Orji-Uzor-Kalu

Senate Chief Whip and Senator representing Abia North has hinted that Governor Okezie Ikpeazu would soon dump the Peoples Democratic Party for the All Progressive Congress, APC.

Kalu, a chieftain of APC, disclosed this in Umuahia while fielding questions from newsmen after a condolence visit to the member representing Umuahia East state constituency, Hon. Chukwudi Apugo over the demise of his mother, Madam Dorothy Apugo.

The former governor claimed that Ikpeazu promised to join APC during his first electoral case at the Supreme Court.

Kalu who expressed delight over the recent defection of Gov. David Umahi of Ebonyi State from PDP to APC said they were awaiting the arrival of Okezie in APC.

His words: >We have been waiting for Umahi because he made us the promise long ago like Abia governor Ikpeazu.

“We are waiting for Ikpeazu unless he changes his mind. One of my friends, a top security czar in Nigeria told me that when Ikpeazu was going for his first Supreme Court judgement, he promised that he would go to APC.

“I was called to agree to welcome him, and I agreed. APC is a party for all”.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner for Information, Chief John Okiyi Kalu, had however, in a recent media interview, dismissed rumours that Ikpeazu was plotting to defect to APC as false, insisting that the governor has no such plans.

The former Abia Governor who claimed he was the first person to doll out the initial N500 million to sponsor PDP at ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo’s house, said APC meant well for Ndigbo contrary to perceptions in some quarters.
