Abia State No Longer Smelling – Patience Jonathan Speaks, Visits Gov. Otti

 

Former First Lady of Nigeria, Dame Patience Goodluck Jonathan, has passed a vote of confidence on Abia State Governor, Dr. Alex Otti, OFR, affirming the Governor has started well.

 

Mrs. Jonathan, who stopped by at Nvosi, Isialangwa South Local Government Area, country home of Governor Otti, on a courtesy visit, on Wednesday, congratulated the Governor for cleaning up the state and freeing the streets of putrid stench, which had been the lot of the state prior to Otti’s assumption of office on May 29, 2023.

 

With maternal roots from Abia (originally from Rivers State) and married to the former president, Goodluck Jonathan, from Bayelsa State, the erstwhile First Lady described Governor Otti as her brother and mentor.

“This is my home and I have come to visit my brother, my Governor in whom I’m well pleased. He’s my mentor. When I was in government, he supported me as a brother. I have come to share experience with him and to tell him congratulations, well done.

“Abia is our home. Any time, any day he calls me, I will be there for him. He is doing very, very well. He started well and I know he will end well.
