Dr. Alex Otti, All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Abia State governorship candidate in the 2015 and 2019 elections, has dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC), reports says.
Otti, former managing director/chief executive of defunct Diamond bank, contested the governor of the state on the platform of APGA in 2015 and 2019 is believed to have joined APC with his numerous supporters in the state.
TheSun reports that Alex Otti had already registered in his ward and was waiting for the appropriate time to make his move and that of his supporters over to APC public.
A chieftain of the APC in the state who wouldn’t want his name in print confirmed to TheSun, that Otti had joined the party, although it had not been made public due to logistics reasons.
The party chieftain said but for the coronavirus and the subsequent lockdown, APC in the state could have received the former APGA governorship candidate 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”.
Meanwhile, Otti’s media aide, Ferdinand Ekeoma is yet to comment on the reports. TheSun quoted him, said his principal would in due course make public his decision on the issue.
