Abia Gov. Otti reveals what he would do to his critics

GOVERNOR Alex Otti of Abia State has said the days of victimizing Abians who aired their opinions about the affairs of the state are over.
He says he recalled that Abians who aired their opinions about some deplorable conditions of the state in the past were allegedly thrown into dungeons where they spent many weeks or months just for speaking their minds.
Otti spoke on the matter during a church service at Rhema University Auditorium, Aba, during the 74th birthday celebration of the President, Living Word/Chancellor, Rhema University, Bro Emma Okorie.
The governor said such wicked practices could never find their ways into the new Abia State he is leading.
He said despite the barrage of insulting criticisms by some people in the state, his administration would not victimize any Abian as it was their fundamental right to do so, adding that every Abian should be treated with dignity and utmost respect as seen in other climes.
Gov. Otti reiterated his administration’s resolve to continue with the restoration of Abia to the glory of God, informing the gathering that his administration had received a comprehensive design of Aba, the commercial nerve centre of Abia as done by a reputable company, adding that very soon, Aba and every other part of the state would wear new looks.
He congratulated Bro Emma Okorie on his 74th birthday, just as he appreciated him specially for contributing to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of Abia through the employment of over 5,000 staff working in Living Word Hospitals, and Rhema University, among others, noting that his giant strides should be celebrated.
Earlier, while welcoming the governor, his wife Priscilla, and his entourage, Okorie said he knew that a day like this would come as he had worked with faith and not by sight, adding that God is using the governor to reposition Abia for greatness.
