The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, COSEYL, the apex socio-political youth group in South East geopolitical zone congratulate Dr. Alex Otti on his well deserved victory at the Saturday 18 March, 2023 gubernatorial elections in Abia State. His resilience, and faith in the electoral process has clearly shown that he is determined to bring his wealth of experience to bear in other to make Abia State better.
We commend Abians who defied the harsh weather and came out to exercise their civic responsibility by voting for Dr. Alex Otti to lead Abia State as their Governor.
We commend the Abia State Returning officer Professor Nnenna Otti who has made a remarkable history today and has proved to the entire world that honesty and integrity pays. What she has done today is the best form of evangelism as true Christian. We are eternally grateful for teaching our youths to always stand for the truth.
We commend the integrity, sincerity and courage of the INEC Returning Officer of Abia State Governorship Elections Professor Otti to reject all forms of financial inducements and she stood firmly for the truth and to uphold the will of the people who freely gave their mandate to Dr. Alex Otti.
Professor Nnenna Otti has rekindled the hope and faith of Nigerians who have lost faith in the electoral process. She has brought hope alive by standing tall and firm for the truth. History will be kind to her.
Today Wednesday 22 March, 2023 shall remain indelible in the minds of Abians and Nigerians who have been denied justice on several occasions. Today is the date when truth prevailed over lies and evil conspiracy. It is indeed a “Democracy Day” for Abians.
We call on the National Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Professor Mahmood Yakubu and relevant security agencies to deal decisively with airing INEC officials involved in the criminal act of altering the genuine votes of the people and in situations were the INEC officials were forced to do the wrong thing, such person who forced them should be made to face the music.
We therefore once again congratulate the Governor-Elect of Abia State Dr. Alex Otti on the mandate freely given to him by Abians to serve them as Governor and we urge him to take Abia State to greater heights as he promised during the campaigns.
Hon. Goodluck Ibem
