While commissioning the fleet of vehicles which he purchased for the outfit, the governor explained that the development was in fulfilment of his campaign promises.

In a post on his X handle (formerly Twitter), Otti asserted that his administration has zero tolerance for Crimes, hence, unknown gunmen and criminals should excuse Abia State.
