Dr. Alex Otti, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in Abia state,Thursday, said he had uncovered a plot by the agents of Abia state government to assault him at public functions in Aba.

He explained that the plot was provoked by the alleged humiliation of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu at a crusade in Aba recently, when he was allegedly booed by some worshippers who took offence at his (Ikpeazu) attempt to indulge in subtle campaign for re-election.

Otti made this known in a release issued to newsmen by his Media Assistant, Ferdinand Ekeoma, and forwarded to Veloxnews on Thursday, exonerating himself and his teeming supporters from the embarrassing outing suffered by the governor.

He frowned at such barbaric politics, disclosing that he had alerted the security agents of the plan by the agents of the state government to assault him.

The release stated that, “In the warped calculation of the government, their nemesis, Alex Otti was behind the booing, hence their ungodly plot to assault him by sending some thugs who would infiltrate every gathering Dr. Otti finds himself in, with the intent of causing chaos by interrupting his speech, and where possible, throw sachet water and missiles at him.

“We are alarmed by this dishonorable kind of politics and thus state as follows: That even though we are saddened by the very poor performance of Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu as Governor of Abia state, neither Dr. Alex Otti nor his supporters were responsible for the embarrassing outing suffered by the Governor, thus should not be at the receiving end of whatever misplaced aggression of the governor and his team.

“That the unpopularity of the governor amongst Abians should be properly understood as a self inflicted misfortune that could only be corrected through performance, and not through barbaric politics of absolutism.

“That such a plot shows that the government is disconnected from the realities on ground not to know that its unjust actions like non payment of workers salaries and pension arrears, extortion of business men and women of Abia, unemployment, life threatening touting and thuggery etc, are some of the reasons for the anti Ikpeazu/PDP agent.

“That those who seek to preside over public offices in Abia should not be afraid of public scrutiny, rather should purge themselves of ownership mentality so that they don’t misconstrue such offices for their personal estates that could be run aground without any objections.”
