Alex Otti has shown that Past Abia governors were not LGA chairman level – Basketmouth

Ace comedian and actor, Bright Okpocha also known as Basketmouth, has compared the performance of the governor of Abia state, Ale Otti, to his predecessors.

He took to his Twitter page on Wednesday, and expressed interest in knowing how the past governors feel seeing Otti execute infrastructure projects that they neglected.

According to Basketmouth, everything the governor has done since he was sworn in last year gives the impression that Okezie Ikpeazu, Theodore Orji, and other former governors of the state are not up worthy of being Local government chairman.

The comedian who hails from Abia state, asked that citizens check on them to be sure if they are okay with what’s been happening.

He wrote; “I wonder how ALL former Governors of Abia state are feeling now seeing Dr Otti’s current performance. It’s suggesting that the former Governors’ were not even LGA chairman level. Can someone please check on them to see if they are ok? They must not take it. Okay. Bye.”

@basket_mouth replied; I’m going to do it this year. I promise. I’m a Lannister.
