OPINION: Dr. Alex Otti – The Morning Determines The Day! – Dr. M.O.Ubani


Once again let me use this golden opportunity to congratulate His Excellency, Dr Alex Otti, Abia State Governor-Elect, for his victory in the last governorship election in our dear state. I want to also congratulate the good people of Abia State for their determination which ensured the peaceful change of leadership in the state.

I decided to make this piece a public opinion because it is not only focused on giving some advice to the incoming government but to react to some of the negative posturings from the outgoing government over the proactive steps of His Excellency, Dr. Alex Otti.

I am minded to address these narratives in the public domain emanating from some of those within the outgoing administration in Abia State who think that Dr Alex Otti is in competition with the outgoing governor because he is forward looking. I think it is important that I do it in order to add my voice to other voices of reason, specifically to “seating ducks” who have been at the corridors of power in Abia State for years with no visible evidence of performance.

These group of people have been out there attacking Dr. Alex Otti for inviting Julius Berger for on-the-hand assessment of collapsed infrastructures around the city of Aba.

I was shocked to hear their unimaginative narratives with regard to this visit, especially those who tried to counter his engagement with executives of companies that will be important partners to Abia’s development by saying there are no two governors in Abia State. They were so ridiculous that one wonders if they are just waking up after eight years to realize that they have been in power all these years.

These people had entire eight years to prove that they are in power but chose to loiter around the seat of power thinking that they will remain in power forever. Alas, God spoke against their arrogance expressly and God has the final say.

It is obvious that they are afraid that Dr Alex Otti is going to achieve what they failed to achieve all their years in government. And as we do say, “fortune smiles on those who appropriate time maximally”

I want to commend Dr Alex Otti for demonstrating that he is ready to hit the ground running by hosting leaders of conglomerates and company executives preparatory to hand over date. He has started on the right footing. This sense of urgency is required because Abia State is years behind her manifest destiny and potentials in all ramifications and requires the kind of zeal Dr Alex Otti has exhibited. Those who have criticized his actions are simply ignorant of what is at stake.

I hope these were not the same people that led the outgoing governor to his abysmal performance and uninspiring leadership.

Going forward we need people with superior intelligence, discipline, and ingenuity to substitute for lack of resources as it is now clear that the outgoing administration and others before him have put Abia State in a financial difficulty requiring Abians to think out of the box. It is not all about money but the requisite zeal and conglomerate agenda for transformative governance.

I will advise Dr Alex Otti to do on-the-hand assessment of all federal roads in Abia State to determine what needs to be done urgently to make them motorable so as to improve the productivity of our people. Roads like Umuahia/Ikot Ekpene, Aba/ Ikot/Ekpene, Aba/Enugu/Port-Harcourt, Umuahia/Ohafia, Umuahia/Bende/Arochukwu, Isikwuato/Uturu/Okigwe and other federal roads within the state that are essential for trade and productive engagement must also be considered for completion and maintenance. Abia State Government under our able governor should approach  Federal Emergency Maintenance Agency (FEMA) and possibly make special financial provisions and supervise them to intervene on federal roads so that there could be quick result.
