Inauguration and flag off of other historic projects including the a central bus terminal behind Okpara Square, are on-going as part of activities marking his One Year in Office.

Abians from different political divides trooped out en mass to witness the colourful ceremonies which attracted the presence of the Emir of Azare in Nassarawa State.

In commemoration of his first anniversary in office, Governor Otti had held a town hall meeting with the people and stakeholders of Abia Central, comprising Umuahia North, Ikwuano, Umuahia South, Isialangwa North, and South and Osisioma Local Government Areas.

The Eastern Updates reports that the ceremony took place at the International Conference Center Ogurube Layout, Umuahia, Abia State.

Reading his speech titled, A Meeting with king makers, Otti described the people as the kingmakers.

You are the ones that made me a governor, without you I wouldn’t have been here. You are the ones we are answerable to. I therefore owe my responsibility to you all individually, and collectively, noting that power belongs to God and no body can boast of that,” he said.

He appreciated the mayors, the members of the national and state assembly, for the success of the programme.
