Alex Otti, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship candidate for Abia State in the 2019 general election, has vowed to retrieve and reconstruct Abia if he emerges the governor.
Otti, who stated this in Umuahia when he formally kicked-off his campaign, said the ceremony marked the beginning of the journey for Abians to the Promise Land.
“Abia is on the way to the Promise Land. In the past 20 years, Abia has been a caricature of a state, the least developed in Nigeria because of bad governance,” Otti said.
He said the problem with Abia was not that Abia is not rich but bad leadership who had stolen the state dry.
The APGA governorship candidate threatened to recover all the stolen funds from past and present administrations.
“They must bring back our money. We have decayed infrastructure. I have come to serve Abia people. I am dedicating myself to the service of Abia people. The Egyptians you see today, you will see them no more.
Nkem Okeke, deputy governor of Anambra State, earlier enjoined Abians to vote Otti so that Abia would look like Anambra and even better.
“We want purposeful leadership and security in Abia. If you make Otti your governor next year, your lives will change for better,” Okeke said.
Jerry Chukwueke, the vice presidential candidate of APGA, in his speech said his party was running for presidential to win.
He disclosed that APGA has a clear agenda for Nigeria in general.
Chukueke appealed to Nigerians to give his party chance salvage the country, adding that the present administration has failed Nigerians.
“We have a clear agenda for restructuring Nigeria based on zonal levels. APGA is out to fight poverty in Nigeria, reduce cost of governance, enthrone quality education and ensure that all the geopolitical zones are economic zones,” he promised.
