Governor Okezie Ikpeazu Congratulates Labour Party Candidate And Winner Of March 18 Governorship Election In Abia State, Alex Otti

 Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has congratulated the Labour Party candidate and winner of the March 18 governorship election in the state, Alex Otti.

The incumbent, in a statement shortly after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), declared Otti as the winner of the poll, said the Labour Party candidate fought a long battle over a very long period of time and should be commended for his staying power and resilience.

The governor and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) also urged all Otti’s opponents including his party’s candidate, Okey Ahiwe not to distract the incoming governor with court cases.

Ikpeazu said the governor-elect must see his victory as a higher call to service to the people of Abia State.

Reports say Otti trounced his opponents like Okey Ahiwe of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Enyinnaya Nwafor of the Young Peoples Party (YPP).

The Returning Officer of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the state, Professor Nnenna Nnannaya-Oti says Otti polled 175,467 votes to emerge, the winner, while his closest rival, PDP’s Okey Ahiwe polled 88,529 votes.
