Ikpeazu, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Onyebuchi Ememanka, noted that Otti fought a long battle over a very long period of time and deserves commendation for his staying power and resilience.

“Since we have come to the logical end of this battle, it is appropriate to congratulate the winner, Dr Alex Otti on his hard-fought victory. In every battle, there will always be a winner and in the spirit of sportsmanship and love for our state, the Governor-elect must see his victory as a higher call to service to the people of Abia State,” he said.

The Governor also saluted the other governorship candidates who took part in the election, especially the PDP candidate, Sir Okey Ahiwe, for their doggedness, adding that the Governor-Elect should be given an enabling environment to run the affairs of the state from May 29, 2023. He urged the candidates not to distract the incoming Governor with court cases.

He said: “Having, myself, spent about three and half years in different courts and having experienced firsthand the distraction such cases can cause a leader, I appeal to every candidate in this election not to distract the incoming administration with court cases so that they will settle down and deal with the very demanding business of governance. Let us break this negative trend of subjecting our Governors to endless litigation and allow them to concentrate on providing good governance.”
