Abia State Governor, Alex Otti, has said the state under his leadership, is the turn of the masses to enjoy the dividends of democracy.

Otti, who made the declaration while hosting a delegation of Course 17, Syndicate 2 of the National Institute for Security Studies, Abuja, at Government House Umuahia, said he was on a mission to make the masses and not just a handful of privileged politicians, have a taste of good governance.

He said politicians who have presided over the affairs of the state since the return of democracy in 1999, have helped themselves enough with the common patrimony.

The Governor told his audience that his recent decision to wipe off the backlog of pension arrears owed retirees since 2014, was a demonstration of his passion for the masses, who had been shortchanged by the ruling elite.

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

He added that he had also directed that they be paid along with workers on the 28th of every month, a directive, he affirmed, had taken effect from April.

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