Future of South-East lies with APC – Kalu
The former governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, said on Saturday the political future of the South-East lies in the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Kalu, who stated this in a post on his verified Facebook page, urged APC members in Abia State to forget about defecting to another party due to the crisis rocking the party in the state.
Two factions loyal to Ikechi Emenike and Donatus Nwankpa are fighting for the control of APC in the state.
He said: “In today’s politics of Nigeria, the future of the South-East geopolitical zone is in the All Progressives Congress (APC ). This is why I have continued to encourage all members of the APC in Abia State to remain in the party and forget about jumping ship.

“The reality is that in every democratic setting, the majority will always have their way. In addition, the signing of the electoral act by President Muhammadu Buhari has also given Nigerians the assurance that it is impossible for one man to win elections.
“Those who believe in the party and Mr President are encouraged to remain faithful to the party and support the growth of the party across board.
“I am pleading with my brothers and sisters who are passing through difficult moments to be patient. It may be rough today but definitely not the same tomorrow.”
