Apugo, putting party aside, said as a concerned elder statesman, he was happy about the positive turn of events in the state and we quote him: “My party does not mean anything to me, I am a chieftain of the APC, a member National Board of Trustees, member of the National Caucus of the APC.

“My concern is my state, today. Today, I am happy about what is happening in my state.

“Before he (Governor Otti) won the election, I told Abia people to vote for him, not minding the position I am holding in my party.

“I never bordered with the (governorship) candidate of the APC. We had none. I told Abia people that this man (Governor Otti) will bring us back to life. That’s what I told them, and all of them listened to me. And what I said that time, it’s no longer myself alone, now, that is saying it. Everybody is saying that Abia has come to stay,” Apugo affirmed.

According to the strongman of Abia politics, those who governed Abia for the past 24 years did not do well as, according to him, they merely looted Abia, stressing that he could not see what they accomplished.

He said Governor Otti has done what he (Apugo) wanted him to do, and therefore did not need any advice from him. He, however, said that the Governor would now have to advice others, who would succeed him, to listen to the people and work in line with their desire.
