Abia: Otti welcomes defecting YPP lawmakers to LP, gives assurance

Governor Alex Otti of Abia State has welcomed two members of the Young Progressives Party, YPP, in the state House of Assembly who defected to the Labour Party, LP.

Otti received the defectors, Iheanacho Nwogu, representing Osisioma North State Constituency, and Mr Fine Ahuama, representing Osisioma South State Constituency, at the state’s Government House in Umuahia.

Receiving the defectors, Otti assured the duo of a level playing field in LP, while urging them to work towards bringing their constituents into the party.

According to Otti: “One thing that I have assured members of the House of Assembly is that, because we are running a transparent kind of leadership, we will never come to you with anything untoward.

“We don’t have anything to hide because the Abia Government is working for the people of Abia.

“I even told them in Rivers that when you are governing people and they’re not happy there’s something wrong with the leadership.

“This is because the essence of governance is stewardship and I am happy because my people are happy.”
