May 29: We’ll not celebrate but mark one-year anniversary — Abia govt

The Abia State Government (ABSG) has announced that as it reaches its one-year milestone on May 29, 2024, it will not celebrate the occasion but will only mark it.
The Commissioner for Information and Culture, Prince Okey Kanu, stated this while briefing the press on the outcome of this week’s Executive Council meeting presided over by Governor Alex Otti.
He disclosed, “In our usual style, we are not going to celebrate one year. We have three more to go in the first term. We will just mark it despite the numerous achievements of the government in just one year.
If you recall when we turned 100 days in office, many people were expecting us to celebrate. We are not going to celebrate as such, but we will mark the day.
It will be a period of introspection and refocus for the government. We will use a few soft events to mark the day.”
“The old narrative about Abia State being underdeveloped and lagging behind in the comity of states has changed dramatically within this period.”
Prince Kanu announced the activities lined up to mark the first anniversary of Governor Alex Otti’s administration. These include the Governor holding town hall meetings across the three Senatorial zones of the state.
The meeting in Abia North will take place on Thursday this week at the Ohafia Local Government headquarters, Abia Central on Friday this week in Umuahia, and Abia South at the Aba Recreation Club on Tuesday next week.
These Town Hall meetings are part of the inclusive governance agenda of the Alex Otti-led administration.
He further disclosed that the wife of the Governor, Mrs. Priscilla Otti, will visit destitute homes and vulnerable people in the state on Saturday this week, while Sunday the 26th will feature an anniversary Thanksgiving Service at the International Conference Center in Umuahia.
An anniversary Executive Council meeting will be held on Monday next week, and a statewide broadcast will take place on Wednesday, May 29.
The Information Commissioner reiterated that the Governor had directed security agencies in the state to locate the cyclist who recently escaped with three school children from one family.
He assured the family of the timely recovery of the children unhurt and cautioned parents against the cavalier attitude of handing children over to strangers in the state.
Responding to questions, the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Prince Uzor Nwachukwu, disclosed that Governor Otti has directed the expansion of the road leading to the JAAC building.
Over one and a half billion naira has been injected to complete the building, marking an unprecedented investment at the local government level by the administration of Dr. Alex Otti.
Also responding to questions, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Publicity, Mr Ferdinand Ekeoma, noted that Governor Alex Otti, being open-minded, does not intend to ignore any project started and abandoned by previous administrations, describing the JAAC building and other such projects as typical examples.
