2,300 Ghost Workers Discovered In Abia, Over N200m Saved Monthly – Otti's Aide

Abia Guber: Peter Obi Shares No Similarities With Alex Otti – Ikpeazu

by Victor Ndubuisi

Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State has stated that there is no link between the Labour Party’s candidate in the state, Dr. Alex Otti, and the party’s Presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

Addressing to journalists on Saturday, he stated that the two have no resemblance, noting that while Obi was known for his modest, thrifty, and simple lifestyle, the LP candidate in the state was the polar opposite.

The Governor accused Otti and the Abia State LP of attempting to use the “Obi Political Tsunami” to seize control of the Abia Government House.

Despite admitting that such schemes would fail since people were aware that Otti was not Obi in all aspects, Ikpeazu stated that the Obi phenomenon should not be limited to the efforts of LP.


He emphasized that doing so would belittle the great efforts of countless unhappy Nigerians and first-time voters who were not members of any political party but saw Obi as a genuine contender.

Ikpeazu said: “In Abia, our people know that Obi is not Otti. They know that both of them represent different things altogether. Their records are there. Obi, as a governor did not retrench Anambra workers, but Otti, as a bank Managing Director retrenched bank workers.

“Obi is not arrogant. He is a very simple man with a very humble lifestyle, but Otti is the opposite of Obi. He flies around in private jets and takes up entire floors of 7-Star Hotels for his accommodation. That’s a huge gap from the man he’s hiding under him to grab power.

“Again, it’s on record that Obi left the economy of Anambra very healthy, but Otti left a dead bank before moving into politics. These are verifiable facts. That one claims to look like someone doesn’t mean he’s even close to that person.

“Abia is not one of those places where people cannot distinguish the good from the bad. It’s very easy to separate this ‘Tare from the Wheat’ before they get mature because their differences are very obvious like the night and the day.

“What are we talking about? Who are they trying to compare with Obi? Let us make it very clear that while Obi canvases for job creation, this Otti knows about the collapse of companies like Modern Ceramics in Umuahia and the Star Paper Mills in Aba that led to job losses.”


According to the Governor, Peter Obi has his investments scattered all over Anambra State, while Otti has no single investment in Abia State.

He said: “Let nobody claim ownership of the Obi wave or try to be more important than others. It was a movement that all Nigerian citizens, especially the youths saw as the only way of restoring their future. The Labour Party was just an available channel.


“The Obi phenomenon was a combination of all pro-Obi servant leadership styles, it was not a feat that can be attributed to the Labour Party per se. 50% of the voters were apolitical first-time voters, while 30 % were drawn from all other political parties.

“It will diminish the Obi phenomenon if we narrow his impact to the effort of the Labour Party. So, let some people stop hiding under Obi to magically get into government. Let them come out as they are. Obi has proven who he is and he doesn’t need an introduction anymore.”
