of the state through the manner he has been running his electioneering. He changed his origin from Arochukwu to Isiala Ngwa south to qualify to contest the Abia governorship position which through justice and equity belongs to Ukwa/Ngwa people in Abia South.  He built his first house in Arochukwu with a helipad and christened it, ’No Place Like Home’ Again, to justify his claim of being a native of Umuru Umuehim Nvosi, Isiala Ngwa South, he built another house in the community where his father settled as a pastor of the Seventh Day Adventist Church. The question is why will Alex Otti be denying his origin when everybody knows he is a son of Arochukwu?  There are many other controversies surrounding Dr. Alex Otti. It is very risky to trust such a character with the position of governor, Abia people cannot afford to do that.”


Nwosu maintained that the people of Abia North and Abia Central senatorial zones should support their Abia South brothers to produce a governor of the state in the interest of fair play, justice and equity as well as unity of the state.


He further called on the people of the state to shun other political parties like the APC who he said has nothing to offer Abia state, stressing that only the support for the PDP governorship and state Assembly candidates remains the best option for the state.


“Despite the election of Gen. Buhari as President and his APC party coming to power, PDP is still the best option for Abia state. Nobody should deceive you with the idle talk of being in opposition with the federal government. Abia state stands to gain a lot by remaining with the PDP which will surely bounce back at the federal level at the next election in 2019,” Nwosu said.
