Former Diamond Bank Managing Director and the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship candidate in Abia State, Dr. Alex Otti is in trouble.
The Abia State Working Committee of the party has slammed an indefinite suspension on him. The suspension was announced in a statement jointly signed by the Chairman and Secretary of the party, Rev. Augustine Ehiemere and Sunday Onukwubiri.
The party accused Otti of engaging in anti-party activities, saying that he equipped his political machinery, known as Abia First, to harass party officials and create divisions in the party.
It also accused Otti of indulging in illegal and unconstitutional activities as well as acts of insubordination to the party leadership, which “undermined the principle of party supremacy”.
The statement read: “Otti’s Abia First was set up and equipped for the sole purpose of using it to display political force, harass party officers and create divisions in the party. It is also for the promotion of his selfish and personal political objectives against the interest of the party.”
“Otti is hereby suspended indefinitely from the party with immediate effect, pending the hearing and determination of his case by a disciplinary committee to be set up by the party in the state.”
