Eze-elect lauds Otti for transformative leadership in Abia

The Eze-elect of Nsirimo Amaise autonomous community in Umuahia South LGA of Abia state, Dr Charles Chukuemeka Amanze has lauded the transformative leadership style of Governor Alex Otti on his one year in office.

Dr Amanze commended Governor Otti and expressed delight that the banker turned politician was delivering the dividends of democracy to the citizens.

He added that his activities in the past one year had impacted positively on the state.

The Eze-elect who made this commendation during a press conference in Umuahia, said the governor made giant strides in all facets of the state’s economy which he said had elicited positive response from Abia citizens home and abroad.

He further hailed the governor’s focus on all sectors, from massive building of road infrastructure to revamping the health sector, security, refocusing of education sector to meet the needs of the 21st century.

Amanze extolled Otti’s prioritisation of worker’s welfare, driving grassroots sports development and harnessing the talents of the youth and even children. 

The incoming monarch also commended the rejigging of the state security apparatchik to ensure that Abians go to sleep with their two eyes closed and that investments were protected. 

He noted that Otti ‘s energetic forays into trade, commerce and investment have seen many countries and investors indicating their interest to come to Abia, not forgetting his zeal to lift the womenfolk and the down-trodden.

“These efforts by the Dr. Alex Otti–led administration have resulted in the enviable, cohesive transformation of Abia as the fastest growing state in the federation under the present dispensation.

“Governor Alex Otti, has no doubt, raised the bar of development in Abia and we pray to God Almighty to sustain him and enable him to realise his vision of a New Abia,” Dr. Amanze said.

Dr. Amanze, however, decried the lack of amenities, especially roads, in Nsirimo, lamented that it was difficult to access the community through the neighbouring Abam community  due to lack of good road network in the area.

According to him, “since the creation of Abia state, no administration has put the blade of a bulldozer on the Abam-Nsirimo link road and other internal roads in the community.”

He, therefore, passionately appealed to the governor, the Mayor of Umuahia South and the authorities of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) to come to the aid of Nsirimo community by providing it with access roads.
