Governor Alex Otti

A leading entrepreneur in Ukwa West Local Government Area of Abia State, Chief Lazarus Enwereuzor has called on indigenes and residents of Abia to give support to governor of Abia State, Dr. Alex Otti.

Otti was inaugurated as the governor of Abia State on May 29, 2023.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Enwereuzor, who is a successful businessman said that it would be in the best interest of the people of Abia State to rally round the newly elected governor to provide the necessary leadership needed to improve the fortunes of the State.

He expressed concerns that unhealthy oppositions against a government that has not spent one month in office could cause distractions to its leadership, stressing that unity and patience were necessary ingredients for building a strong and virile State.

Enwereuzor described a situation whereby some people had deliberately taken it upon themselves to attack the government of Otti as retrogressive, adding that trust was crucial to the sustenance of a peaceful State.

The entrepreneur appealed to the Dr. Alex Otti led government to come to the rescue of Ukwa West Local Government Area, which according to him has been neglected by the Abia State government for decades.

He said:

“It is a source of worry to many Asa sons, daughters and residents that in spite of the huge revenue that accrues to the government of Abia State because of Ukwa West, being an oil producing area, there is practically nothing to point at as the contribution of the government towards improving on the quality of life of the people.”

Chief Enwereuzor, who retired from the Shell Petroleum Development Company, SPDC, before establishing a flourishing hotel business, wondered why there has been unprecedented neglect of Ukwa West in the areas of roads, schools, hospitals, electricity supply since 2003 till date, pointing out that the people of the local government has so much hope that Otti’s government would address the challenges of the area.
