APGA’s DR. OTTI SAYS “NO AMOUNT OF INTIMIDATION AND VIOLENCE WILL STOP THE VOTES FOR CHANGE IN ABIA”
The APGA Abia State governorship candidate, Dr. Alex Otti (OFR), has, a few minutes ago, issued his reaction to the unfolding events of the deadly, sponsored and armed attack of Thursday March 19, 2015 while he was campaigning.In his news release sent to USAfricaonline.com, the former Group Managing Director of Diamond Bank and first class graduate in economics from the University of Port Harcourt, called “the attention of the peace loving people of Abia State regardless of their political affiliation, and fellow Nigerians to the increase in politics of violence and intimidation being targeted at my campaign for governor by the Abia State government and their hirelings.”Dr. Otti added “as is public knowledge, the government of Abia State has consistently deployed and unleashed the raw power, intimidation and all manner of Abia government brutality against my APGA governorship campaign and candidacy. Evidently, the regime of T.A. Orji and his cronies have become very desperate since their rounds of propaganda and strings of malicious lies using Abia government agencies to attack our surging, development agenda driven campaign have failed woefully.”
He predicted that “the feverish anxieties of TA & Co will evaporate on April 11, 2015 through the power of the popular votes of the long-suffering people of Abia State! No amount of intimidation and threats can overcome the will and determination of Ndi Aba, Enyimba city, of Ndi Abia as a whole to chart a new and better course; far away from the remnants of the Gov. T.A Orji brigade.”
He appealed to “my supporters to remain steadfast and ensure you cast your vote for me and APGA. Victory is within reach; we’ve come too far, away from T.A’s Babylon!”————–VIDEO #CNN special #CHIBOK Girls n #BokoHaram Live intvw wt the Founder of USAfrica multimedia and public policy networks Chido Nwangwu.
