|Otti's Shocker As Jonathan Snubs Him In Aba by emindu: 4:27pm On Mar 26, 2015|
By Emeka Nwachukwu
March 24, 2015 will remain indelible in my mind for many reasons. First, it was a day that President Goodluck Jonathan commissioned the Phase 1, Simple Cycle Gas Alaoji Power Plant in Aba, Abia State. A bold step taken by President Jonathan to ensure that Aba and environs enjoy steady power supply.
Second, President Jonathan the same day inspected the Geometrics Power Station; the brainchild of Prof. Barth Nnaji. The President pledged to correct all the human error stopping the power plant from taking off.
Third, the President's visit to Geometrics came with a big drama. Before his arrival at the venue, the factional governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Allex Otti who was accompanied by his wife sat together in one of the front roll seats which was conspicuous enough. Immediately the master of ceremony announced the arrival of Mr. President everybody at the arena stood up to welcome him and his entourage. Mr. & Mrs. Otti got the shock of their lives.
Call it providence you may be right. Governor T.A.Orji the chief host of the number citizen of the country accompanied by the PDP governorship candidate, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, sandwiched Mr. President right from the entrance gate where he alighted from his car, walked him down straight to inspect the facilities at the Geometrics. When they got to the point where Otti strategically positioned himself, Mr. President simply made a straight face. He refused to look at Otti's direction or respond to gesticulations. At this point, both Otti and his wife were transfixed for some minutes before they could recover from the shock. When it dawn on him that Okezuo Abia was the chosen one, Otti who could not believe what hit him through his spinal cord, apparently to save face stood up from his seat to join Mr. President. But it was too late. As a desperate man he is, the shortish Otti who stood up to catch up with Mr. President five minutes after the latter snubbed him moved like a fowl beaten by the rain. He was barely dragging himself to move around the massive compound.
Sensing danger, Prof. Nnaji tactically refused to acknowledge Otti when he presented his address. Our 'Cowboy' President also behaved like the first speaker when he was called upon to deliver his address. He refused to acknowledge Otti throughout his address. Otti's wife intermittently gave her husband handkerchief to clean the stream of hot sweat pumping out from his forehead. The shock waves were too much for Otti who goes about telling people that the President asked to contest for governorship of Abia. Cheap lies!
At the Aba Sports Club where he addressed the business community, President Jonathan publicly announced that Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu will succeed Ochendo Global. He urged Abians to vote Ikpeazu for governor, Governor Orji for Senate and vote for other PDP candidates from state to federal levels.

It's Abians that have the final say; not GEJ, not PDP, and certainly not the useless Abia Governor!

Op is a liar why can't I upload pictures Seun...I have pictures of GEJ and Otti
|Re: Otti's Shocker As Jonathan Snubs Him In Aba by Remarkable: 4:46pm On Mar 26, 2015|
No doubt GEJ and Oti have been acquainted for a while... thing is, while Oti was in Abuja, fraternizing with GEJ and receiving awards as OFN or whatever it was... Ikpeazu was back home in Abia working for the people, cleaning up Aba and laboring with locals... any wonder why groups are lining up behind him? Ukwa east , ukwa west, obioma and isiala ngwa egc. Oti just came at the wrong time, sadly for him, its a competitive Ngwa son that is his challenger (unlike what we have at the national level)

Geometric power plant will boost industrial
activities in Aba, says Otti
The governorship candidate of the All Progressives
Grand Alliance (APGA) in Abia state, Dr. Alex Otti,
has expressed the hope that the completion of
Geometric power plant in Aba will help to provide
uninterrupted power supply to the commercial city
and its environs. Otti made the observation in an interview with
newsmen at the project site during an inspection
tour of the facility by President Goodluck Jonathan
on Tuesday, adding that the take off of the plant
would help to rejuvenate industrial and economic
activities in the city.. He said: “This is a good project and it means a whole lot for Aba and its environs
because the day Geometric switches on power, Aba
will begin to enjoy 24-hour uninterrupted power
supply. “This will further jumpstart a lot of economic and
industrial activities in Aba.” Otti regretted that a lot of small and medium scale
enterprises in the city were unable to operate ‘due
to epileptic power supply adding: “So the hope is
that as soon as the company comes alive, the
industries will come back and employment will be
generated.’’ He opined that the boost in economic activities would help to reduce social tension, while
security would be easilymanaged. Otti, who joined other dignitaries in Abia state to
welcome the president, hailed the Federal
Government’s promise to intervene in resolving the
disagreement between Geometric and the Bureau
of Private Enterprise (BPE). He said that the company had been at loggerheads
with BPE over the status of Aba business district,
which ought to be carved out as an island for
Geometric, but later sold by BPE to Interstate Electric
as part of Enugu Disco. He said government’s intervention would enable
the company to complete the little work left for the
plant to take off. The former Diamond Bank chief executive officer
recalled how the bank intervened in 2011 to
ensure that work resumed on the project after it
suffered a setback due to the global economic
recession. He said that he took the project to the
board of the bank, when he joined in 2011 and got the bank’s approval “to restart the project again”
adding that due to the huge amount involved, he
also took the matter to the former Governor of the
Central Bank, (now Emir of Kano) Malam Lamido
Sanusi, for further discussion.

Otti and Prof Barth Nnaji are connected to Geometric Power Station through the Nigerian Banking don - Paschal Dozie (who seem to own the station by proxy) ...not confirmed though.

What do you take the President for. He should greet everyone? Who is Otti in the first place? A governorship aspirant of a different political party to that of the President.
Most celebrated politicians are local champions till they make it to the sit of power there are nothing but aspirants. Otti fall in this category including Ikpazu and the rest.
Enough said, stop giving importance to no bodies.

So u expect Gej to support an APGA candidate against his own party candidate running fr the same post? Bt the beauty is that the electorate will decide the fate of the two men cos as u knw T.A orji is the one front ing this ikepazu guy, as u also knw that T.A orji is the worst governor in Nigeria as we speak,u are also aware that Abia people Aba to be precise hate and distaste him and will never vote fr any one anointed by him.so if u are a supporter of ikepazu then am sorry and if u are in support of the present administration lead by that short demon TA ORIJ then shame on u! #vegatalks
