Mr. Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in the February 25 presidential election, has urged Abia State Governor Alex Otti to focus on providing excellent governance to the people of the state, particularly the less affluent.

Obi argued that Nigeria’s less privileged citizens had endured enough and were subjected to unspeakable suffering.

The former governor of Anambra State made the announcement on Monday via his Twitter handle, following a thanksgiving service held in Otti’s honor on Sunday.

Obi asked Otti to prioritize initiatives and policies aimed at improving health, and education, and lifting people out of poverty.


He wrote, “Earlier today, I was in Abia State for the Thanksgiving Service of my dear friend and brother, the Governor of Abia State, Dr @alexottiofr. I used the opportunity to appeal to Gov Otti to focus on delivering good governance to the people of Abia State, especially the less privileged.”

“The less privileged people in Nigeria have been subjected to many untold hardships and have suffered enough. Programs and policies focusing on health, education, and pulling people out of poverty should be highly prioritized.”

“In the next 4 years, I do sincerely hope that the less privileged will be as happy as they are today, rejoicing for the new dawn in the State and looking forward to a better tomorrow.”

“May God give him the wisdom, strength, and understanding to take the State higher in all ramifications. God bless the good people of Abia State, as we all work towards the building of the New Nigeria.”
