Abia businessman to give INEC returning officer Toyota Prado

INEC Abia returning officer Nnenna Nnannaya-Oti

A businessman based in Abia State Steven Ukpabi has said he would present a Toyota Prado to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) returning officer for the state, Prof. Nnenna Nnannaya-Oti.

Oti had on Wednesday declared the Labour Party’s governorship candidate of the state, Alex Otti, as the winner of the elections after completing the suspended collation of results.

It was alleged that she was under pressure by the state government and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to subvert the people’s choice of governor but she stood her ground and insisted she would do the right thing.

“I shall stand squarely and unapologetically on these principles. The people’s votes and mandate shall stand.

“The pastor and the mother in me will not permit me to do anything that will adversely affect the future of our children,” said Nnannaya-Oti, who is the vice-chancellor of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri.

Ukpabi, on Thursday, via Facebook announced he would give her the SUV as soon as it arrives Nigeria.

The realtor wrote, “For your outstanding service to the people of Abia, I hereby request for this Prado to be delivered to Mrs Nnenna Oti immediately it arrives Nigeria next month.

“Thank you for your service in Abia.”
