Abia State Governor-elect, Alex Otti, has set up a 75-member committee to organise his inauguration on the 29th of May.
The Head of the Media and Publicity Committee, Kazie Uko, confirmed the development in a statement on Monday in Isialangwa.
The Eastern Updates can confirm that the Director-General of the Alex Otti Campaign Council, Chief Obioma Acho, will serve as the coordinator of the committee.
Uko said the committee, which was inaugurated on Friday in Otti’s country home in Nvosi, Isialangwa South Local Government Area, had eight sub-committees.
In a related development, former Military head of State, General Yakubu Gowon has finally bowed to pressure and suspended the Prayer Rally which was earlier put together to usher in the administration of Otti.
Gowon, the founder of Nigeria Prays, had come under fire over his plan to visit Abia state on the ground of a Prayer Rally, scheduled for Sunday, the 23rd of April, 2023.
However, the coordinator of the Prayer Rally, Apostle Chuks Alozie during the weekend, said Gowon had suspended the programme due to criticisms.
According to Alozie, Gowon pointed out that he refused to be dragged into the murky waters of politics over a genuine call for prayers.
