“I have Not Declared Governorship Ambition” – Otti, Diamond Bank GMD
After series of speculations about his political ambition, Dr. Alex Otti,
Group Managing Director/CEO, Diamond Bank Plc, says that there is no iota
of truth in the stories being peddled by some politicians who are claiming
that he has made public his intention to contest for Abia governorship
seat in 2015.
Denying the allegations that he has declared interest in the governorship
election of Abia State, he stated that he understand and feels the
yearnings of the people of Abia who have continued to mount pressure, and
are determined to choose a credible hand that will put the state first and
build on the good works of the incumbent governor, T. A. Orji.
In a statement, the bank described as misleading various newspaper and
online reports which suggested that Otti has thrown his hat into the
political ring, stating that he is focused on his work as the CEO of
Diamond Bank Plc and has continued to show sterling results.
While Otti is unaware of pressure being brought upon him by various
organisations to contest for the electoral seat based on his hard work,
integrity, managerial ingenuity and track record of performance in the
corporate world, the bank noted that he is currently focused on pursuing
the vision of taking the bank to greater heights.
“The achievements of Diamond Bank Plc, in the past three years, are a
testament to Dr. Otti's commitment to excellence and competence in
managing men and resources towards superior results.
“As a law abiding citizen, Dr. Otti is mindful of the electoral laws of
the land and knows it is premature, if not illegal to at this stage, take
actions that are in breach of provisions of the electoral act. If in the
future, Dr. Alex Otti decides to run for the governorship seat of Abia
State, which becomes vacant in 2015, this will be made public, and
communicated to all stakeholders of the bank.
“We hope that this statement will serve to clear the air about the
misleading press reports. The public is urged to ignore any information
other than this from the bank.
