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.
