A Presbyterian Church of Nigeria cleric, Reverend Ukpai Kalu, has advised that the people of Abia State senatorial district and South-East geo-political zone will benefit immensely if the Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu is reelected to the Senate in 2023.
In an interview with newsmen Tuesday morning after arriving in Abia State through Sam Mbakwe Airport Owerri, Rev. Kalu commended Senator Kalu as having done well to reposition Ndigbo at the centre of political negotiations and applauded the former Abia State Governor for his “exceptional’’ performance since he became the senator representing Abia North Senatorial District.
He appealed to the people of Abia North to support and reelect Kalu for the betterment of the district, adding “some people were there for decades with zero impact on our people. Kalu has done exceptionally well and I’m using this opportunity to urge the people of Abia North to continue to entrust the affairs of the zone into his hands.”
“You have to accept it if somebody does well. I can assure you that Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has done excellently since he was elected in 2019.
“Our people in Abia North Senatorial District, Abia State, and Ndigbo in general stand to benefit more if he is reelected to represent the district.
“We must unanimously support him because he has done so much by attracting development to Abia North through road projects, renovation of schools, and other basic amenities. More benefits will come if he is reelected, that’s the expectation.
“Those trying to challenge him should step down immediately because we don’t want any form of backwardness in Abia North”, he said.
