The Abia state chapter of the All Progressive Congress has dismissed reports that it has suspended Abia North Senatorial candidate and Chief Whip of the Senate, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu.
The media was earlier in the day awash with reports that Kalu had been suspended. Denying the report, the party’s Spokesperson, Okey Ezeala described the reports as the “handiwork of the People’s Democratic Party.”
In a statement released by Ezeala, the party distanced itself from the report stating that there is no iota of truth in it.
“Senator Orji Uzor Kalu remains the candidate of our great party as both the party and his constituents are satisfied with his performance.”
On the allegation of anti-party activities and other offenses, the party labeled the accusations as entirely false, stating that Orji Kalu has always remained a committed member of the party and its progress. Ezeala stated that there is no record of Orji Kalu campaigning against any of its candidates nor has the Senate Chief Whip campaigned for any other political candidate besides those of the APC.
He called on all members of the party to disregard the report and head to their various polling units to cast their votes for its candidates.
