The former governor of Abia State, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, has formally defected to the ruling party APC.
Kalu recently lost his last hope to secure the senatorial seat in Abia North Senatorial zone through protracted court case in the Appeal court , which he lost to his opponent Chief Ohuabunwa.
Kalu was received by national chairman of All Progressive Congress, Chief John-Odigie, who led the National Working Committee at the party National Secretariat today, Wednesday 16th November in welcoming him to the party.
Orji Uzor Kalu said he has succumbed to pressures from his friends and well wishers to contribute his quota to building the party in Nigeria especially in the South East.
In this video, he said: “the National Secretary of APC is my brother and we talk all the time and he has beckoned on me to join the party to contribute my quota to national development”.
He obviously bowed to the pressure from peers to join the party to help build it in South East and in the rest of the country.
