Why I Joined APC – Kalu
Former Abia State governor and chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu has disclosed his reasons for joining the ruling party.
Kalu, who was a guest on Arise Television in Abuja, stated that he joined the APC because of the personality of the President Muhammadu Buhari.
“I joined APC because of Buhari. I joined because of his integrity, so as to help grow the party in the South East,” Kalu said.
The former governor also stressed that he will will add a lot of value to the APC in the South East by ensuring President Buhari gets massive votes from the region should he decide to contest the 2019 presidential election.
His words: “I know him (Buhari) personally. The country needs him to complete his tenure.
“APC has come to stay in the South East. Buhari contesting in 2019 is not only for himself but also, for the South East. After Buhari’s eight years, nobody in Nigeria can tell us that our region cannot produce the president. Majority of the Igbo people will massively support Buhari in 2019. They did not support him in 2015. But, in 2019, they will massively vote for him. I am passing a vote of confidence in him because he has integrity.
“I am not the only one passing a vote of confidence in Buhari, the APC governors just endorsed him for a second term, the World Bank is supporting what he is doing, so also is the Eurpoean Union, including other powerful world leaders.”
