Alex Otti Reacts To Outcome Of Abia Governorship Election




Abia: Gov Otti Appoints More Aides, Dismisses Education Secretaries

The Abia State Governor-elect, Alex Otti, has reacted to his victory at last Saturday’s gubernatorial election after much anxiety in the state.

Naija News earlier reported that Alex polled 175,467 votes to defeat Okey Ahiwe of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who polled 88,529 votes.

Alex Otti is now the 4th democratically elected governor of the State and the first candidate to be governor from a political party that’s not PDP since 1999.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Returning Officer in the state, Nnenna Nnannaya-Oti declared Otti the winner on Wednesday evening after the resumption of the final collation of governorship election results in Umuahia.

Recall, the electoral umpire suspended the collation of results on Monday over issues of violence in the state.

Reacting to the outcome of the election, Otti in a post via Twitter praised God for his victory at the poll.

He wrote: “See what the lord has done.”
