Abia 2019: I didn’t step down for Ogah – Otti
By Steve Oko
The candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, dr. Alex Otti, has dispelled the rumour making the rounds that he had stepped down for his All Progressive Congress, APC counterpart, Dr. Uche Ogah.
He said he did not, and would not step down for anybody including Ogah.
Otti who spoke through his Campaign Organisation, dismissed the rumour and reports of his alleged stepping down as “fake news “.
The APGA flag bearer in a press statement signed by the Director, Media and Publicity of his Campaign Organisation, Mr. Kazie Uko, said those behind the rumour were only jittery of him.
Otti said he “is still very much in the race and has not stepped down for anybody”, while urging members of the public to disregard the said rumour which is already trending in some social media platforms.
The statement read in part : “Consequently, the Alex Otti Campaign Organisation hereby states unequivocally that the report by an online media blog that Dr. Alex Otti has stepped down for the APC candidate, Uche Ogah, is false and deliberate attempt by desperate politicians to demoralise and confuse the Abia electorates.
“The Alex Otti Campaign Organisation urges Ndi Abia to remain focused in our resolve to vote Dr. Otti, on Saturday, March 9, 2019 thereby enthroning credible leadership at the government house in Abia State and not be distracted by false rumours by rejected and hopeless politicians and their collaborators in the fake media.
“Just on Friday, March 1, 2019 the Accord Party governorship candidate, Barr. Emeka Uwakolam, led his deputy and teeming number of his party members to the Alex Otti Campaign Organisation where he formally stepped down for Dr. Otti, declaring that the APGA candidate stands tall above all the other candidates in the race.
“Whereas this elicited excitement and hope across the political skyline of Abia State, it must have obviously sent shock waves across the camps of the opposition APC and the PDP, prompting the resort to fake news and propaganda by enemies of Abia State.
“Abia people should rest assured that Dr. Alex Otti is determined to win the March 9, 2019 election on the platform of APGA and will not trade that for anything. Just like we did in 2015, APGA will win the 2019 election, this time with even wider margin.
:We urge Ndi Abia to remain vigilant and not allow anybody to pull wool over our eyes as we conclude the journey to reclaim our dear state next Saturday, from the hands of marauders who have plundered the state for past 20 years.”
