PDP claimed a whopping 84,000 votes — which USAfrica notes is dramatically far beyond the total number of actual voters and number of pvc cards for Obingwa. APGA and the APC raised objections.

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 theAbia State government and their hirelings.”Dr. Otti added “as is public knowledge,the government ofAbia State has consistently deployed and unleashed the raw power, intimidation and allmanner ofAbia government brutality against myAPGA 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 usingAbia 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!”

and friendship hold lessons for humanity and Africans, USAfrica Founder Chido Nwangwu takes a measure of their works and consequence to write that Mandela and Achebe have left “footprints of greatness.”
He chronicles, movingly, his 1998 reporting from the Robben Island jail room in South Africa where Mandela was held for decades through his 20 years of being close to Achebe. He moderated the 2012 Achebe Colloquium at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.“I’ll forever remember having walked inside and peeped through that historic Mandela jail cell (where he was held for most of his 27 years in unjust imprisonment) at the dreaded Robben Island, on March 27, 1998, alongside then Editor-in-chief of TIME magazine and later news chief executive of the CNN, Walter Isaacson (and others) when President Bill Clinton made his first official trip to South Africa and came to Robben Island. Come to this island of scourge and you will understand, in part, the simple greatness and towering grace of Nelson Mandela”, notes Chido Nwangwu, award-winning writer, multimedia specialist and founder of USAfricaonline.com, the first African-owned U.S-based newspaper published on the internet, in his first book; he writes movingly from his 1998 reporting from South Africa on Mandela. http://www.mandelaachebechido.com/
