The Senate Chief Whip and former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, told Ebonyi State Governor Dave Umahi that no All Progressive Congressional leader, APC, will be left behind in their search to create a stronger South East Zone party.
He said this while dismissing media reports that he and other APC bigwigs in the region were not pleased that he (Umahi) had joined the party.
Kalu spoke when he hosted Governor Dave Umahi, Chairman of the South East Governors’ Forum, at a dinner in Abuja.
The former governor of Abia insisted that the East APC were the happiest people over the defection of Umahi, adding that he believed they had a lot to do with the region collectively.
“My advice is that we must go with all our leaders. All our leaders must be involved. We are not going to leave anybody,” he said.
“We are not going to leave Ngige, we are not going to leave Ogbonnaya Onu, we are going to leave the Honourable Minister of Mines, the Honourable Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Honourable Minister Sharon, the Honourable Minister Nwajiuba, Hope Uzodinma, Rochas Okorocha, everybody. Ken Nnamani is already on board because he represents us in the party executive,” Kalu said.
