Abia poll: Don’t witch-hunt your opponents, Nkire tells Alex Otti
All Progressives Congress (APC) National Caucus member, Chief Sam Nkire has admonished the Abia state Governor-Elect, Dr Alex Otti to guard against witch-hunting his opponents.
In a congratulatory message which he made available to newsmen in Abuja on Sunday, Nkire described the Abia State governor-elect as “a man whose time has come”.
He also advised Otti to place emphasis on uniting the citizenry in Abia state irrespective of their political leanings.
The APC stalwart said his only regret was that his party, APC allowed Otti to leave APC when it became obvious that he was not going to get a fair deal at the primary election.
He said: “What APC lost in Alex has become a building block and great profit to the Labour Party (LP). One thing most Abians give to Alex Otti is that he is one of the most zealous and prepared for the arduous task of taking Abia State to the enviable, developmental height it and its people ought to occupy.
“I hope Otti would quickly get down to the business of uplifting and uniting his people, the people of Abia State and forget about witch-hunt and opponent-chasing”.
Nkire added that as a former, respected, APC member, the incoming Governor of Abia State would leverage on his past relationships to attract a ‘federal presence’ from the ruling party to the state.
