The Ohanaeze helmsman who said he had confirmed the reports about Otti’s legendary achievements so far in office, urged him to sustain the trajectory.

Chief Iwuanyanwu also said that Igbo land is replete with abundant natural resources including crude oil, limestone, uranium, coal, among others.

He, therefore, called on Igbo investors to think home and tap into the unharnessed natural resources found in the region for economic development.

The Ohanaeze PG said there was need to change the misconception about Ndigbo by non Igbos, stressing that only Ndigbo and not outsiders can better tell their stories.

Receiving the Ohanaeze delegation, Governor Otti thanked Chief Iwuanyanwu for the endorsement, and said it would spur him to achieve more.

Otti who expressed concern over the economic condition of Ndigbo said he came to office prepared because he understood the problem of the people.

According to him, one of the major challenges of the people is access road, hence his resolve to tackle it headlong.

Otti said his aim was to make Abia a reference point for development in the country, assuring that by the time he is done, Abia will be a leading state in so many sectors.

He noted that already a number of investors had indicated interest in investing in the state, adding that very soon the issue of power will be tackled as Geometric Power Plant Aba will be inaugurated by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Otti said that he had approved that an assessment of the International Glass Industry, Aba and other moribund industries be done to enable his Government take decision on whether to retrofit them or build new ones, adding that Abia has many mineral resources that would be harnessed.

The Governor pledged to give Ohaneze Ndigbo all the support, and commended Chief Iwuanyanwu for accepting to serve Ndigbo, describing Igbo as industrious, business-like and lovers of education.

Other members of the Ohanaeze leadership were on the delegation.
