2023 elections heroine Professor Nnenna Oti, returned to Imo, Owerri, and was welcomed by a large crowd.
The staff and students trooped out to show their support for her. The FUTO’s Vice-Chancellor had acted as the electoral umpire for the 2023 gubernatorial polls in Abia state.
The students were proud to have their Vice-Chancellor take on such a significant role in Nigerian politics.
The only outstanding Vice-Chancellor!
Professor Oti served as the Independent National Electoral Commission’s 2023 elections returning officer for the controversial and tense Abia gubernatorial polls. While in this position, the professor maintained justice and fought for a free and fair election.
Under pressure from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, she declared the Abia 2023 elections result inconclusive. The Labour Party had already won 16 out of 17 local governments in the state. Prof Oti announced the Abia state 2023 governorship election winner after moving to the INEC headquarters in Abuja due to pressure and intimidation.
Netizens showered praises on her and advised her in the comments. Some also dropped motivational quotes. See some of their reactions:
@EngrAndy: “She has written her name in Gold. Peter Obi loves working with people with integrity. People who cannot compromise for money. I hope PO reclaims our mandate and appoints her in a higher position to help clean up the mess in Nigeria.”
@EdidiongThomas9: “It’s so easy to make a good name for yourself in Nigeria. Just do the right thing and you will be printed in Gold. She should pick up a LP Gubernatorial form, we will take it from there.”
@Chidoazuamairo: “She performed her electoral duties in Abia state but her good work speaks beyond boundaries. Well done Prof Oti!!”
Man sends wife packing because of Ekiti state results
Meanwhile, during the heat of accusations of compromising on the 2023 Nigerian presidential elections, a man hilariously sent his Ekiti wife packing.
This occurred after Bola Tinubu, All Progressive’s Congress (APC)’s candidate won the presidential election in Ekiti state.
Akeem Lasisi, the Presiding Officer of INEC in the state at the state’s collation center in Ado-Ekiti, announced Tinubu’s victory over Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi of Peoples Democratic Party and Labour Party respectively.
