A mild drama played out in Umuahia on Saturday as Abia State Governor, Alex Otti stormed the venue of the 76th birthday celebration and grand reception for former Senate President, Adolphus Wabara.

The event was organized by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. Otti is of the Labour Party, LP.

The governor arrived at the event while the acting National Chairman of the PDP, Umar Damagun, was making his speech. The PDP governors of Enugu, Peter Mbah; Bauchi, Bala Mohammed; Edo, Godwin Obaseki; and Oyo, Seyi Makinde, were also present.

Otti’s entrance threw the large crowd into frenzy, as some PDP members started singing his praises while others expressed surprise at his presence.

Some of the PDP members were also seen expressing surprise that immediate past Abia governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, did not attend the grand reception of the BoT Chairman of his party.

In his speech at the event, Otti told the PDP members that he is the governor of all Abia people irrespective of party affiliation, as according to him, elections and litigations have been concluded.

He expressed regrets that some people allegedly sent messages claiming that Abia is no longer safe to visit.

Otti thanked the PDP governors for shunning the “fake security alert” to be in Abia, even as he described the celebrant, Wabara, as a good man.
