Abia Governorship: Bianca Canvasses Votes For Otti
BEVERLY HILLS, March 27, (THEWILL) – Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu, wife of late Ikemba Nnewi, Dim Odimegwu Ojukwu, has urged the Abia electorate to vote massively for the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the state, Dr. Alex Otti, in the April 11 election.
Addressing a mammoth crowd of supporters at APGA mega rally in Aba on Wednesday, Bianca said the party was founded by Ojukwu to cater to the needs and wellbeing of Ndigbo at home and in Diaspora.
She explained that APGA had become a household name in the South east, saying the party had successfully transformed Anambra State in terms of infrastructure, social amenities and human capital development.
Endorsing Otti's candidacy for the poll, she expressed implicit confidence in his ability to rescue Abia from its myriads of socio-economic woes.
Bianca described Otti as a credible, tested and trusted Nigerian, who excelled in his banking career, adding that he had the experience and contact to attract investment and overall development to Abia state.
She also urged the electorate to vote massively for all the APGA candidates in the general elections, assuring them that they would not be disappointed.
Unveiling his blueprint for the transformation of the state, Otti said he would tackle the infrastructural and environmental decay in Aba, the commercial hub of Abia.
“The level of decay in infrastructure in Aba is worrisome, the roads have completely collapsed, Aba has no roads and that is why I joined the race,” he said.
He lamented that past and present administrations lacked the vision and commitment to develop the state, hence they neglected and abandoned Aba and other parts of the state.
“I have come to fix Abia and I will rehabilitate all the roads in Aba,” he said, adding that he would construct three flyovers to be situated at Ngwa High School, Port Harcourt Road and Ogbor Hill to ease vehicular traffic in the city.
He said he had concluded negotiations with the International Finance Corporation for a $100 million grant for the construction of industrial clusters in Aba and its environs to boost industrial activities in the area.
He commended the ingenuity of the Aba industrialists and urged them to rejoice, saying there is light in the horizon.
Otti introduced his deputy, Dr. Eme Uche-Eme and other candidates for the National and House of Assembly elections on the platform of APGA and urged the people to vote massively for them.
