President Tinubu’s portrait is in Abia State House, Says Gov. Otti

By Ologeh Joseph

The Governor of Abia State Dr Alex Otti has debunked claims that the portrait of President Bola Tinubu is not in the Abia State House

In a statement signed by Ferdinand Ekeoma
Special Adviser
Media and Publicity to the
Governor and made available to Irohinoodua condemned former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani Kayode for attacking the State Governor without getting the facts.

He said claims by Chief Femi Fani-Kayode that the Governor of Abia State, His Excellency, Dr. Alex Otti, OFR refused to hang the official Portrait of the President of Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR in his office on the grounds that Governor Otti allegedly doesn’t recognise “Alhaji Tinubu as his president” is false

He said unlike Chief Fani-Kayode who had manifested his “known trademark of pettiness and lack of decorum when he roundly and repeatedly abused and blackmailed President Tinubu in the past,” Governor Alex Otti, in line with his upbringing, orientation, character and exposure does not act irrationally and thus could not have under any circumstances refused to recognise President Tinubu as the President of Nigeria, especially when he and the President enjoy a long standing relationship that transcends politics.

He said further “Governor Otti had President Tinubu’s picture featuring prominently on the first page of his Inauguration Brochure, and also ensured that dozens of the President’s portraits were produced and distributed to different government offices.”
Otti said Chief Fani-Kayode’s poor strategy of trying to use Governor Otti’s name to secure an appointment in Tinubu’s government is dead on arrival because the President knows that Fani-Kayode is an unstable character who is notorious for spewing venom and vituperation against the innocent for the purpose of economic survival.

“The fact that Fani-Kayode, a former Minister has reduced himself to the level of going to Social Media to copy fake news and use same as basis to insult and abuse a sitting Governor, shows how damaged and disorientated he has become, hence the need to say a word of prayer on his head” he stated

It asked the public to disregard what it called malicious allegation and see it as an idle gossip from a mischief maker who desires to sow a seed of discord and disaffection for selfish political gains.
