Sports enthusiast and prominent politician, Orji Uzor Kalu is drumming up support for the ruling All Progressives Congress in the South-eastern part of Nigeria.
Former Abia state governor, Orji Uzor Kalu has openly stated that the APC presents the only chance for an Igbo to rule Nigeria.
He said that joining the ruling All progressives congress (APC) was the only oppurtunity for igbo to have a say at the national level. The businessman made this statements at his country home in Igbere where he hosted some political office holders.
Kalu urged them to join and support the ruling party in order to ensure its victory in the south east in 2019. He added that the party did not belong to president Buhari neither was it an all Hausa party.
In his words;
“Let me tell you this clearly, APC is not an Hausa party as they have been deceiving the people. APC is not owned by President Muhammadu Buhari; the possibility of an Igbo man becoming the president of this country is clearer in APC than in any other party including the PDP.
“When we formed the PDP, some people were saying it was an Hausa party as they are saying of APC now, but it was the same PDP that produced former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan who are southerners.”
