The former governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, has made it known he does not have plans to defect from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as many of his political colleagues are now doing.
Kunle Oyewumi, his media aide on Tuesday addressed rumours of Kalu defecting saying they were mischievous, falsehood and the handiwork of political jobbers and speculators.
Kalu said the APC of which he is not only a member, but a strong activist, “remains the only political party to salvage Nigeria from the atrocities of the previous administrations.’’
“My attention has been drawn to a news report in some online media that I am set to dump the APC for the PDP. The malicious report is not only laughable but mischievous. This is another attempt by enemies of progress to cause disaffection and confusion in the APC.
I remain a solid and committed member of the APC. Those behind the falsehood should seek attention from legitimate pursuits. I am not bothered and will not lose sleep over the activities of political jobbers.
It is no longer news that I will be vying for a seat in the Senate (Abia North) under the APC in 2019. I will rather quit politics than to return to the PDP because the APC is the only political party that will take Nigeria to enviable heights,’’ he stressed.
