Abia PDP slams Senate Chief Whip, Orji Uzor Kalu over Ikpeazu defection comments


The Peoples’ Democratic Party [PDP] Abia State has slammed Senate Chief Whip and Senator representing Abia North Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu by describing his allegation of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu crossing over to All Progressive Congress [APC] as untrue.

In a video published by an online media outlet, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu was captured alleging that Governor Okezie Ikpeazu had promised to join the APC if he won his Supreme Court case. He was speaking in the wake of David Umahi’s defection to the APC.

But in a reaction at the weekend signed by Honorable Chief Fabian Nwankwo, Abia State PDP Publicity Secretary, he described the allegation as false and also stated that Supreme Court cases are not won on the basis of party.

He advised Senator Orji Uzor Kalu to prevail on President Muhammadu Buhari to tackle the growing insecurity, Economic retrogression, social injustice and decay of infrastructure in the country.
