The Chief Whip of the Senate, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu at the weekend formally received two former members of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Hon Obinna Oriaku and Hon George Nnanna Kalu into the All Progressives Congress (APC)).
Receiving the two PDP decampees at his country home, Senator Kalu said he had the mandate of the interim chairman of APC and governor of Yobe State to cultivate new members for the party in the state. He also called on the Abia State government to desist from harassing its members as everyone had their rights to freedom of association.
Responding, Hon Nnana Kalu who called Senator Kalu the democratic leader of Abia state, thanked him for welcoming him to the party, promising to make the party great.
Meanwhile, Oriaku in his speech noted that his joining the APC was not accidental but a well thought out plan, while expressing belief that the APC will win the governorship seat in 2023.
He described the APC as the only hope for the Abia State.
