The Senate Chief Whip, Chief Uzor Kalu, has expressed optimism about the strength of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as 2023 approaches, after some People’s Democratic Party (PDP) members joined the party.
The 60-year-old Kalu, who ruled Abia State for 8 years said that the sheer might of the ruling party will be felt more in the forthcoming general elections.
Kalu said this at his hometown of Igbere, at an event held to welcome thousands of PDP members who decamped to the APC.
“We are a party that encourages people to pay workers’ salaries, pensions, build roads and take care of society. Our business is to think and work toward the welfare of Abia, Imo, Enugu, Ebonyi, Anambra people and Nigerians”, NAN quoted him as saying.
“Today is a remarkable day. I welcome you to this great party, which is for all Nigerians. We believe that this party will make all of us proud. The party believes in the rule of law; it believes things should be done well and believes in Nigerians.”
Kalu charged the decampees to work for the progress of the party, adding that the APC is a disciplined party that prioritizes the wellbeing of the masses ahead of personal gain.
