Gov Alex Otti Orders Immediate Review Of Civil Servants' Promotions

Governor Alex Otti of Abia State has revealed more of his plans for the state, News About Nigeria reports.

While speaking at an interdenominational Thanksgiving service to commemorate his first anniversary in office, on Sunday, in the state, he announced that one of his plans is to transform Umuahia, the state capital, from a glorified village into a befitting city in the next year.

He added that his administration will flag off a multi-billion-naira bus terminal project in the capital city on Tuesday, May 28.

Otti noted that he wants all parks and markets, including the railway terminal, to be in the same place, as this will contribute to a facelift for the capital city.

“We want Umuahia to be a proper capital city. We want all the parks and the markets to be in the same place, even the railway terminal.

“You know the railway is coming from Aba, and very soon, it will hit Umuahia. We have already agreed with them to move the Umuahia Central Terminal to the same place.

“So, Umuahia, in the next one year, you may not be able to recognise it if you travel,” he said.

He assured the people of harbouring no divisions, maintaining that his administration would not discriminate, no matter what part of Igbo land anyone was coming from.

The governor promised to continue to do the right things in spite of whose ox is gored and appealed to the citizens to always pray for his administration.

While promising to turn the story of Abia around for good, he stated that he is not bothered about negative comments in some quarters as he is answerable to only God and Abians.
