Anyone who has encountered His Excellency, Dr. Alex Chioma Otti, OFR, will not doubt that he has a very fine brain, and as one himself, he has always paraded and surrounded himself with the finest brains. This claim is evident in the intellectual sagacity of those he selected within and outside Abia State to form his Transition Council. In selecting his team of appointees, he also searched for the best brains across tribes and tongues in the country. Hence, His Excellency is known to have always preferred quality over quantity, especially when it comes to intellectual clarity and leadership fireworks.
A careful study of the members of the Abia Global Economic Council reveals as usual that Governor Alex has eyes for the best and goes out of his way to find them wherever they can be found irrespective of their place of origin.
The Abia Economic Advisory Council is an assemblage of renowned administrators who have distinguished themselves in their respective areas of expertise and have won accolades for their ingenuity and quality leadership delivery and service to humanity.
This harvest of fine brains in his administration is a sign of leadership strength and team spirit; it does not in any way show a lack of leadership insight but an acknowledgment of the fact that two best heads are always better than one.
His Excellency has his mind and is reputed for his managerial acumen. While he is a person with great leadership ingenuity and a broad mind, it is in recognizing the fact that he is not omniscient that he has always surrounded himself with fine brains. The Abia Global Economic Advisory Council is therefore to work as a team with His Excellency, the State Exco members, and other relevant stakeholders toward the actualization of “A New Abia” mandate of His Excellency for the collective good of the state and its residents.
