A Chieftain of the Labour Party, LP, Mr. Philemon Asonye Ogbonna has appealed to the people of Ukwa West Local Government Area to accord the Abia State LP candidate, Dr. Alex Otti a rousing welcome.
Otti is scheduled to pay a Campaign visit on Thursday to Ukwa West where he will have a Town-hall meeting with the people of the area at Lenzor Hotel, Ezendioma.
In a statement, Ogbonna said it was important for Ukwa people to come out enmasse to welcome Otti, and listen to his programmes for the development of Abia State.
Ogbonna, who is also the Leader of the party in Ipu West Ward of Ukwa West, expressed confidence in the ability and capacity of the LP candidate to take Abia out of the darkness it was speedily drifting into as a result of maladministration.
He described Otti as a man with the magic wand to change the economic fortunes of State for the better, adding that the time had come to give candidates with sound background and high pedigree the opportunity to take over governance at all levels.
“It will be sad if our people allow the plundering of our common patrimony to continue without us rising from slumber to challenge the monster that is determined to put us into perpetual misery”, he said.
Ogbonna assured that the Ukwa West chapter of the LP would do its best to make sure that the Otti emerged victorious in the forthcoming general elections.
