Ahead of the 2019 elections, a former governor of Abia State, Orji Kalu, has stated that he can never dump the ruling party, APC for the opposition PDP.
NIGERIA NEWS gathered from reports that the former governor of Abia State, stated that APC is “where all Nigerians of note are sitting”.
He said, “Those politicians that are defecting are doing so for their selfish interest because they felt that they would not get the ticket from their former parties.”
“You saw that when I left the Peoples Democratic Party I did not return rather, I joined APC because it meets my expectations and that is where all Nigerians of note are sitting.’’
Kalu also assured that “he was determined to bring the Southeast geo-political zone into the mainstream of the nation’s politics.”
“I am currently working hard day and night to ensure that APC wins the governorship and National Assembly positions in all the states in the zone.”
“My ambition is to make sure that I bring the South-east to sit where other Nigerians are sitting and we must achieve it in 2019,’’ he said.
