The country home of the Abia State Governor-Elect Dr. Alex Otti has remained a destination of choice as high profile corporate chief executives continue to call on the incoming Governor.

On Friday, the Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the United Bank for Africa (UBA) Mr. Oliver Alawuba led a team of very senior management staff of the pan African bank to Umuehim, Nvosi, Isialangwa Local Government Area of Abia, on a courtesy visit to Otti.

Alawuba congratulated Dr. Otti on his electoral victory at the March 18, 2023 governorship election in Abia State, where the Labour Party (LP) candidate effectively ended 24 years of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) hegemony on the state.

The visit afforded the Abia Governor-Elect a nostalgic opportunity to reflect on his days at UBA, where he worked as a Principal Manager overseeing the corporate banking sector for the entire South Division with the responsibility of growing the oil and gas business for the bank.

Dr. Otti has been meeting with several groups, corporate organisations and individuals, since he was declared Governor-Elect of Abia on March 22, 2023 by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). Many of the visitors come to felicitate with him on his victory at the polls, while some others come with proposals to partner with the state in the area of investments and infrastructural development.

One of the earlier callers was Nigeria’s telecom giant MTN, whose team of senior management, led by the Chief Enterprise e-Business Officer, Lynda Saint Nwafor, said MTN would be looking at collaborating with the incoming Abia State government in different sectors, including telecommunications access, empowering the small and medium enterprises (SMEs), education, security, and E-Governance among others.

Just two days ago, the Managing Director of Nigeria’s construction giant, Julius Berger, Dr. Lars Richter, was at Umuehim to visit with the Governor-Elect. It was a rare visit by such high ranking officer of the company.
