Alex Otti decamps to APC

The former governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Abia State, Dr. Alex Otti, has decamped to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Otti contested for the governorship seat of the state on the platform of APGA in 2015 and 2019 but lost to Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The former Managing Director of the defunct Diamond bank has been the sole financier of APGA in the past five years. He is believed to have joined APC with his numerous supporters and had already registered as a member of the party in his ward.

A chieftain of the APC in the state confirmed that Otti had joined the party, although it had not been made public due to the coronavirus and the subsequent lockdown.

He added that Abia APC could have received Otti into the party in the first week of April, stressing that plans are still afloat to formerly receive Otti and his group into APC.

According to the party chieftain, “APC Abia chapter had concluded plans to receive Alex Otti and his supporters into the party in the first week of April at the Umuahia Township stadium, but for the COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, after this period of the coronavirus, we are going to formerly receive him and his supporters into APC at an elaborate reception”.

When contacted, Otti’s media aide, Ferdinand Ekeoma could not confirm or deny the report. He said his principal would in due course make public his decision on the issue.
