A former governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor Kalu, has stated that the All Progressive Congress (APC) would put an end to what he described as the rigging jamboree of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and take over the leadership of the state.
He made the comment while addressing zonal and ward executives of the Donatus Nwankpa faction of the party in his Igbere home, over the weekend, Vanguard reports.
NAIJ.com gathers that the former governor said the APC would sack the PDP from the governorship house in 2019 and “free Abia people from bondage and lies being fed them.”
He said that instead of delivering the dividends of democracy by providing amenities that would uplift the lives of the citizens, the PDP is thriving in propaganda and lies.
He urged APC members in the state to remain steadfast in their support for President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration and not get intimidated by the PDP.
He said: “We will match PDP anyhow they want it; we must sack them from Government House, Umuahia. We will work to free Abia state from bondage. We cannot allow the locust to continue to occupy Abia. There will be no locust in Abia again.
“The state is feeding us with lies. You are told that you were in bondage, but who is in bondage now? It is a government of lies, but we will ensure that they are voted out.
“Forget the saying that PDP will rig the election, it will not be possible again, just do your work well. That era of their rigging is gone.
“All members of the National Assembly went there by default. We don’t want any other default lawmakers again; we want to have active representatives.
“If PDP wants us to fight in the election, we will fight. I am as rugged as rock. We will not allow them to intimidate anybody.”
Recall that NAIJ.com previously reported that Orji Uzor Kalu boasted that the APC would win Abia in the 2019 elections.
The former governor stated that the APC had mobilized enough to give the PDP a run for its money.
He further expressed satisfaction with the level of voters’ registration in his community, and lauded the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the development.
