Governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA in Abia State , at the 2019 general elections, Dr. Alex Otti, is set to declare for the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The proposed declaration is billed to take place on Friday, August 14, 2020, at his Ward, Ehi na Uguru Ward 5, Isialangwa South L.G.A of Abia state, by 12 noon.
According to a press statement by his Media Assistant, Ferdinand Ekeoma, Otti’s decision to dump his former party was to enable him pursue his political ambition without encumbrances by the party hierarchy as was the case in APGA.
The financial expert had during a recent interview announced his exit from his former party, APGA, citing factionalization and gross abuse of the foundational ideals and ethos of the party at the highest level, and subsequently registered in the APC at his ward, Ehi na Uguru Ward 5, Isialangwa South L.G.A. of Abia state.
The statement noted that, the leadership of the APC at the highest level has promised to storm the state later for a special state wide reception for Otti and other entrants joining with him, after the Covid-19 pandemic must have reduced.
