The campaign organization of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abia state has accused the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Dr. Alex Otti and his party of celebrating the March 28 defeat of President Goodluck Jonathan by his All Progressives Congress (APC) counterpart, General Muhammadu Buhari.

 

The party also accused the ex-bank chief and APGA members of resisting every effort made to revert to manual accreditation through the use of incident forms when card reader machines failed in some polling units in the state.

 

According to a press statement signed and made available to journalists by the Deputy Director Media and Publicity, Abia PDP Campaign Organization, Ebere Uzoukwa, the party accused Otti of working for the APC while he claimed to be supporting President Jonathan.

 

The statement reads: “We have been alerted to the ongoing celebration by Dr. Alex Otti and his supporters in the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Abia state since the announcement of the March 28 presidential election results by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) which returned Gen. Mohammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner.

 

“Such celebration by Otti and APGA members who before the March 28 election had claimed to be working for the re-election of President Goodluck Jonathan explains their insistence on the use of card reader accreditation after the machines failed in many polling units.

 

“Every effort made towards reverting to manual accreditation through the use of incident forms as directed by INEC was frustrated by Otti and his supporters apparently to sabotage Abia votes for President Jonathan.

 

“This latest outing and show of shame by Otti and supporters has clearly given credence to earlier position that the ex-banker was truly working against President Jonathan while claiming support for him.

Hence it is always difficult for a leopard to change its spot, the real Otti is now unmasked to Abia electorate and Nigerians.

 

Today, the same Otti has resorted to dance naked in the market by encouraging his supporters to celebrate President Jonathan’s loss after working against the use of incident forms to disfranchise enthusiastic voters and supporters of Mr. President in Abia state.”

    THE REASON APGA OR DR. ALEX OTTI AND PEOPLE LIKE US MAY CELEBRATE THE DEFEAT OF GEJ, IS BECAUSE HE IS THE HIGH WING OF T.A ORJI, HE IS THE REASON T.A ORJI DID ALL RUBBISH IN ABIA STATE AND STILL HAVE THE FACE TO RUN FOR SENATE.

    NOW FOR HIM GEJ TO LOSS HIS SEAT THEN T.A ORJI WINGS IS NO MORE POWERFUL.

    EVEN IF HIM T.A ORJI FINALLY GO TO THE SENATE, BOY BOY WILL BE BETTER THAN HIM, BECAUSE HE IS NOT GOOD FRIEND WITH THE APC PEOPLE STARTING FROM OKOROCHA TO THE PRESIDENT ELECT.

    THIS MAN CALL DR. ALEX OTTI, HAS ALL IT TAKES TO BRING ABIA BACK TO LIFE, HE HAS WORLDWIDE RECOGNITION, VERY STRONG CONTACT WITH INVESTORS ETC.

    SO WHY WONT WE CELEBRATE GEJ DEFEAT?

    IF GEJ REMAINS THERE AS PRESIDENT ABIA WILL REMAIN AS IT IS, SO GEJ GOING HOME IS ONE OF THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENS TO ABIA STATE.

    THANK YOU.

    That’s PDP for you. Just as they chased certificate while APC campaigned for votes, they are now stigmatising Oti, hoping to prey on the sentiment of the people.
    This is the problem with PDP: thinking that the people will always remain in perpetual servitude and subjugation to their establishment.
    That Party should be defunct; the people have NOT been served in any way by PDP. What they fail to realise is that most of us have earned our education. Even the uneducated now know better.
    They should be ashamed of their stewardship in Abia.

    The writer of this article should go and get a life and stop making cheap and petty political point that will not bring or make any positive change to the life of Abians.

    Poppy cock! What difference does it make whether APGA or Alex Otti celebrates Buhari’s win? Abia state alone cannot elect Nigeria’s president and, thanks to PDP, Igbos will not have representation at the leadership of the national assembly. Why is this writer not lamenting that loss?

  9. Maziy says:

    So what? PDP want to use the manual paper to rig the election. TA Oji and PDP loss the senatorial election in Abia and will loose the governorship election in April 11th too. Abians are tired of thieves.

  10. Oge says:

    This write up is arrant nonsense. Is Otti we know come rain come shine. Change must happen in Abia this time. PDP should better stop wagging their mouth and leave Dr Otti alone. Otti is the right leader for Abia State. Distractors should keep off. God have ordained that Dr Otti is the only one that will bring the change Abia need at this time.
