Supporters of the Labour Party in Abia State, Southeast Nigeria have celebrated the election of the party’s governorship candidate in the state, Alex Otti, with a display of casket in what they called burial of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its reign in the state.

The PDP has been in control of the state for the past 24 years but the people of the state have described the years of the PDP-led government as a hellish one with someone saying that he shed “tears of joy, tears of freedom from the shackles of Ikpeazu’s insensitive Government made up of looters.”

The State Returning Officer of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Nnenna Otii, on Wednesday afternoon declared Otti the winner of Saturday’s governorship election in the state after the completion of the collation of results following its earlier suspension.

According to the electoral umpire, Otti won in 10 local government areas while the PDP won in six. The Young Peoples Party (YPP) won in one local government area.

Otti was declared the winner after polling a total of 172,386 votes to defeat his closest contender, Okechukwu Ahiwe of PDP who polled a total of 88,174 votes.

Reacting to the outcome of the election, @General_Oluchi tweeted that “Abia state have really suffered in the hands of bad leaders dating back to Orji Uzo Kalu, especially those in Ariaria market, and it hurts me that Okezie Ikpeazu will walk away unbothered after all he did to this state.

“All the money he looted needs to be recovered. The ones he hid in his big stomach should be recovered too.”
