I’ll adopt Obi’s model to cut cost of governance in Abia — Otti

    Published By:

    Abia state governor-elect, Alex Otti, has said he will cut cost of governance by using the model of employed by Peter Obi, in Anambra between 2006 and 2014.

    “My presidential candidate did very well in Anambra State because he reined in the cost of governance.

    “And it’s the same kind of model that we are going to run in Abia. There are only so many jobs you can create in the public sector,” Alex Otti stated this while featuring on Channels Television on Thursday.

    “We are going to run a lean government. We are going to cut our coats according to our size (cloth). We believe it is the private sector that should be supported to create jobs. And whatever it takes to support private sector, we do exactly that.

    “But we are not going to run bogus governance. We are not going to get ourselves involved in very high cost of travel. There is a State that spent N2 billion within a year to charter private jets. That does not make sense.

    “I find out a lot is spent on buying expensive wines and champagne, among others. That is also not responsible. So, we’re going to run a lean government to be able to cut the cost of government to support the economy,” he said.

    He added; “We in Labour Party ‘no dey give shishi’ but that does not mean we will be unreasonable. No, far from it. We will be very reasonable. Peter Obi is also very reasonable. He just doesn’t throw away money and always ensure he get maximum value for that money and that include going to the market to price it himself.”
