Posted by

Human rights lawyer, Monday Ubani has tasked the incoming administration of the Labour Party (LP) in Abia State, to ensure an improvement of critical infrastructure and boost the economy of the state.

Ahead of the May 29th formal inauguration of the new administration, Ubani recommended the creation of more local government administrative areas in Abia State to improve governance structure at the grassroots level.

He said, “There are some local government areas that require further division to ensure comprehensive grassroots development.

“The incoming governor must ensure that the two heads of the other arms of government are in harmonious relationship with the executive branch to foster the smooth running of government for the benefit of the people of Abia.

“Alex Otti has the temperament to actualize this ambition with requisite checks and balances in place,” the legal practitioner also added.

The lawyer also suggested that every revenue-generating agency like lands, finance, tax, transport, motor parks etc, be digitalized with little human interference to ensure maximum return on revenue needed to fulfil all the developmental frameworks and other electoral promises.

Ubani further tasked the incoming Abia government to observe the rule of law, respect citizens’ fundamental human rights, run humane governance, quick and proactive response to emergencies, treating inevitable needs and problems of the people with utmost dispatch.

“Otti is advised to prioritize these things to touch and rebuild the confidence of Abians towards genuine leadership in Abia which his election represents”.

Continuing, he opined that Otti will push his governance to such a standard that will make Abia become the standard-bearer of governance under the new dispensation immediately he is sworn in as Governor of Abia State.

Ubani partly said: “Dr Alex Otti is kindly requested with great respect, to arise and shine, for the light of God is come upon him”.

Recall that Otti, the LP flagbearer in Abia State was declared winner of the just-concluded 2023 main governorship elections by INEC, after polling a total of 175, 467 votes cast to beat close rivals, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Okey Ahiwe, who scored 88,529 votes to come second.

Others were, Engr. Enyinnaya Chima Nwafor of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) who emerged in third place with 28,972 votes casts, and Chief Ikechi Emenike of All Progressives Congress (APC), also scored a total number of 8,24,091 votes to gain fourth place.
