Alex Otti may have been approached to sell his election petition… but will he play ball?

No, he won’t play ball.

Alex Otti, former Diamond bank boss, turned governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance in Abia State, says he will not negotiate with the state government to trade his suit at the Abia State Elections Tribunal.

Otti, who has challenged the election of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu at the tribunal,- insists that he would not withdraw his suit for a financial return.

How much more money could a former bank boss need anyway… ?

The man says money is not an issue in this matter, as “the mandate freely given to me through the ballot is non-negotiable.”

Otti issued a statement to this effect on Sunday in Umuahia, saying that his governorship mandate is non-negotiable.

The statement read in part: “It is blatant falsehood and the wishful thinking of idle political jobbers and rumour peddlers, in their deliberate attempt to cause mischief and deceive unsuspecting members of the public.”

To negotiate away the mandate from Abia people, who trooped out en masse and voted for me because of their conviction and belief in my ability to bring about the desired change, will amount to a betrayal of the people’s trust.

And rather than betray the trust, I am more emboldened and resolute to explore all the legal means possible to reclaim the stolen mandate in order to be able to fulfill my campaign promises to put smiles on people’s faces.”
