Congratulating Okezie Ikpeazu is Endorsing Criminality’ – Alex Otti

Congratulating Okezie Ikpeazu is Endorsing Criminality’ – Alex Otti

Alex Otti

The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance in Abia State, Alex Otti has declared that he will not congratulate the Peoples Democratic Party and the governor of the state, Ikezie Ikpeazu on his Supreme Court victory.

Otti, who spoke at a thanksgiving organised by his party’s state chapter noted that despite the flaws in the judgement of the Supreme Court, he had accepted the verdict and wants the governor to succeed for the general interest of the state.

He said: “To Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, let me state unequivocally that we have nothing against him as a person but the system that imposed him against all democratic norms and practices, which attached more value to his ambition than to the lives of innocent Abians.”

To buttress his point, Otti gave the governor a sneak peak of what it would take for him to succeed.

“But for the governor to succeed, he must not only repent but also purge himself of those primitive and primordial practices that have continued to present the state as theatre of absurdities.”

“He must stop the payment of monthly stipends to some lazy and jobless persons masquerading as godfathers, leaders and stakeholders. We believe that such act is evil and should not continue in the state.”

He then addressed the agents of the PDP who have harangued him for not putting up a show of good sportsmanship and congratulating Ikpeazu on his victory.

He declared that he would not congratulate the governor on the premise that his victory is undeserved.

“While we have accepted the unpopular judgment that injures the sensibilities of Abians, we cannot congratulate you as that would amount to endorsement of criminality.”

“So, rather than arrogantly demanding for unjust and undeserved congratulatory message from me and my party, the PDP should rather express remorse, seek repentance, and be humble enough to seek for forgiveness from God and Abians.”

Otti further implored his supporters who are disappointed by the turn events to hold their peace and tread softly.
