Deputy Speaker Commends Governor Otti for Resurgence of Business Confidence in Abia State

By -

The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Benjamin Okezie Kalu, expressed profound satisfaction at the renewed influx of investors and businesses in Aba and other cities across Abia State. 

Attributing this positive development to the administrative prowess of the State Governor, Dr. Alex Otti, Kalu lauded the strides made in rejuvenating Abia's economy during a visit to the Governor's residence in Umuehim, Nvosi, Isiala Ngwa South Local Government Area, on Friday.

Chief Press Secretary to the Deputy Speaker, Levinus Nwabughiogu, conveyed Kalu's sentiments in a statement, highlighting the significance of Abia's resurgence in attracting favorable attention.

 Kalu emphasized his unwavering support for Governor Otti and advocated for enhanced collaboration between his office and the state government to expedite the state's development agenda.

Addressing Governor Otti directly, Kalu commended his selfless commitment to governance and pledged continued support, affirming, "As long as you are working for Abia people and we are seeing it, we will stand by you, come rain, come sunshine." He underscored the importance of economic growth in reducing unemployment and encouraged investors to explore opportunities in Abia State.

Kalu also stressed the need for synergy between legislative and executive bodies to address the state's challenges effectively, emphasizing a shift from past practices of working in isolation. 

He urged Governor Otti to remain focused amid distractions and called on the people of Abia to exercise patience, acknowledging the governor's prioritization of collective welfare over individual interests.

In a lighthearted remark, Kalu hinted at Otti's previous affiliation with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), suggesting that there was still room for Otti within the party. He cautioned members of the Labour Party to prioritize Otti's satisfaction, lest he consider returning to his former political home.

Kalu's visit underscored the collaborative spirit among political stakeholders in Abia State and highlighted the importance of fostering an enabling environment for sustainable development. As Abia continues its journey towards prosperity, the partnership between government officials and the private sector remains crucial in achieving shared goals.
