Alex Otti Reiterates Commitment To Good Governance In Abia 



Abia Governor Prioritises Civil Service Reform Over New Employment

Governor Alex Otti of Abia State has reiterated his commitment to the betterment of the state through good governance, News About Nigeria reports.

He made this known during a solidarity visit by various groups and supporters of the member representing Isialangwa South State Constituency, Chief Rowland Chinwend.

He noted that he is invested in the progress and development of Abia State, adding that his second year in office will be far better than the first.

The governor also maintained that the funds spent on the airport project by the previous administration would be refunded if the airport is not found, as over N10 billion was spent on the project.

He disclosed that his administration would soon commence a medical city project in Abia, which would attract people with serious health issues to the state for adequate medical care.

“I established a forensic audit of our account as soon as I was sworn in and the report turns out that a lot of money was looted, stolen brazenly and part of the one I mentioned was the N10 billion Abia airport project. They started insulting me. If you follow what is happening in the media, you will know that what I said is true.

“We are looking for our money. If we are not able to find the airport, they will have to refund us our money. We are not punishing anybody; they should refund the money they stole. Let’s use it to work for our people.

“Our place must develop. We will continue to build roads, we will continue to clean up the environment, we will continue to create jobs, and we will continue to put our state on the map,” he stated.

Otti further promised to revamp the educational system of the state and make the medical system on par with the best in the world.

He stressed that his administration was not fighting anybody but only interested in recovering looted funds and achieving good governance, and therefore urged the people of the state to continue supporting his administration for the betterment of the state.
