The immediate past Group Managing Director of Diamond Bank, Dr Alex Otti was declared the winner of the 2015 Abia Governorship elections, by the Appeal Court on the eve of 2016.
However, his rival Dr Okezie Ikpeazu of the PDP- who was initially declared winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission and by the Election Tribunal- wasn’t satisfied with the outcome and therefore took the case to the Supreme Court as a last resort.
So it was quite surprising in all its entirety when HKN superstar, Davido who is currently in New York, took to Twitter to congratulate Dr. Alex Otti.
There are indeed several questions about this flabbergasting familiarity.
Firstly, why did he decide to congratulate him today? Three weeks after the announcement of the Appeal Court’s ruling.
Does he know something we don’t or he simply wanted to join the bandwagon of the supporters’ club of the APGA candidate, who has trended on Twitter for most of the day, for nothing in particular?
Secondly, what is the connection between Davido and Alex Otti because last we checked, they have no cultural ties or family ties?
Perhaps, Dr. Otti is in his wealthy father’s circle of friends and close associates.
Regardless of what it may be- we also congratulate ‘Uncle’ Davido in advance, for his ‘major deal’ to be announced later today.
