Specifically, Otti offered to engage the minister on the Umuahia-Bende-Abriba-Ohafia to Arochukwu federal road, which, he recalled, contract for its rehabilitation was awarded by the defunct Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) when former President Muhammadu Buhari was the chairman under the late General Sani Abacha’s regime.
