Abia state governor-elect, Dr Alex Otti, has made serious allegations against some of his opponents following his recent sack by a Federal High Court in Kano.
Specifically, Otti accused Abia state government, and the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of masterminding and sponsoring the misinformation against him.
Otti accused them of instigating the (judicial coup) to possibly distract him.
He made this known when he addressed a press conference Friday, may 19, in Umuahia through his Media Adviser, Ferdinand Ekeoma.
The statement read:
“The report being sponsored and widely circulated by the PDP and Abia State Government alleging that a Kano High Court has sacked the Abia Governor-elect, Dr. Alex Otti, OFR, is baseless, unfounded and misleading, and thus should be ignored.
“For the records, though the perpetrators targeted the Abia Governor-elect and the people of Abia for that legal coup, they were not courageous enough to confront him in the open, hence he was never joined as a party for fear that his eminently qualified lawyers would take the perpetrators to the cleaners.
“To put the records straight and reassure our teeming supporters and millions of Abians who are still celebrating the liberation of Abia, we wish to emphatically state that the Federal High Court in Kano did not issue any order on Abia Labour Party candidates nor the Governor-Elect, Dr. Alex Otti because, unlike those who brought the suit to steal the Abia peoples’ mandate, the court was conscious of its powers and careful not not to fall into the booby trap set for it by the PDP and Abia state government.”
