Ahead of his one year anniversary in office on May 29, Abia State governor, Alex Otti, has been endorsed by the leadership of the Labour Party (LP) in the state and the 17 LGAs.

The unanimous vote of confidence was passed during an enlarged meeting which was attended by the governor, the entire party hierarchy in the state, all political appointees in the state executive cabinet, elected members at the national and Abia State houses of assembly.

The motion for the vote of confidence was moved by Obi Aguocha, member representing the Ikwuano-Umuahia federal constituency, who said that Otti has made the party proud in the past 11 months in office as by surpassing expectations.

The motion at the meeting, which was convened at the governor’s residence, was supported by the member representing Obingwa-Osisioma-Ugwunagbo federal constituency, Munachim Alozie, with the Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly, Emmanuel Emeruwa, putting the decision to a vote.

The meeting, according to stakeholders, was called, primarily, for the party hierarchy in the state and the local government areas, to familiarise themselves with the various appointees of government, including members of the state’s executive council and local government.

Governor Otti, who said he was surprised at the show of solidarity and confidence by his party leadership and other stakeholders, expressed gratitude to God that people had taken note of the modest achievements recorded by his administration in less than one year in office.

The governor informed the meeting that he met Abia at sub zero level and said that Abia citizens were ashamed to introduce themselves as citizens of the state.

“Today, everywhere you introduce yourself as an Abian, people look at you differently with respect, unlike in the past, ” said Otti.
