Abia State Governor, Alex Otti, stated that during his leadership, the people of the state will finally benefit from democracy.

He made this announcement while meeting with a delegation from Course 17, Syndicate 2 of the National Institute for Security Studies, Abuja, at Government House Umuahia.

Otti emphasized that his goal is to ensure that all citizens, not just a select few politicians, experience good governance. He criticized past politicians who have only focused on enriching themselves with public funds since the start of democracy in 1999.

The governor announced that he had cleared the backlog of pension arrears owed to retirees since 2014, showing his commitment to the people who had been mistreated by the ruling elite.

He said, “Never again shall Abia pensioners be owed their pension.”

He stated that Abia pensioners would never again go unpaid and that they would now be paid on the 28th of every month starting in April, along with the regular workers.

“This is the people’s time; politicians have helped themselves enough for the past 24 years,”  Otti added.
