I do not have any personal issue with Mr. Alex Otti, not even when I know he is a complete underdog, neophyte and greenhorn in the field of politics, making his desperate ambition to ascend the governorship seat of Abia a dead-on-arrival ambition, a complete waste of questionable wealth. But I hate Alex Otti’s lies, which he tells everywhere he goes with the intention to deceive innocent and unsuspecting Abia electorate.
One of Otti’s minions, Eze Solomon Nwoko, posted what he described as “breaking news’ on several Facebook pages, misinforming Abians that Alex Otti has secured $100b facility to develop an industrial park in Aba. What a white lie. The fake story authored by Okey Sampson was published in Sun Newspapers of Orji Uzor kalu, who is trying to stage a come back to Abia State through Otti to continue the looting of our common wealth.
Now, I have few questions for Otti and his cohorts, but before I do that, let me remind them of a comment by the governor of Abia State, Chief T.A. Orji, and the management of Greenfield Limited, the firm constructing the Aba Mega Mall at Osisioma in Aba, that , while sitting as the MD of Diamond Bank Plc, refused his bank from funding the Aba Mega Mall which is almost completed now. According to testimonies of both the governor and the firm, Otti told them to forget Aba, that Aba was dead for such investment.
Now my questions: can an individual get a loan or facility for $100b to develop such a project for the government? Which government approved for Otti land where the industrial park will be situated in Aba? When did Otti suddenly realise that Aba is alive for investment? If Otti has this kind of love for Aba, why did he refuse Diamond Bank from funding the construction of Aba Mega Mall?
Abians must beware of this man who has gone as far as denying his place of birth because he wants to be a governor. There must be something that Otti is hiding that is pushing him this far. A man who claims to love Abia is now in bed with questionable characters that ruined and misruled Abia.
