Otti tasks transition committee to produce policy road map




Ogbonnaya Ikokwu, Umuahia

The Abia State Governor-elect, Dr Alex Otti, has inaugurated a transition committee to assist in the take-off of his administration on May 29, 2023.

Otti tasked the committee headed by Mr Victor Onyenkpa to produce a policy document that would forge a direction and developmental agenda for Abia State, in line with his vision and campaign promises.

He pointed out that the choice of Aba, the commercial hub of the state, for the inauguration of the council was strategic as well as significant with the Enyimba City being the centrepiece of the incoming administration’s economic and infrastructural development plan.

The governor-elect said professionals and technocrats in business, economics and entrepreneurs were chosen to serve in the committee because of the need to lay a strong foundation for the rescue and development of Abia State.

He said, “We want to thank you all for honouring us with your time to help us lay the foundation our administration will build on.

“We intend to run a slim government in terms of political appointments, but then it is our intention to create enough opportunity for businesses to thrive and succeed in the state.

“We have chosen Aba for this inauguration today because Aba is the heartbeat of Abia economy despite the fact that it has been abandoned for many years by successive administrations.

“We want to build an industrial hub with steady power supply, renewable energy and other solid infrastructure for the economy of the state to grow”.

Responding, Onyenkpa, said the task before the committee was to produce a road map that would aid Otti to meet up with the expectations of residents of the state.

He added that the committee members had accepted to do the job despite the enormous challenges it came with.

“Alex Otti is expected to perform a miracle concerning the transformation of Abia State and our job is to give him a road map that would help him to perform that miracle”, Onyenkpa said.
