Abia govt alleges plot to blackmail Governor Otti

The Abia State government Wednesday, said it had uncovered an orchestrated plot by disgruntled politicians to sponsor a blackmail campaign against Governor Alex Otti using unnamed media outlets.

The state government in a statement by Senior Special Adviser to Governor Otti on Media, Ferdinand Ekeoma, noted that certain individuals had paid unnamed media outlets to propagate a false narrative about the incumbent administration.

Ekeoma said: “A plot to unleash consistent vicious media onslaughts and blackmail against the Governor Alex Otti, and the government of Abia State, has been uncovered.

A certain federal lawmaker gathered some media men over the weekend in Abuja and handed over tons of fake documents purportedly from the government to the media men to support the launch of a media onslaught on the governor.

What is clear is that the plot is being bankrolled by those with the delusional desire to hold Abia State down in penurious perpetuity that was rejected by the people at the polls,” he added.
