Kalu Joining APC Is A Big Plus For Our Party – Okorocha

Governor Rochas Okorocha has said the defection of former Abia State Governor Orji Uzor Kalu to the ruling All Progressives Congress is a good development for the party and the South-East.

The governor regretted that although he had been persuading the Igbo, especially political leaders in the zone to join APC, but he was blackmailed and called names.

He said current events in the country had exonerated him and shown that he was not just wasting his time. Okorocha noted that with the likes of Kalu now in the APC, the development of Igbo land under the party would be easier.

He said: “Orji Kalu as an illustrious Igbo son is a political asset any political party would like to have in its fold.”

Okorocha urged other frontline Igbo politicians to follow the Kalu’s example.

He expressed delight that Igbo political leaders had begun to respond positively to his clarion call to join APC “where the action is taking place now and will continue to take place with good leadership which the party is determined to offer Nigerians.”

Okorocha said there were no old members and new members in APC because all the members were equal in their membership.
