The member-elect for Ikwuano/Umuahia North/South Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Chief Obi Aguocha has confirmed that Abia State Labour Party governorship candidate, Dr. Alex Otti, having satisfied all the constitutional requirements will formally be declared the Governor-elect soon.
Chief Aguocha explained that INEC has finished the Obingwa LGA election review, including the governorship and two House of Assembly seats, and concluded that only BVAS accredited and captured voters will count as real voters.
“Earlier, rumour had it that Obingwa had almost 26,000 accredited voters for both the House of Assembly and governorship elections, respectively. Now we can verifiably state that the total number of all the accredited voters for both elections were less than 11,000”, he stated.
He further added that INEC has accepted this BVAS figure as the rightful and real votes accruing from the entire Obingwa LGA. “With this development, PDP have also lost one House of Assembly seat previously declared for them in one of two Obingwa State Constituencies.
“A new dawn and fresh air has come to Abia State. I am grateful to God, my election was used as His mighty tool to liberate Abia State from bandage. Dr. Otti’s election has consolidated the liberation, and granted us freedom from tyrants, happiness, peace and compassion shall engender a purposeful reset and sustainable development of Abia State”, the elated incoming lawmaker declared
