No cause for alarm, Otti assures Abia people after court sacked him




Abia Governor -elect, Dr Alex Otti, has asked people in the state not to be troubled over his purported sack by a Federal High Court in Kano.


The governor-elect explained that there is no cause for alarm over the kangaroo judgement, while dismissing as judgment as a waste of time.


According to Otti in an interview with Vanguard in Abia,  thearrangements for his swearing- in on May 29 were on full gear as planned, declaring that the antics of the enemies of democracy cannot truncate the will of Abians.

Similarly, the Labour Party Chairman in Abia State, Hon. Ceekay Igara, said the court’s “pronouncement is laughable”.

According to him, the decision of the court would have no significance in the coming inauguration of the governor-elect.

Igara added that only the election tribunal is bequeathed the power to sack a democratically elected person.

He said, “That court pronouncement is laughable. Everybody should go about their normal activities. It is only the tribunal that can remove Alex Otti.

“It is not just a court that will remove someone who was duly elected. Infact I am going to gear up activities for the inauguration”.
